(Louis Meulstee's web site)
Apparently "hidden" in the Wireless for the Warrior web site you will find pages of which some have not a direct connection with the main topic of the site:
the technical history and development of British Army radio communication.
Some of these pages were added during the time primarily because I like the subject, others were just part of the general information on Volume 1 and 2.
Neatly put together, you will find these pages along with a brief explanation what to expect.
Obviously, time permitting, more pages will follow.
- Radio and Television in boy's books Dutch language!
In children's books in the period 1920 to the 1960s, the main subject was often radio and television.
In this section are depicted a small selection of Dutch boy's books which have one thing in common: they are thrilling and still most enjoyable to read!
- Mobile Radio
Mobile Radio in the Netherlands is a brief description of the history of the company section I work for.
KPN Telecom has a long standing reputation in the field of mobile radio communication and is still one of the leaders in this field.
Only the period from the pre-war start to the mid 1980s is dealt with, and no attempt is made to describe later periods of modern GSM and other systems.
In this section is posted the history, technical description and operational use of the Fullerphone, a unique and not very common known DC Morse line telegraph set.
Explained is how this simple, but ingenious little set solved the problems of overhearing and enabled communication through long and leaky field lines.
- Gibson Girl
The evolution of Air-Sea rescue transmitters
with many pictures, circuit diagrams and technical data. Part 3, Post-War VHF and UHF systems, is now posted!
- Russian BC-221
Some time ago a USSR CH4-1 frequency meter set was examined and compared with its USA predecessor, the BC-211, part of SCR-221.
See how the Russians followed very closely the USA design of 1942. More Russian radios are posted in the Gallery.
- H.A.C. Short-Wave Products kits
In most of the leading British radio magazines, notably Practical Wireless,
'H.A.C.' Short-Wave Products ('H.A.C.' = Hear All Continents) advertised up to the early 1980s
with simple shortwave receiver kits.
