Default The R1155 Royal Air Force Receiver.

The manual for the R1155 Receiver can be downloaded from The Vintage and Military Amateur Radio Society (VMARS) website here:-

Jones Plugs and Sockets for the R1155 can be obtained from Farnell. Go to their website:-
and do a parts search using the word "jones" The plugs/sockets needed are those in the 2400 series. Note that Farnell do not stock the "correct" "U" shaped shrouds/cable clamps as originally used with the R1155.

Some other spare parts including the correct shrouds/cable clamps should be available from this website:-

There are numerous webpages relating to the R1155 including those at Ray Robinson's virtual museum:-

those on Martin Swift's website:-

and Peter Tranter's Website:-

Many R1155 owners seem to have problems with the slow motion drive. Another thread:-
relating to this can be found in this section.

Information on mods to the R1155 including the construction of a PSU can be found on the Vintage Radio and Electronics site:-
