    Default Wellington equipment ARI 5033 and R 3003 1

    Hi,

    on the loss card of Wellington X3814 is the following equipment mentioned:

    ARI 5033

    R 3003 1

    Can anybody tell me a bit about what these have been used for? Uptil now I have found different information on the web, so I would like to be sure.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best

    Marcel, Hi,

    What you want is in http://home.btconnect.com/gmb/ari.htm. You might have to do a bit searching/scrolling, but I think you will find it!

    Hi Peter,

    thanks for the link.

    So ARI 5033 was a radio navigation equipment (Gee MK 1).

    In the list R3003 is a part of an IFF device. In the lost card a R3003 1 is mentioned. Can I assume that it is also part of an IFF device or could it be a part of another device?

    Marcel,
    I do not know the answer - but Ian Brown (the radar expert) might know, if he on the circuit. If Air Min was using the same system of numbering that I was used to then some of my Tactical Ground Radio Installations (Air Transportable) - TGRI(AT) - would be TGRI(AT) xxxxxx in their original state. If they were modified (some item changed, etc) then they became TGRI(AT) xxxxxx/1. If modified a second time, they became TGRI(AT) xxxxxx/2 - and so on. I suspect that the R3003 was the original version, and the R3003/1 was a modified version - but I can not be certain!
