16) The Two-Way radio used by SG-1 is the Motorola VISAR with the 2.5" 'stubby' antenna.
With the Black Vest, this radio is usually represented (on the show) by a modified version of the same
VISAR radio with a bright red LED installed on the front to denote when an actor is transmitting.
(as seen in many scenes where the actor is holding the radio in their hand.)
Unmodified Motorola VISAR radios can be found nearly every day on eBay for $75-$125 US.
