WHERE USED/FITTED

Type 37S is a medium power valve set arranged on many panels. In some cases, where H/F Panel 3KS has not been fitted, but the set has been modified to receive this panel, it is known as a TYPE 37A. Where no modification has been made, the set is known as a TYPE 37 and the panel, a Type 3K. TYPES 37, 37A and 37S are fitted in the Main W/T Offices of DESTROYERS and SLOOPS and in Second W/T Offices of modern classes of BATTLESHIPS and CRUISERS (1930's).

NOTES.

The Type 37S was widely fitted throughout the Fleets. It comprised of four parts, with three parts being VALVES and the other SPARK. The dates of design started in 1924 and finished in 1930 so the overall set can be considered as a 1930 transmitter.
