    Many thanks, Andy.

    A plethora (good word that) of links to follow up and I have tried quite a few so far.

    Best regards,

    Walter,

    There isn't really one specifically about this as such. However, I have researched this subject for a while. Can I help try and answer a specific query?

    Walter, Hi - and welcome!
    Ian is the Forum's Radar Expert. I think that (in common with many of the "Experts" on the Forum) if he don't know the answer then he is more likely than any other to know who does!

    Hi Walter
    Look at http://www.radarworld.org/radarwar.pdf. It is a German article translated into English and covers more than you are looking for but there is good info on UK Radars as well as many German counterparts. It is a kind of Chronological history of Radar developement in WW2 both Ground and Airborne
    Regards
    Dick

    Default Canadians on Radar

    Not a forum, but Robert Quirk's "Canadians on Radar" pages are an excellent source of info on ground radar operations. Canadians served with RAF radar units in all theatres of war. Many first-person accounts from those who "were there".
