MCR1 Coil Pack – Range 2
Original SOE/Resistance MCR1 coil-pack (frequency coversion) for receiver. Range 2
During WW2 the MCR-1 became a popular receiver with resistance groups in several European countries. It was built under licence by Philco in the UK, and many were dropped over occupied Europe for the reception of the ‘civil’ broadcasts of the BBC that carried the latest news in various languages, speeches of the British Prime Minister and other heads of states and often coded messages for the resistance (e.g. to confirm the arrival of a VIP or an upcoming dropping). The receiver was also used as part of complete radio stations, such as the Type 46/1 (Jedburgh Set) and the Type 48/1 (Nicholls Set). Production of the receiver started in late 1943.
