WW2 Era U.S. Army Signal Corps / USAAF Survival Radio Antenna Kite M-277-A By Bendix Aviation Ltd North Hollywood California With Original Transit Tube. Sn 16061 - 16061
Radio antenna kites are used to carry a radio antenna aloft, higher than is practical with a mast. They are most often associated with portable radio systems, usually with pre-World War I field equipment, and were also occasionally used to increase radio range on Naval ships. The use of kite supported antennae was limited because of difficulty in maintaining consistent antenna height, unpredictability of the wind, and improvements in radio antenna, transmission, and reception. During World War II and after they were used in conjunction with survival radios issued to aircraft flying over-water missions. The U.S the Army Signal Corps Kite M-277-A is a collapsible box kite to raise the antenna of a radio set. The 17 x 17 x 36 inch frame of the M-277-A is made up of 4 aluminium rods, each rod end was attached at the ends by a hinge to 4 shorter rods, and each of these met in the middle, attached by a locking mechanism, so that the whole thing could be opened up like an umbrella. The yellow cloth was treated with water repellent. It was designed to be simple to assemble, and could fly in winds from 7 to 40 miles per hour. It packs into a cardboard transit tube, on which is also printed assembly instructions and designation plate. Our example is in near mint and un-issued condition. All fabric and the aluminium frame is clean undamaged and functions as it should. The material has wind guide markings and the frame has line clips. The kite comes with its original transit tube with removable lid. The tube has the correct illustrated instructions for use label and U.S Army Signal Corps designation plate which has Bendix Aviation manufacturer detail (all illustrated).
