Naval Radio Vans (Mobiles) Part One    Naval Radio Vans (Mobiles) Part Two

Before, and during WW2, the Royal Navy had a COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM which could be formed from five different STATIONS known as:-

a. Station YY
b. Handcart
c. Central Receiving Room (CRR).
d. Transmitter Van (TxV).
e. Station Z.

These were the names given to types of VHF STATIONS

VHF frequencies had been in use by the commercial world long before the Royal Navy started to use them, and what follows are files made up from one of the very first handbooks issued by the Admiralty. There are many interesting topics including VHF propagation, VHF fading, VHF interference, VHF aerials and polarisation, VHF polar diagrams, pictures and line drawings.
