The Wireless Set No. 19 Photo Gallery
Submit YOUR photos! Please include a short narrative and remember, pictures are MUCH more attractive if they have a PERSON in them. So, put yourself in FRONT of the camera, please. If you don't have access to a scanner, you can mail me the picture, which I will scan and return to you. (Email me for the mailing address.) However, if you do your own scanning, please keep the finished product under 20K in size. Thanks much! -Bob.
THE SPANISH CONNECTION: Eduard Selma (Edward), EA3BTL, submitted these photos from 1966, showing a W.S. No. 19 Mk II, in service by the military government at Tarragona, Spain. The dynamotor (PSU) was removed and an external power supply attached, visible at right, on the table. The aerial was fed via a tuned antenna coupler (on the wall, above the "ugly lamp") made by then-Corporal Selma, (aka "Corporal Aerial"). A speaker with 500/3 transformer replaced the headphones. Two keys and a lateral "Maniplex" keyer are also shown but difficult to see in the photo. Edward reports this was a fixed station, used for daylight QSOs of about 100 km!
EA3BTL, then-Corporal Eduard Selma, at the controls of the Mk II in 1966. The large box at right on the table and behind the books is the campaign case for the whole rig. Edward reports that as a lot of space was available in the box, it served double duty as a cupboard for drinks (very good wines in Tarragona!). Note the callsign, ANF-5. He also used ANF-1. (WONDERFUL submission, Edward. Thank you very much! - Bob)
