Finished! Visible in this photograph and salvaged from other R1155s … V1, V2 and associated bases and screening cans … V9 (the extremely rare VR102) …  L23, which is actually a transformer … and not forgetting three tall tubular capacitors.

Re-building R1155E Ser. 69428 page 3

Visible in this photograph and salvaged from other R1155s … L24, which is actually two wave wound inductors in series … the entire Jones Panel assembly and the aluminium Coil-Box lid (because I didn’t have a steel one available). The Jones Panel pillars were obtained via Ebay.

The completed R1155E Ser. 69428.


What’s next? … R1155L Ser. 0138. Since the ‘L’ was designed for use by aircraft of Coastal Command, it covers a different frequency range. This receiver will take longer to strip down because I will have to write out a new wiring schedule for the coil-box.
