my radio knowledge is zip, however The star in firearms and carriers refers to Canadian design or at least I thought so until recently.
I'm not sure what model or mark you describe the Canadian carrier mount as, Chris, but the prefix of the Ford part number CO1UC 105046 means:
C= Canadian design
0= 1940
1=85 horse power
U.C.= Universal Carrier.
I think the star designates a Canadian design in this mount. I have all of it as original except the big rubber boot. Quite a few copies have made it to the U.K. as a result of my bits.
I havent been able to follow or absorb you description, but that is probably me.

The 'star' isn't Canadian. It's just a British/Commonwealth way of indicating a design change in a piece of military gear that isn't significant enough to warrant a new 'mark'.

Default 11 set on the air

A no. 11 set has been on the air recently. A friend of mine Clem, grew up playing with and fixing old wireless sets he had salvaged from the local tip. He did a PMG radio tech course in the 1960's and eventually he worked at the Telecom research labs in Clayton.

I gave him this 11 set years ago, its been played around with and its now back on the air in somewhat modified form.

That set appears to have hand scribed panel lettering.Most unusual. Was it originally made like that ?
And it's not made by EK Cole either.

Iíve been emailing the seller. He has painted it on himself in an attempted restoration, he should of left it all well alone, shame. Might of been worth a punt in original paint.

What's with this Control Unit A for the 11 set? I've never seen one with this rotary unit. And it's made in the USA!
Or did somebody just mount the transformer in the Control Unit case?

Your second suggestion is correct.

It's a US made dynamotor from a WS19 supply unit fitted in the eviscerated remains of a remote control unit.

Parts only, and only if the dynamotor works.

Chris.

Here's another ebay item. It says for 18 set or 19 set but it's dated 1940. It's a military ohm meter for testing batteries I think.

Oh good grief. £45, really? You can get them for under £5 at radio rallies, usually.

Instrument, Testing, No.1 is a very basic test meter for line telephony and telegraphy use, back in the 1940s. It coexisted (and eventually replaced) the "Detector Q & I" magnetized needle voltage and current detector used on early telegraphy circuits (that was still being manufactured and issued late in WW2).

Q id Quantity (current, I think) and I is Intensity (Voltage), but I may have them backwards.

Anyway; Instrument, Testing No.1 allows voltage and current measurements on field telephone circuits, on-load testing of 'S' and 'X' cells to determine their usability, and approximate low-ish resistance measurements.

For higher voltages (wireless sets) there was the Voltmeter, Pocket, No.2.

There were a couple of less crude and fairly effective military multimeters, plus commercial equipment for higher echelons, and for accurate resistance measurement there was the trusty Post Office Box and a galvanometer, plus dry cell(s) to suit.

Chris.
p.s. there are a couple of others on eBay for less than a quarter of that price, and it's still too much (really) for what they are. (IMAO, YMMV)
