  1. Operation Jericho

    On this day In 1944 a flight of Mosquitoes took off from Hunsdon airfield in Herfordshire for a raid on Amiens prison in France where French resistance and political prisoners were being held,some awaiting execution,it was a precision attack with the walls being breached and a number of captives escaping although many were later caught but the raid did destroy a lot of German documentaion on resistants and other prisoners. There is some British Pathe film of the raid on youtube and a lot has been written about the raid if you care to search,i will raise a glass tommorow night to you gentlemen.

  9. Odd radio mounting tray?

    Solved, Thanks to Andy g8jac for solving this question,it's the mounting tray for a bid150 crypto unit of all things.
  10. Odd radio mounting tray?

    Chris, It crossed my mind that it may be for the a14 vehicle mounting gubbins which is quite a slim affair but only having seen one once i seem to recall it was something like the a13 vehicle mount but without the legs although i could be going off track,although it is the two holes in the clamp that are odd,are they for a strap to go across or for bolts to go through to attach whatever they hold.
  11. Odd radio mounting tray?

    Richard, It's 54.5cm wide and 32.5cm deep that is the inside measurement where the eqpt would sit,nobody knows on the clansman larkspur group either,it's not for a teleprinter at least not a Siemens t100/c11/r210 as i have just sold a vehicle with that setup installed and it's not for a c12 as that used the 19set carrier.
  12. French PRC-10 power supply question

    Bilbo I see you say our prc10 so guess you are in the USA,i have a British a41 which is almost identical and have used a French psu for a prc19 to power it although it was removed from the case with the protruding pins and runs nicely from 2 1.2Ah sla batteries all fitted into the old battery case(the waxy one)which then slots into the metal case,i did not change any wiring and the plug fitted so maybe i was lucky and did not have a smoke leak but check with somebody knowledgeable than myself and if you can avoid it do not butcher the case!
  13. 8m Mast / Aerial

    Hi Jarrett, Could well be ,radio gear is not my strong point ! Rob Should have a great big insulator to go at the base for when it is used as a vertical radiator,but yes Larkspur from looking at rhe pigtails on the guy ropes and the big stakes for them,lucky you have the c spanner for locking it off as these often get mislaid,if you put it up just watch it does not slide down a section as it will make a mess of the flap of skin between thumb and forefinger(no i haven't done it)
  14. 8m Mast / Aerial

  15. Having a sort out and came across this one,it has been overpainted so no nsn visible and is the same size as Larkspur trays(one of the reasons i have it)it has four Barry mounts on the underside and looks as though the arms on the swing out clamps are for tightening in the absence of a spanner?and why the pin on the clamp plate facing outwards or am i barking up the wrong tree.
