    • Well, Google's 'advertising optimization' has now become so distracting as to trick people into visiting other sites. So I have removed advertising until I can find a better solution. One option may be sponsorship, anyone interested?




Here is my little contribution to this nice & great lot of technical
information. It's the operating manual of the R 209 MK II receiver. This is
a rather compact vehicular shortwave communication receiver of British
origin. There are in total 3 versions of this radio : the R 209, the R 209
MK II and the R 209/2/B. The main differences between these 3 models are
mainly due to changes in power supply design (allowing for different power
sources : 6-12-24VDC and/or 120-240 VAC).

The first models were developed at the end of WW2 and the ones from later
production remained in use until the early seventies.

This manual is for the R 209 MK II receiver (around 1950) and comes from
M.B.L.E., Brussels (Belgium) which produced several units of the 'MK II' and
'/2/B' series.

Best regards,

Laurent Cormeau.
