The WW2 Radio Shack
« on: April 18, 2019, 1714 UTC »
For those who are interested, I have added some updates concerning the secret WW2 radio shack, follow the menus for various pages.

The URL is https://sites.google.com/view/ww2secretradiostation
I am moving to the farm on a permanent basis in about 3 months, and progress will then be quicker...
The book "The Key Messenger" is progressing well. It is amazing what one can dig out about stay behind organisations (SBO's) today.
Anyway, have a look, I have started to add some download pages as well, and these will be updated with photos of receivers, transmitters, circuits, manuals etc.

This is really cool!
I wish you best of luck with your adventures in restoring such a site, and I look forward to reading your book.
In another life, I could have been a telephone engineer.

I love the history of radio spying and alike. From one time pads to numeric code and huge bulky equipment all in a single base station with bulletproof walls and the smell of old electronics. Cold and dark, hidden in the middle of nowhere. Thatís what my kind of radio shack eventually will be looking like. Inspiration is all around when just digging into it. :)

Short updates on the project at https://sites.google.com/view/ww2secretradiostation/refurbishment and

I have added some high resolution images of the MK214D transmitter used by the Diplomatic Wireless Service in the 1960's.
