    Signal lamp batteries

    Hi Guys, Thanks for your informative replies - appreciated. The method of replaceing 'S' batteries is certainly worth considering - although I dont think that I will try to make up repro ones! Yes the lamp is a mkII (2) - should have used the right keys on the keyboard! I can see that L.A.M is the manufacturer, but who are they? Lucas? I would still like to know what exactly is meant by 'short range' - anyone know please? All the best, Kev

    Signal lamp batteries

    Just another thought, what is considered to be 'Short Range' in this context? Half mile?Mile? Any ideas? Thank you. Kev.
  5. I have a 'Lamp Signalling Daylight Short Range Projector MK11 L.A.M.' - It is a morse key signalling lamp. The instruction plate states that the batteries are 8 'S' cells connected in series - presumeably to give 12 volts - I assume that there must be a single 12 volt battery that would do the job nowadays - could anyone kindly let me know what I should use? I was thinking that a small 12v motor bike battery might do? Can anyone let me know what L.A.M. means as shown on the lamp? Thanks. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Kev.

    WS19 loudspeaker system

    Thanks for that link I will drop him an email and see if he can help. Kevin.
  8. 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.
  10. 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.
  13. 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.
