Ben arrived with a selection of ‘suitcase’ sets and other radios from wartime clandestine use. On display were the B2, a Wadden MK7 Paraset, a Type A Marconi MK3, a German S90/E90 along with it’s almost perfect copy, the Italian 1943 set of German design. Also shown was the OSS SSTR1 1942 American made set similar in appearance to the B2.
Ben showed no lack of enthusiasm in describing how each was designed and operated along with some stories of their use during wartime.
The equipment was only a very small part of his collection of nearly 850 sets from around the world now on show at the Military Wireless Museum in Kidderminster. (http://www.qsl.net/g4bxd/introduction.htm)
