About this event

When Allied Prisoners of War returned home after the end of World War Two, some managed to bring back clandestine radios used in the prison camps.These radios had had to be constructed in the utmost secrecy and with considerable ingenuity, for example using capacitors made from scrap and resistors from tree bark! The lecture will describe the construction and operation of some of these radios.
