Australian Army Wireless Set No. 128. The Wireless Set Number 128 was an Australian made backpack radio used by the Australian Army made by Tasma Radio (Thom & Smith Ltd, Mascot, NSW) in 1946 and the Mark 2 version in 1952. The physical form was copied from the American BC-1000 transceiver. The radio was tropicalised and was waterproof. It was designed in 1944 as a replacement for the WS No. 108 (the Australian version of the British WSNo.18), and entered service in 1946. It was used by the Army in Korea, and was eventually replaced from 1955 by the A510. Photo: Julian Tennant . Photo: Julian Tennant
