The Companion CR-313 outfit was by no means special.
Usually the case style or the introduction dates of the movement can help to narrow this down though.
Of course that is going to happen, but not just yet, for the simple reason we (or they) still haven’t invented a decent battery.
Also, for as long we remember to fit accessible on/off switches to any technology that can potentially wipe us out us we’re probably safe for a while. To this pair of Companion CR-313 walkie-talkies, of course.
The current generation of inexpensive legal ‘consumer’ walkie talkies operate on multiple channels on UHF band, have many flashy features, like LCD displays, winky lights and a range of between 3 and 5km, but where’s the fun in that?
Collecting cheap vintage walkie-talkies isn’t yet a big thing, though models like the CR-313 fall into the toy category, where things can get a bit expensive.
They have just two controls, a volume, on/off thumbwheel, and a press-to-talk (PTT) switch on the side.
