Radio vehicles?

Recommended Posts

Found this picture af abandonned french army vehicles in 1940. What could be the pylons on the Citroen halftracks? Radio antennas? But they look a bit after thought adaptions. And weren't radio vehicles closed usually? What do you think.

Radio vehicles didn't have to be closed.  The length of an ariel is a ratio of the frequency used. normaly 1/4 , 1/2 or full length. So for some frequencys that can end up very long, hence you would string them around the poles on the top of the vehicles. Look at the pole on the back of the vehicle on the right, looks like an insulator with cable strung from it. 

Do you know what the wheeled beastie is?
