For those of you who haven't already seen this, and always wondered about the three digit number on the rear cover of your Japanese radios. http://www.radiomuseum.org/forum/japan_757.html

Some of the smaller islands of Japan can also be seen printed on the rear cover.

Greg.

Hi all
I have just seen this by chance. We opened this thread because we still wonder if there is not an official list. Before we find it, we enter the brands/manufacturers we know for certain by photo on model page etc.

You are invited to bring in here a photo with the number and the brand. Best is naturally the pair: Japan Manufacturer / US brand. But this seems to be rare - therefore our efforts. Any solid information is welcome - to the benefit of all of us. :-)

Cordially,
Ernest

Hello;
This is what I found. LLOYD'S model 5K05A and FANTAVOX TA-8001 seem to be made by STANDARD. These radios bear code 517.

Regards, Jinkei

Dear Jinkel
Thank you very much for showing your collection of MITI Japan Code 517 radios.
Interesting to see that your Fantavox TA-8001 shows a square loudspeaker "grill" and the one you see on radiomuseum.org has a round one ... And you can see in what wonderful case it came (to the member Gerhard Härtl.
https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/fantavox_micro_radio_ta_8001.html

I entered all into the list and I created the Lloyd's 5K05A by copying the page for 5K05B we already show.

I also linked some together and to the list plus from the list to the model page.

Would be nice if you could send your photos in big size (1400 pixel width) - or get a free membership to load up some of your collection. Then you would have to fill in the profile and to tell me, so I can tell the paid secretary to give you a free membership. Any who likes to help building up this reference work ... which is probably an endless build ... We show 95 thousand models from the USA but miss a log of information and pictures. Since we give away schematics for free it is much harder to get members who like to do something.
Here the country list:

Cordially,

303 was/is/should be Rendell (a portmanteau of Rend (sp?) Electronics or something like that) - they made most of the Topp Electronics (Juliette) stuff we serviced back in the 70s. Until 2003, I had the complete service library, on paper. Somebody with a Juliette radio (non-Hong Kong...) might be able to verify this.

Shogyo (still in business) supplied ALL the Japanese manufacturers back in the 70s, and may have some further information. They still supply many aftermarket component brands - GC, Philmore, Calrad, etc. Of course, Shogyo's catalog has shrunk considerably - they used to sell the poly variable caps used in most transistor portables, as well as the flat volume controls.

Having a service shop abutting a poor neighborhood, and being in a Navy town, we saw it all. Can't say I enjoyed servicing some brands, but it was definitely good for experience building....
