- Wireless Set No. 19 Mark II: military double band transceiver used for communications between armoured vehicles and later general use; comes with three functional units in one cabinet: A set (shortwave communications), B set (VHF near range communications), on-board intercom.
A set: AM (1,5 - 2,5 W), MCW and CW (3 - 5 W), covers 2 - 8 MHz in two ranges (2-4,5 / 4,5 - 8 MHz), two mechanical presets.
B set: VHF (telephony, 0,4 W) in the range 229 - 241 MHz.
Pye introduced the W.S. 19 MK I transceiver in 1941, because of the frequency coverage of the A-set appeared to be too narrow, the MK II was introduced in 1942 with a coverage 2,0 to 8 MHz, split in two ranges. Later a special dial knob was introduced for easier tuning, which came with the Wireless Set 19 MK III, but was often mounted on the MK II sets.
