20 Feb Former Operators of the MURPHY B41 & B40 Communications Receivers on Oberon’s, Skimmers and Land Bases
Mike Charteris here, former EW.
This is my first post on the RANCBA.
I served aboard HMAS PERTH D38 under, Cheif EW Gary Moon.
Our Destroyer was then commanded by Captain Russell Shalders, a good man and a great captain.
In my spare time I collect and restore Valve Communications Receivers used by the Navy & Military.
I have been an Amateur Radio operator for the past 35 years, and was so when I served in the RAN.
As such I have recently acquired a set of MURPHY B41 & B40 Receivers, which were made in England in the 1950’s.
Its great fun to restore such mamoth Receivers that were used to safeguard the Nation.
But I would really love to know a little about what the people thought who operated them in the R.A.N.
Thus I was hoping that some of the Forum members might well have used this equipment in the past at sea and ashore.
I would very much like to hear from you, be it by way of the forum.
Or direct to my email address of email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you
