This thread started out talking about amateur radio gear appearing in movies/television, but it has now crept to talking about all kinds of radios on the screen. So, the thread has been moved to the Tavern.

The movie "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" has a few scenes with radios,they are in a what appears to be radio shop in San Fancisco. Anybody get a good look at some of those radios or what they are?

I just received my copy of the New Mike Hammer series, the 1997 one. In several episodes there are shots of various Zenith vintage radios in his office. The series is set in the time it aired, so all these radios were already antiques. It several episodes I saw a Zenith Transoceanic G500, and in one episode, called Dump the Creep, Velda is even tuning itnin. In another episode I spotted a floor model Zenith shortwave, with a circular dial. Nice radios!

The HT radio in the original Die Hard looked to be an icom micro2AT. Must have been software defined. Use to comm with terrorists, cb radios and police.

Nein! It was the UHF Kenwood TH-41AT model -- modified to Tx on 27 Mhz of course.

TV, not movies, but on the weather channel's "Highway thru Hell" it looks like everyone is using Icom F121's or F5021's. Must be a dandy dealer in those parts.

Now that the ham gear moniker has been expanded, the movie Tears From The Sun got to me. Being a Navy comms tech, and watching the guys talking over a long distance, with one of them standing on the flight deck, I knew how much BS was in the scene.

Has anyone watched a new series on the USA network called Colony ? The premise of story revolves around an alien occupation of Los Angeles and a former FBI agent who is coerced into working for them. The radios that are used by the quasi govt. agency which employs him appear to be Baofeng UV5Rs.

Default Radios in die hard

They weren't actually used to talk on but as props

I just saw the Fate of the Furious movie, the 8th movie in The Fast and The Furious franchise. Great movie and I couldn't help but notice the fleet of Baofeng UV-5R handhelds used. They were not even powered on except for one in a particular scene where the display was glowing orange as it normally does during Tx.

1st: The Fast and The Furious: Don't recall seeing any radios used, except for crystal scanners scanning and hearing chatter while the scanner never stops scanning.

2nd: 2 Fast 2 Furious: Motorola TalkAbout T7200 handhelds.

3rd: Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift: Don't recall seeing any radios used.

4th: Fast and Furious: Don't recall seeing radios used.

5th: Fast Five: Motorola EX500 series UHF handhelds.

6th: Fast and Furious 6: Hytera X1p handhelds.

7th: Furious 7: Hytera X1p handhelds.

8th: Fate of the Furious: Fleet of Baofeng UV-5R handhelds and a few ancient Motorola Saber bricks spotted. The Sabers probably appeared because the plot takes place in NYC and they can get ancient Motorola Sabers at yard sale prices.

They went real cheap on radios in Fate of the Furious.
