    WS19 loudspeaker system

    Thanks for that link I will drop him an email and see if he can help. Kevin.
  2. I have the headphones for the set (ws19 mk2) but am now wanting to set up a loudspeaker system for it. I have a control box 3B mk 2/1 and a spare male drop lead connector,to set up a speaker system is it just a matter of connecting the wires from a speaker to the correct pins ( 2 & 3 the green and black wires I think) on the drop lead? Or is this too simple? What rating ,ohm and wattage, speaker should I use? I have a 4 ohm 170 w and a 8 ohm 15 w speaker available. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.Thank you. Kevin.

    WS 19 Battery size

    Hi Guys, Thank you all very much for your detailed informative replies - very much appreciated. Having given the matter some more thought and bearing in mind my useage of the set ( receive only) I think that the best option for me is to use batteries - a 12v 85ah as PT suggested. Just for information the set is a mk2 will both English and Russian writting on it.It does work in that it does receive,I cant transmit as I do not have a license and at this moment in time have no plans to get one. PT - I was pleased to be able to get this set up and running at last - just leaves me with the 209 to get going,in this respect I have been able to locate and speak to the person who modified the set and hopefully he will be able to advise/show me on how to bring it back to a running condition again. All the best, Kevin.
  4. I have got my 19 set up and running at last and am now wanting to use it both as a working rally/show exhibit and also for my own enjoyment as an indoor set up. Could anyone kindly advise me - firstly - what size (as in amp hours etc) 12 v battery I need and secondly recomend a 240 v AC to 12 v DC converter to use please? Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you. All the best, Kevin.

    WS19 variometer seating plate

    Hi, Thank you very much for that link -I will watch that item with interest. All the best, Kevin.
  7. Hi Guys, I am looking for either a variometer seating plate or the dimensions of it so that I can make one up.I know the shape from Wireless for the Warrior vol 2 and I estimate that the dimensions are 6" long,4" wide, with 1" uprights - does that sound about right? Any help or advice would be much appreciated.Thank you. All the best, Kevin.

    ws19 to variometer coax cable

    Hi PT, Thank you for your reply. Thats good to know that Louis Meulstee thinks that RG213U would make an acceptable replacement for the origenal cable.I will bear that in mind. All the best, Kevin.

    ws19 to variometer coax cable

    Hi Paul, Thank you very much for your reply - if you do have a spare one that would be great. All the best. Kevin.
  11. Hi All, ref ws19 -I am needing to make up a coax cable to run from the 'A' set aerial socket to the variometer.From 'Wireless for the Warrior' I understand that the coax should be of 80 ohm impedance - I can find 50 ohm easily but not 80 ohm.What coax cable should I use? I understand that the length should be 42" - is this critical or is the length more to do with where the variometer is situated within the ws19 set up? Sorry if this sounds a silly question but I am new to military radios so any help/advice that you can give would be much appreciated. Thank you. Kevin.
  12. Hi Guys, I am looking for a 6/6 pin dog bone to complete my ws19 - does anyone have a spare one by any chance please?Thank you. All the best, Kevin

    Wanted - WS19 6 pin plug

    Hi PT, Thanks for that information - I had looked before but the ones that I saw were all 12 pin and not six - I will however keep checking ebay for new additions.Thanks again. All the best, Kevin.
  14. Hi, I have recently obtained a WS19 mk2 which does not have the power cable ( from battery to PSU) and am now looking for either a complete power cable or the 6 pin plug that connects to the PSU. Would anyone happen to have a spare one by any chance? All the best, Kevin.

    Tiny Tim battery charger

    Hi Dean, I have 3 Tiny Tims in running order with a 4th that I am currently restoring.They are all 12v 300watts, I believe that some were also made as 24v units.There are several videos of these units on Youtube which might help you,also there are entries on an American forum -Smokstak - which are useful. Thay were made by Continental Motors corp,Muskegon,Mich.,USA. I have been advised that they were used as auxillary engines in Allied tanks during WW2 to charge up the main engine batteries and to power the radios. There are various 'manuals' about which give basic information . Hope that helps you a little. All the best, Kev.
