Perhaps WWII radar receiver?


Recommended Posts

Hello I found this equipment at a thrift store and could not pass on it. The insides are quite valuable as the tubes would run over $1k, but I would like to know what I’ve actually found and am unable to locate the same equipment anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I feel bad for parting a piece which might be one of a kind or has important history. The only writing identifiable is a red “M6” stamp on front and a label which says its been treated with fungus preventative in 1945. Thank you for all your aid!

Not a radar component per se.........it's an oscilloscope used for testing and calibrating radar equipment

 

Manufacturer:    United Cinephone Corporation (USA)
Model:                    TS100/AP, S#604C

Nice late WWII piece of electronic gear.

 

(Salvage Sailor was a 'Scope Dope', a USN Radarman.....)

 

PS - A bit of Naval Trivia - The rating insignia for a USN Radarman (now an Operations Specialist) is an Oscilloscope Blip as seen below

Awesome thank you for your help! I wonder if its worth trying to sell it complete or piece it out since the tubes are quite valuable.
