In this post nuclear bomb television series, amateur radio was there to help out several times. There was only one ham radio in this small town of Kansas, the owner being a little unorthodox unfortunately. Robert Hawkins is found with a Yaesu FT-101F HF transceiver which he uses to copy down morse code he overhears. Heather Lisinski is also found using the same radio to communicate with residents of Fall River, Missouri to find out the status of their town and get help to them. There were many handheld radios used in this series as well. When the fake Marines come through Jericho, one of them was put in charge of fixing an old "brick" style handheld radio they had. Jake gave up some of the Yaesu radio parts in order to help them fix the handheld since Hawkins lied to them, stating that the ham didn't work. Eric Green is seen using an older "brick" style Motorola HT also which had some chrome on the rear and a big symbol "M". Later in the series the Secret Service comes to the town of Jericho. They use "secure" walkie-talkies.

Yaesu FT-101F

The Yaesu FT-101F was manufactured in Japan from 1978-1980. The "F" series was the last of the FT-101 series.

N7GAR Personal Note:

I thoroughly enjoyed this television series. Definitely the best show I have ever seen. I heard about Jericho in early 2009 after it had already been canceled for some time. I wondered if there were "other" reasons that lead to it's cancellation... Anyway, I watched the entire series online in just 5 days. Now, of course I own the complete series.
