Nice find Ron, if you see anymore I'm looking for one.

Anyone got an internal fitting for the two pin power supply socket, mines been modified as you can see.

You might get lucky if you look at vintage electric kettles or similar items . I've seen some power plugs/connectors on old electric kettles that will fit the 11 set Aust. power pins . I assume the British had the same type of power connectors ?

Thanks for the tip Mike, English and Canadian sets use the same plugs. On another note I'm looking for a remote control unit "A" for my Austalian 11 set if anyone got one to trade or sell.

I'm guessing that it's the same connector as was used on the R107 receiver for AC Mains input. (Also the RF Amplifier No.2 for he WS19, though in that case for 12V, and was also used on some test equipment for inserting an ammeter to measure the supply current.)

If so, they should be easier to come by than the "domino" connectors as they were still in use in the 1960s!

Chris.

Blimey! I'm glad I bought a lot of this stuff when I did as I just couldn't justify the cost nowadays. I regret not buying a deac Lewis gun which I thought was too expensive at 1000. Last ones I saw a few years back where 7-8 Grand. Ron

700 GBP is a completely insane price for that lot! Admittedly the 32-ft mast kit seemed to be complete and unissued, but I sold one of mine (complete apart from the hammer and spare staytighteners) last month for 50 GBP.

That mast was for the WS62 (with the 14-ft sectional whip and connecting cable) plus a mixed bag of 'F' rods (including a few of the 'battle aerials' for WS38 Mk.2) and tubular case.

Obviously a couple of bidders with lots of money and a determination to have it regardless of cost.

Chris.

Default set

Morwell is not far from me but that's too rich a price for me. The lid/seat is missing . Will be interesting to see how much it goes for. I've written this opinion a few times but worth repeating. The Aust. sets were not the best quality , AWA used their typical crappy paper capacitors and poor quality resistors and the next to useless cotton insulation ( ideal for the damp tropic climates ..not ) . After the war at least one surplus dealer was offering AWA 11 sets converted to xtal control , which was a more practical conversion.

The genemotors: extremely poor quality castings made from some kind of rubbish metal that shrinks/expands and cracks while you are looking at it . Super glue is your best friend here.

As a receiver moderate to terrible as a transmitter oh my god don't even think about it unless you rebuild the whole set - fitted with modern good quality components

Check it didn't get relisted - I saw a WS38 "sell" for around 900 in the last week or two... only to then see it immediately relisted.

I suspect some fraudulent bidding is pushing up the prices in the hope they snare an unsuspecting bidder who does not know the market.

That said... if a genuine sale... I have a set I'll let go for that money.

Tim

Mike.

How were contracts awarded in Australia during the war. Were companies assigned them by a government agency, or were they bid on?

Not sure . Maybe somebody else will know ?

AWA history here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalga...s_(Australasia)

As always with WIKI , the information is not to be believed until its been double checked . I have found a few WIKI blunders .

He didn't get any bids so it's relisted. Same price though.

I recall buying three of them for 50 bucks each , would have been 1990. Not as complete as that set just sold but the power supplies were in the deal. Included in the same deal were three British 22 sets with power supplies , ah the good old days ! I paid 100 bucks in the mid 90's for a B2 spy suitcase set , I had 3 of these sets at one time, one sold recently for 5k$ , madness if you ask me. I ran out of space and the sets in my collection were deteriorating from dampness , wardrobes stuffed full of stuff, under the house, whats the point, we cannot take it with us to the grave.

A chap in NSW had shipping containers jammed full of this stuff, he died, the wife had to deal with it all, the vultures came out of course.Found the story here http://www.portabletubes.co.uk/sitefiles/colin.htm
