  Information on Lakeland amateur radio kits.
  The makers of a popular Battle of Britain wargame called "The Burning Blue" have posted some of their research into the game; some outstanding interviews of Spitfire and Hurricane veterans with details of the use of the T.R.9D HF transceivers and the change-over to the T.R.1133 VHF, which birthed the SCR-522.
The T.R.9- series of HF radios were the British equivalent of the U.S. SCR-183. First installed in 1932, they were a great improvement over earlier sets and saw long, successful service in the relatively radio-quiet 1930s. However, by 1940 the HF environment had changed and the T.R.9D could not keep up. They were retired as the VHF sets became available.
