I think the poster meant "retractable".

I assume they're recharged through the DIN connector. Where is the recharger?

Channel 1 and 22.

! watt.

At least they're not on channel 14 or 19 so you MIGHT have
a chance at being able to use them.

A 5' long antenna on a hand held radio is rather impressive, rechargeable
or not.

I got a pair of 100mW walkie talkies for Easter, I think 1967. It didn't
take long before the kid across the street had the whip full length but
for some reason he's pressing it against a wall, and soon the antenna was
broken.

I could have used a rechargeable whip then.  It took getting another
walkie talkie to get things back to "normal", I'm not really sure how that
happened since they tended to come in pairs.

They were not the kind that included a big button to send "morse code"
complete with the alphabet right on there.  I have no idea why I didn't
get one of those fancier models.  Perhaps that feature came later.

The 49MHz walkie talkies that came out much later were so much better, not
just a superhet receiver (of course you could get those for the 100mW CB
walkie talkies, but they cost more), but FM.  I eventually took one of
those 1967 walkie talkies up to the mountain here (it's relative, no
mountain climbing required) and tried it, kind of a big heterodyne, no
doubt made the worse because of the wide regen receiver.  None of that
heterodyning on those FM walkie talkies.
