Wireless Set No 18 Transceiver WS 18 Transmitter Receiver

The Wireless Set No.l8. was designed for short range telephony and CW. working in forward areas, and was primarily intended for use between Battalion HQ and Company HQ.
It could be used as a ground station for working in the open or from cover, and as a man carried back set for working on the march.
The set is entirely self contained in one unit containing Sender, Receiver and Batteries.

The set covers a frequency band of 6 mc/s—9 mc/s (50 metres—33,3 metre.) in a single range.
This band normally provides a minimum of about eighteen channels of communication outside the Army band, ie above 7500 kc/s, and also gives an overlap into the Army band to permit working with “wireless Sets No.1 and No. 11.

A sectional rod aerial is packed with the sat and may be erected on the set to give a self-supporting aeria1 up to 10 feet high.
Other forms of aerial which may be used with the set are given below.

The ground aerial consists of a length of insulated wire connected to the aerial of the set at one end and thrown out along the ground.
It is intended for working from trenches and other forms of cover where a vertical rod aerial would be too conspicuous.
In certain circumstances the ground aerial may he used as an elevated extension to the rod aerial.

For long range working half or quarter wave horizontal serials may be used.
They may be either end—fed half or quarter wave aerials or “Wyndom” aerials.
For working into the Army band i.e. below 7.5 mc/s and Aerial Horizontal  End—Fed or an aerial Horizontal C. as used with “Wireless Sets No.11, may be used.

The signal frequency of the sender is generated by a master oscillator circuit followed by a single power amplifier.
The aerial is auto—coupled to the power amplifier by aerial taps to a parallel tuned output circuit.
There are thus three tuning controls the ‘M.O. TUNING”, ‘AERIAL TUNING,’ and “AE SWITCH.”

By means of the netting ,device a group of “Wireless Sets No.18 may be tuned to One frequency simultaneously, the frequency chosen being radiated in the first instance as a signal by a central control station.
Any set may than communicate with any other set in the group or with the control station.
Such a group is termed a’ net” and the process of tuning the sets in the net to a common frequency, “netting”.
The netting device used in the Wireless Set No.18. consist. of a plunger switch by which the master oscillator valve of the sender may be switched on while the set is in the receiving condition.’
When netting, the master oscillator frequency is adjusted so that a beat note is heard between the master oscillator and the incoming signal.
“When the beat note is set to zero, the frequency of the master oscillator is the same as that of the incoming signal.

Modulation takes place on the control grid of the power amplifier valve and is set to give full modulation of the carrier at a normal loud voice level.
No adjustment for depth of modulation is provided.

Changing over from send ‘to receive is performed by the pressel switch of the microphone.
There is no change—over switch on the panel of the set.

For the purpose of C.W. transmission a close—circuit jack is connected in the H.T. supply to the P.A. valve and a Key is connected by means of Key and Plug Assembly No. 8. for C.W. operation.
The above Key embodies the send—receive switch and is connected to the filament supplies of sender and receiver.
