Which Ham Radio was used in Live Free or Die Hard with Bruce Willis?

The ADI AR-147 as a police radio. I just saw AR-147 on my blue-ray version of the picture.

Just a fun fact I wanted to share.

Yep, many noticed that.

Not as cool as the old Clegg stuff used on "ALF," though.

While we're at it, what HF radio was used in the movie "Frequency"? I could never figure it out.

I remember that the name of the transceiver was obscured so as not to advertise the make and model.

Perhaps it was just a cannibalized movie prop transceiver with the super bright red glow of the "vacuum tubes" for good visual effect.

::It was a Heathkit SB-300 or SB-301 (they both look almost exactly the same).  They used a "receiver" for transmitting, which I thought was kind of fun.

Since "Frequency" was mentioned, it's interesting to note when working "W2QYV" they are not amused when you ask about Frank Sullivan.

Here is a website listing several movies and TV shows involving ham radio in some way:

I am the trustee of the call sign W2QYV. I can tell you that if you have worked W2QYV and asked about Frank Sullivan, you would have gotten a good chuckle. Anyone of the club members who have ever been "worked" think it is pretty  neat our call was used in a movie and we enjoy talking about it.
