I've got a 1942 ARRL handbook that was put out for troops getting prepped for war after Pearl Harbor. A lot of the transmitters could get today's pirates in a world of trouble. Some of the receivers look pretty interesting, though. Everything from crystal sets to superhets.

I suspect the ARRL would have it in their online archives.

That's it. I bought mine at an estate sale. There must have been a pile of 20 of them. The odd thing was there was nothing else radio related in the house.
