    Collection mostly, it's my 'mission' to get all the sets used by the Canadian army in WW2 (save for the 1000 pound monsters the size of refrigerators). I'm almost there save for a couple of the more obscure ones.

    I usually try to fire them up and have been successful, though with 75 year old wartime paper capaciters that weren't supposed to last even close to that long sometimes it's touch and go.

    Here's a couple that did fire up:

    I had a vet friend of mine who was a signals guy with the Irish Regiment O Canada. He used to tinker with many of the sets post war. Unfortunately, he tossed them to an electronics repurposer years ago.

    Needless to say, I was shocked when I went into his basement and they were all gone. Honestly, radios are above my knowledge base but dang I would have loved to have gotten a hold of one of the 19 sets and 18 sets.
