    Howdy all,

    My first post here.

    I've been scouring the internet for info on what options a B-29 crew had during WWII in the case of an emergency but it's hard to fit the bits and pieces of info together. Hoping someone here can help :)

    To be specific- I'm writing a story. In my story a B-29 is shot down and crash lands in the lagoon of an island with a few survivors making it to shore.

    If their onboard radio was no longer working what options did they have? So far I have seen references to a 'Gibson Girl' radio and an AN/CRC-7 radio. If one of those is correct, do you know how they are used?

    Thanks in advance!

    What a great website! :)
