Orljonok is Russian for "Eaglet"; it was also the name of a communist youth movement.
The radio has seven germanium transistors and receives the medium wave (187-571 meters) and long wave (735-2000 meters). Later versions (like this one) had a transformerless output stage.
The nominal output power is 40 mW and the frequency range is 800 to 2500 Hz.
The receiver was made by Sarapoul Orjonikidze Radio Works. This factory was founded in 1941 as "Orjonikidze Radio Works No. 203".
In West-Germany the radio was sold for 120 DM.
