    Default Any info on Geloso receivers and/or transmitters out there?

    My curiosity was piqued when I saw one portrayed on the Bond flick "Dr. No". Right at the beginning a British agent is using one to contact London and is murdered in mid-transmission.

    I've found quite a few pictures, but little text about Antonio Geloso and his radio gear. The transmitter looks to be about equal to a Johnson Ranger (single 6146, plate modulated). I'm curious if they ever had evolved into newer models (solid state?) or were they just a flash in the boot.

    I guess the Euro ops would best know . . . I've never seen one here stateside.

    Geloso made "standard" broadcast receivers and other things long before they got into the amateur radio market. The company is still in business but is now known as Pasosound.

    Here are some links:

    Over the years, I have seen a couple. But, at least in this country, they are pretty scarce.

    Geloso made a really good VFO back in the late '50s/early '60s. Used it with an Eico 720.

    In 1964, our chief engineer at the Mars Hill Hammarlund plant bought a Geloso VFO module. To say it was disappointingly drifty was being kind.
