Marconi Sabre Development radar station

Recommended Posts

I was given a complete trailer mounted radar station by BAE (formerly Marconi) in Chelmsford. It consists of a 20x20 waveguide antenna, roof mounted, a 6' high 19" cabinet full of cards, a microwave transmitter unit, lots of power supplies, panels,  cables, 2 computers (old 286?) with various software and years of hand-written notes on the development and test results. Was used up to the early 90's. Trailer was WW2 but now scrapped.

I have to find a home for it all or the lot will end up going for scrap( at least 200kg aluminium !)

RAF museum weren't interested, they do don't have space or facilities to restore.

Trailer was an A.A. No3 Mk2 or GL3, I have a complete one from 1943 nearing restoration completion, mechanically and electronically.
