I just saw this revived thread, the bell shape and thicker antenna shaft looks more like a CAR antenna to me. (quick google images search turned up this one)

This is a screenshot from an episode later in the run of the series. Looks like a slightly different antenna than the one in the b&w pic above.

Was watching an episode and Gilligan had an earphone plugged into the left side where they must have installed a jack. You don't see a jack otherwise on most shots. I wonder how many radios they used?

Re: Gilligan's Island Radio



Not interested in this prop myself.

But forget what I wrote...it´s a FAKE/ REPLICA PB radio, not the real deal I saw the auction of. Sorry

And if those cardboard fakes weren't bad enough, there is now an eBay seller selling (inaccurate) antennas and $2 drawer handles for $25 each. It amazes me the lengths some people will go to scam others out of a couple of bucks.

Could the antenna possibly be from an old walkie talkie, either real professional grade or toy?

With this radio being as rare and expensive as seems to be, I'm surprised that no one has tried making at least a shell that's 3D printed/printable.

Funny you should mention that :)
