When coupled to the R1155 this produces a cardioid pattern. Two out of the three rectangular, steel cased caps were open circuit, so again I had to gut and re-stuff them. The receivers in particular were a popular favourite with hams and shortwave listeners in the period following the war and are still collected by enthusiasts. On the left are the two Bomber Command types, the T1154B & the later T1154M and on the right the High Speed Launch type, the T1154L. weblink
There was evidence of re-aligned and bends in the top of the screening cans suggest that the valves had been out on more than one occasion. Well done. Although I'm a TV man now, I would quite like an R1155 project........ This may have to be adjusted later when the strength of the homing signal changes.
They were then lacquered to prevent rusting. The R.A.F. Note the safety chains to restrain the set should the rubber shockmounts come unstuck from the steel, which some of mine had! Vancouver B.C.
Note top of the mounting brackets at the rear and the red slider switch to the right of the front cover which switches the crystal unit in and out. Although they were used mainly in aircraft, later in the war they were fitted to small boats (N suffix), and also to vehicles (115, 115B, 130, 131). The R1155 and T1154 sets were manufactured by several British radio manufacturers, including EKCO, Marconi, Plessey, and EMI. T1154 Transmitter For Sale Set the loop "athwarthship" (ie to a zero scale reading) and ask the pilot to alter course until the needles intersect on the centre line.
One wiring error was a reversed voltage divider and the other connection of the magic eye to the AF rather than the RF volume control when not on AVC. I have revised the text in a few places, included all the corrections listed below spotted by readers and myself. The VMARS copy of the AP2548A official manual for the T1154 in PDF format.
Electrical restoration involved changing a considerable amount of crumbling, rubber wiring, which apparently is a common problem with these sets.

R1155 Power Supply The last position is a "FIGURE-OF-EIGHT" position (shown on the front panel as the number eight symbol) and this uses the loop aerial only, to determine transmitter direction, the 8 representing Chart 3 - gives a block diagram of the R1155 receiver Chart 4 - contains a simplified circuit of the communications component of the R1155 and Chart 5 - has the Mine came in its original RCAF crate along with a book on the Lancaster bomber.
This page may be out of date. Hi Andy, Yes I did find that website and probably every other resource on the internet, about the R1155 Although many of those websites were helpful, especially for photos, the majority R1155 Radio Receiver For Sale Official colour charts relating to the equipment These charts, published as classified documents by the Air Ministry, show simplified circuits of the equipment and indicate how the various components were connected Marconi R1155 For Sale Posts: 2,238 Re: R1155 receiver Thanks for the replies and thumbs up.
When the aircraft is flying towards the homing signal, the needles cross on the centre line. http://p2pgsm.com/for-sale/1275-a-series-engine-for-sale.html Several companies manufactured them, including Marconi, Ekco, Plessy, Philips, and the Gramophone Co. (EMI). Pete. If it decreases, rotate the loop through 180 degrees and repeat the procedure. R1155 Restoration
None of the circuitry had been removed or modified, all the removable shields were still present and the rubber-insulated wiring was still in quite good condition. I identified each end of a wire, removed it, replaced it with cotton covered wire, and marked it off the circuit diagram. This control makes the cardioid pattern sharper. check over here Page 2 - gives general specifications of the R1155.
This is largely just additional measurements of the HT+ to ground and HT- to ground resistance values that change with different positions of the Master Switch AND Band Switch. R1155a Receiver The case and front have been repainted in view of the amount of missing paint and corrosion. Particularly if it was interesting, unusual or challenging.
From the IF stages, the signal goes to a diode detector and AF amplifier valve. Cheers Brian brianc View Public Profile Find More Posts by brianc Page 1 of 3 1 23 > « Previous Thread | Next Thread » Thread Tools Show Printable Version If the homing signal seems too broad to get an good course, then the METER DEFLECTION switch can be used to make it more accurate by switching between the HIGH and R1154 Transmitter It's a bit rough but nothing like the image you have benefited from.
Fold the edge over this material to 180 degrees. Several round cans with 3 x .01 caps in them that always need changing plus a few individual .01s. Sadly, upon seeing the picture, it is not what I thought it may be. http://p2pgsm.com/for-sale/homes-for-sale-in-vista-ca-92084.html Page 20, Page 21, Page 22, Page 23 - these pages list the components, showing circuit refs and their values.
