Anyone remember/hear of Raleigh Electronics?

Need some help or advice on how to set up a mobile. This is the place to ask.

Anyone remember/hear of Raleigh Electronics?

I'm in the process of cleaning out my late mother's house and have started on the bedroom that was mine and my late brother's. One of the things I found were my and my brother's old walkie-talkies from the 60s. They are Raleigh TC-78 models and use Channel 7. The 9vdc batteries are still in their pocket in the Styrofoam packaging, I'm assuming they died years ago, of course. I'll have to get a couple fresh batteries and try these babies out.

Raleigh Electronics had a bunch of things, toy trains (HO scale), model car and truck kits, and those WT's think they were called "Adventurers", around here back then they were sold at the local "Western Auto" stores. The more expensive radio (CB, car stereo) and such went under the "Truetone" name. Good find, definitely a collectors item.
