Fault: BFO refuses to oscillate.
Problem : the design should have used a 500K resistor.
Factory used a 1Meg resistor,and ageing results in 2Meg.
= 4x spec'; so it doesn't get enough plate voltage.
R1D is hidden in the wax; and is inside "L8A"

|WAAAFS using a 109 set in the field.very early WW2.|
|This view from the 11 Aust manual shows all the small
extras that go with the set - mounting frame + earths etc.
|No11 mounting frame views ahowing at best that the
concept is much the same as the 1936 British 11 frame.
slight differences are being currently looked at.: Brit/Aust.
|Just post ww2 in 1948 The British Army added 62 sets
to the new LandRovers and also this WS19+AFV38 setup
For much clearer info go back to the main page,then to LandRover pix.
|This view of a British No'1' set in England is 1 of very
few left. some related parts are in Australia - Does anyone
have any parts of 1 of these ? I am interested in finding anything for it.

|133 set made by A.W.A. in a Victorian Signals Museum .. Simpson barracks ?|
[more ww2 radio technicians are needed in South Australia- email me - email@example.com ]
Currently my workload is basically 7 days a week, and overloaded. Curently there is room
for about another 10 technical workshops, and Cutomers come in through email, phone, and
letterbox... sending a radio by freight that can be organised quickly by me or another repairer
is often 2/3 or as low as half the price of the standard carrier. Signature delivery and packing
quality are important, with front panel padding extra.
most of the manuals scanned are done in fairly high resolution JPG format.
Very importantly: some internet users are on slow download or restricted data . This is one of the
reasons why my website is favouring the simple single page download. Although some of the files are
PDF, they were not created here. the have just been copied. The files remain online , with temporary
outages only. If you can see where you need to download a page, or just view a page, you can find it
faster from a list. If you wish to download a folder etc, you can get the computer to do it for you.
If you want a great image viewer , try my favourite: ACDSEE32 [32 bit ] that can be used on any
32 bit 1995 ish computer or newer...
pic or 2 by email, or a CD at cost of the plastic+post firstname.lastname@example.org just email me ...
I am not making any money from the scans. I have many manuals available, but due to a lack of time
available, I have not posted a list.so please email me if you are looking for info on an Australian
WW2 Military radio that is fairly well known. I will eventually try to get a copy of every type of
Australian WW2 Military radio scanned. I have unscanned manuals - and I am prepared to scan
them at short notice to get it to you - so send me an email. Maximum delay is about 2 to 3 days.
