Thought you might have noticed the C11 Set not the chairs...September 1964 bullsh1t photo showing 15 year old Nigs joining the Royal Signals...told to "twiddle the knobs"...

I was told to twiddle the knobs once. C50 I think? Never did see that photo! Noisy set the C11, especially on transmit. D11 was the beast although I never saw one outside of Catterick.

Despite the photo...guess two chairs meant two students per C11...never did any radio training being an ED (educated driver) and played with B vehicles, cranes and generators up to 62.5 kva until my departure in 1973...no Sapper signals training either but was able to operate a C42 in BAOR a good bit of kit...

What physical size was a 62.5 kva?

We were NOT students just Nigs a couple a weeks into Junior Squadron at Denbury Sep 64...note the haircut...

The 62.5 kva was the size of a short wheel base Ford Transit and came out of war reserve from 325 Engr Park Antrim...no books supplied the biggest in training was 27.5 kva...it was moved to the Nicker Factory in Lurgan mid 1972 (3 Inf Bde Sig Sqn) to replace a 6 kva that was clearly not up to the job...at the time the Royal Signals called us Combat Powermen ugh...being an "educated driver" worked out the donkey engine on top was needed to start the beast via a clutch...the rest is history...

Oh A REPERFORATOR!! A machine for punching a duplicate perforated paper tape of incoming messages so that they may later be retransmitted and is used for automatic typesetting.



How did it work? Laughing

Some of the kit in that list belongs to the "Bruin" system, C70,C50,R236. Best laugh is the D11 with 350 watts of SSB listed as good for 60 miles, if you knew any antenna theory and had some wire you'd work the world with that kit.

About the only one I recognise is the T100. Actually Jim it is Morse not Morse code. Nothing code about it, just another language.
