The #19 set has an 18 watt input and operates between 2 and 8 MHz. This HF portion was called the 'A' set. If used with an 8 foot whip on a vehicle, it had a typical range of 10 miles.  An auxiliary radio called the 'B' set operated in the 230-240 MHz band and provided communications up to a 1,000 yards between vehicles.

Aditional information on the No. 19 set can be found on pages 39 thru 44 of the Signals Production Branch document dated October 15, 1943.

Canadian Marconi and RCA Victor commenced production of Mark 3 version of the famous No, 19 set in   May, 1943. This example belongs to David Lawrence VA3ORP. The speaker is not native to the 19 set. It is just there so the public can hear the audio during the demonstration .  (Photo by Jerry Proc)
