    Default Unknown RAF/RCAF aircraft instrument

    Hi all, I would like to ask if anyone would be able to identify the instrument on the photo?
    I have found it on the photo of an Yale aircraft used for the training of Wireless Operators in Canada.



    TIA

    Pavel/Franek,
    I would go along with it being some sort of radio/direction indicating kit. Immediately behind it, and to the right, is what looks suspiciously like the bottom left corner of a T 1154. Below that I think I can make out the top left corner of a R 1155? Some versions of the R 1155 had an H/F direction indicator built in. The R 1155 I had (ex-Valetta Canal Zone prang!) had one, but I could never make it 'do' anything. This bit of kit may be replicated at http://pa0pzd.com/airforce/general-a...raf-lancaster/ and may be an early/experimental RMI NDB indicator? You need an expert in the art of The Wiggly Amps to pronounce!

    Hi Franek and Peter, my thoughts are identical but I was trying to google out the same one to be sure but no luck.
    Peter you are right, there is set T1154/R1155 behind.
