Type T1083 Transmitter & R1082 Receiver

Date of Design 1 9 2 9
Frequency Range 6250 - 25000 kc/s 136-500 kc/s & 1.5-15 Mc/s 6250 - 25000 kc/s111 kc/s - 15 Mc/s.  However, if used as a transportable, the range is reduced to 1.5-10 Mc/s :  1.5-12.2 Mc/s transmitter : receiver respectively.
Power Supply 1.5 kW Rotary Converter HT for the transmitter is obtained from a 80 Watt battery driven motor generator. In the emergency fit a generator is driven from a 24V supply containing battery outfit BBE. For transportable use, a generator is driven from a 12V source. A small petrol driven generator is provided for charging the batteries.
Type of Set Valve
Wave Form  Valvedesigned to transmit on CW, ICW and R/T, when ship fitted, it usually emits a CW only signal although stores are available to include ICW also.
Method of Producing Oscillations  Selfis Mater Oscillator Controlled whereas the Selfis a "straight" or TRF {Tuned Radio Frequency}receiver,  i.e., one without heterodyning. 
Where used/fitted. Type 2  is an RAF outfit designed for aircraft, but replaced by more modern equipment, and relegated for Naval use as either {a} the emergency set fitted aft in Destroyers, or {b}, a transportable set for use by Naval landing parties. This Naval use occurred during WW2.
