Hi Folks,

Still going through the stuff in my late-Father's electronics workshop.

I pulled this one out of one of the boxes:

http://tinypic.com/r/5bu1y8/9

Does anyone know what it is?

Initially I though it was something my father had built himself (mainly due to the home-made cabinet it was in) but now I've taken it out of the cabinet it looks like it has military origins.

Cheers,

Chris

It could be a modified war surplus device. It's got a sweep generator ("wobbulator) so it could probably be used to do TV IF alignment.

Yes, very likely WWII surplus, but what is it exactly?

When it comes to military gear if anyone will know it will be Ray Robinson. His email address is at the foot of this page:

Hi Folks,

For those interested, here's the response I got from Ray:

The USA had an airborne transmitter called the BC-375.
to change bands, they unplugged the coil box.
It had about 6 different coil boxes.

Your equipment is a coil box
that has been modified to be a sweep generator
(wobbulator means sweep generator).

Cheers!

Chris
