The following is a list of all communication devices seen throughout Thunderbirds.
Main Communications on Tracy IslandEdit
- Main article: Tracy Villa
Jeff carries a mini-album of family photos, that can easily be slipped into his pocket. Each son's photo doubles as a communications link, like the portrait gallery in the Tracy Lounge (Thunderbirds Are Go (film)).
Thunderbird 4 has built-in communications, within the control instrument panel, allowing Gordon hands-free operation.
In The Mighty Atom, Gordon is seen using a hand-held microphone.
International Rescue used several different types of communication devices throughout their missions.
Behind Jeff Tracy's desk is the Auto-Transmission Unit, it was used in the episode Desperate Intruder to try and make contact with the Base camp at Lake Anasta, after Brains had failed to report in on time.
Hand-Held Walkie-Talkie (Short-Range)Edit
Also known as (full title) Personal Intercall Wrist Communicator.
In Thunderbird 6, Jeff and Alan communicate using their watches.
In Move - And You're Dead, Alan used one while he was stuck on the San Miguel Bridge.
Brains' watch in Day Of Disaster.
Hand-Held Walkie-Talkie (Long-Range)Edit
Used by Tin-Tin in The Cham-Cham to contact Tracy Island from Paradise Peaks Hotel.
Several types of hand-held microphones were used by International Rescue; the types are listed here in order of their use.
Silver microphone with black handle.
Silver microphone with white handle.
Small aerial version
Gold microphone with white base.
Single-barrel type with round microphone top.
Black microphone with a red handle.
Type 8 Edit
An early type used by Virgil aboard Thunderbird 2.
In the episode Danger At Ocean Deep, Scott uses a type of Stethoscope to try to make contact with the crew of Ocean Pioneer II. The device has a suction-cup speaker that can penetrate the sound of Scott's voice (via a hand-held microphone) through walls and doors, and can pick up any sound being received.
Located in Tin-Tin's bedroom in the Expedition Caravan at Lake Anasta, this was a simple bedside, microphone-and-speaker system. Tin-Tin and Brains referred to this machine - from the episode Desperate Intruder - as a "Talk-Back."
