Nice photos - alas I have no history attached to the radios I just got.

Do you have any idea if the headset socket on the Sweetheart was used for anything else (plug likewise)?

It's a quandry though - without knowing what the history of the set is, there's no way of knowing if the modification was a field mod, or post war vandal.

Which Museum are you referring to?

Cheers

Tim

As far as I know Tim the headset socket and plug were used for nothing else. It is possible the modification was done during the war, but could well have been done much later. The Museum I mention is at RAF Harrington, the website is www.harringtonmuseum.org.uk All the best, Clive.

Interesting thread full of nice sets!
I have a few questions regarding the MCR-1.
Do you have any idea where to get (if possible out of E-pay) some MCR coils a rare power pack and which headphones could be properly used with MCR-1?
And the price estimates?

And does exist some list of the serial numbers of MCR-1 where the date of production can be found?

And my last one - anybody tried to make a repro antenna?

I'd be glad for any help.
Thanks!
Martin

Hi
Came over this thread while looking for info about MCR1.
Being in Norway, have a little info about the Sweetheart Earphones / connectors.
They are from American hearing aids. They show up on Ebay now and again.
Look for Brush (who made the ones for the Sweetheart) or Aurex which are the same type.

All the best

Cheers everyone!

I am thinking about selling my ex Bletchley park museum MCR1.
Anyone here interested?
