Default Re: Servicing 'Secret Listeners' radios in the 2nd World War

Hi All,

I've no information on VIs being supplied with test gear but early in the war amateurs were asked to loan or give meters (and possibly other test gear) to the military to aid the war effort.

The only place I've heard of this was in an editorial article by G8ON in the RSGB Bulletin of August 1942 which discusses what would happen to surplus radio gear post-war and whether amateurs would get preferential rates when such equipment was sold off, which in fact did happen. No doubt a search of earlier editions of "The Bull" will find the actual appeal for equipment.

Hope this is of interest,
