It uses two batteries* and I like the idea of showing them and the sheer cost of running such a radio. Note to self, make a "laminated explainer" and two replica batteries. The works colour (A3!) laser printer may have to be hijacked for this.

Yes they are out of sight in my photos, they (the museum) don't pretend to historically accurate but "close enough for government work" and (as seen) open to suggestion. And one of my radios has now a real purpose.
