worked there. He described Bartle's relationship to MIT as being responsible for the scientific research, with MIT responsible for the engineering. This work is not mentioned in Dr. Brown's recent book on radar. I

Comment: T 84 fitter at Staxton Wold, 1985-88. Worked on 3rd line repair of T 84. I have still got training notes from T84 Q course, is that sad?!! Superb site, slight addition to T84 page with referance to signal breakthrough on TV channels. In Neatishead a second harmonic filter was fitted in the waveguide on the ceiling, this prevented Anglia TV from being interfered with! Keep up the site. signed JAFAD (some of you know what that means!!)

Comment: Nice page and really interesting. I am myself making research on Swedish radar ("eko-radio = echo-radio)development during WW II: In 1944 15 Swedish produced radars sets was in use by the Navy in 10 ships and the others on coastal stations, together with the first 5 to 20 AMES Mk 6 sets bought summer 1944 from United Kingdom and the first 25 Würzburg sets bought in spring 1944 from Germany. I am happy to see that interest in radar research have been developing the last years.
