I see I'm the first to post here, or so it seems. I picked up an old Army Signal Corp transmitter system. I believe I have a transmitter and receiver but not sure just what I have.

It's in great shape and looks to be all there exept for an antenna.

The small box is a "RM-42"
The large (heavy) box is marked "CY-52/TRC-8

I have several good pictures on photobucket and hope someone can put me on the right track to find some info.
The photos are here:
Rectifier power unit: PP-115A
Radio Transmitter:T30A/ TRC-8
Control Unit: RM-42

What is it? What can I do with it and How? Smile

Thanks,
Rev

G'day Rev,

You can either post links to your Photobucket pics using the Image Link tags or e-mail them to me at Brad.mail.vintage-radio.com.au and I will embed them in your post. Wink

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
