The WM-F73 was very similar to the WM-F63, the only difference being that the radio offered an extra "TV" band. As this covered VHF channels only, it was of no use the UK and so this model was not sold there. It still appeared in at least one UK catalogue though. The splashproof casing was held shut during playback by a large black plastic catch around the tape transport keys. The radio section was mainly constructed in the cassette door, so it was not possible to offer a large cassette viewing window. The only way the user could see the direction of tape travel was to look through a small round hole that made the centre of one of the tape spools visible.
