      PRC-85 K







is a Korean handy radio, also called
Korean Banana. It was developed from the circuit of PRR-9 / PRT-4. Here transmitter and receiver use the same crystal, so the radio has two channels.
Optically the relationship with PRR-9 is obvious:

  • Open battery case; holes have the same form as PRR-9;
  • Volume / Squelch- knob has same form and function as in PRR-9.
    Type- plate in case of the museum's radio: PRC-6AK.
