FREE GIVE AWAY - WW2 era UHF signal generator
Warren Lane has a signal generator to give away. He can no longer house it, so now it is a giveaway to anyone interested.

Unfortunately, if a home is not found for it, Warren says it will sadly be dismantled for scrap with only a few components retained. For your information, the unit weighs almost 28kg. (Click here to see photos of the signal generator, and for Warren's contact details.)
Warren's contact details are available from the link above.
