WW2 1944 American Made British Tank / Armoured Vehicle Wireless Set No. 19 MK II Mobile Radio Transceiver With Correct 1944 Wireless Set No. 19 MK II Aerial Variometer Signal Booster. Sn 15703:45 - 15703:45
The Wireless Set No. 19 was developed in 1940 by the British War Office's Signals Experimental Establishment and by Pye Radio. The Pye model was replaced with the MK II model in 1941. The sets proved valuable for armoured fighting in the Western Desert. In 1942, the No. 19 Mk II was produced in America & Canada by Northern Electric Co, Canadian Marconi Co. and RCA Victor. The British design was improved and interchangeability of components such as the valves, was instituted. A majority of American / Canadian sets used English/Cyrillic front panel lettering, the result of a Lend-Lease contract to the Soviet Red Army. The WW2 mobile radio transceiver was designed for use by Tank / armoured troops of the British Army. The radio provided 3 communication channels: The A set provided longer range communications within the squadron or regiment: The B set or "troop set" provided short range communication between tanks in a troop. The IC channel provided internal communication between crewmembers inside the tank. A rear-link tank in the HQ unit would join its A-set to a wider network, and relay relevant messages to the commander on the B set. This would extend a squadron net to the regiment, or a regimental net to the wider brigade. In normal use the three channels were mixed onto the IC for monitoring. The commander or operator could then select the A or B sets to remove them from the IC and allow push-to-talk. A warning lamp would light if both were on the B set, leaving the A set unmonitored. The other crew members could only use the IC. This is an excellent complete original American made Signal Corps Wireless Set No. 19 MK II. The set has been examined internally and all component parts are present but we have not had it working. It is sold as seen and we cannot give any guarantee regarding functionality. The set has the correct English/Cyrillic front panel lettering and all of its original knobs, dials and gauges. The steel casing is undamaged and without dents. The front of the control panel has a plate with crisp model designation / Manufacturer codes and ‘44’ (1944) date (illustrated). The set measures 17” width x12” depth (including 2 small carry handles on the front panel) x8” height. The steel casing retains all of its original green paint finish. The set is accompanied by its original Aerial Variometer signal booster. The top of the steel canister shaped instrument has an indicator gauge and the case has a plate with crisp model designation / Manufacturer codes and ‘44’ (1944) date (illustrated). The casing is undamaged and retains its original green paint. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15703:45
