In the early days, nothing was 'mass
produced', at Whaddon Hall (Whaddon, Buckinghamshire), in the production
line sense, e.g. the Parasets were handwired by Army Signalmen who came and
went which explains some of the differences to be seen under the panel in
those Parasets. Several thousand Parasets were produced and possibly no two
So the fact that the Paraset were possibly
slightly different, one to another, gives you the opportunity to make your
own variation based on the basic theme of the Paraset.
We don't mind if you don't fit the internal
key but fit a key jack for your favourite morse key.
We don't mind if you band spread it on
one band only.
And, we don't mind if you don't fit a
friction drive and fit RIT instead.
Since they stopped making real ones about
seventy years ago the Paraset was not designed for today's ham
band conditions so the web site shows you some ideas that it is thought
may help make your Paraset hold its own in a crowded ham band.
BTW - We would like a photograph of your
Paraset which we could use on the web site so that it can encourage others
to have a go to make their own replica Paraset.
Above all, have some fun and get YOUR
Paraset on the air ---- Finally please send us some
