WW2 R1155A RAF Receiver 10D/820 As Used In The Lancaster And Halifax

This amazing looking piece of radio history is a WW2 R1155A RAF Receiver 10D/820 As Used In The Lancaster And Halifax Bombers, and some airborne and ground stations.

They usually were accompanied by the T1154 Transmitter, as shown in the following photograph of a Lancaster Bomber Radio Operator Station.


The working condition of this 1155A (Serial No. 39879 ) has not been verified and the receiver has not been powered.

The only difference between a 1155 and 1155A radio receiver is that filters were added in the 1155A to prevent interference from MF Transmitters. 

  • In very good condition, with a mint front panel with all controls. The steel case has surface blemishes, scratches and dents. 
  • The internal circuits and componentry will need checking and verifying prior to powering. There are two valves missing and the D/F VR102 has been replaced with a metal bodied valve. That said, the receiver presents superbly and is a testament to good storage and cherished ownership over the past 80 years.
  • The dial is brightly coloured and the logging scale is in superb condition.
  • Has an original Type 13 concentric tuning knob
  • Plug locking bar pillars intact   
  • A 4-pin Jones socket has been removed from the front panel and a custom power socket of contemporaneous appearance has been fitted. This should be an easily reversible modification rendering the receiver back to original and near mint appearance (barring the steel case).
  • This receiver must be powered by a floating HT and LT power supply. High voltages are involved. Any attempt to power this 80-year old receiver must only be undertaken subject to our conditions of sale listed in red below.
