An email circulated years ago with all the air defense listening devices pre-radar. I think they were British.

I remember seeing the top photo with a caption and I think I read about them in a book on WWII history. The ones in the top photo were Japanese to the best of my recollection.

We call them war tubas. The tip is from japan. These were used for locating aircraft in the days just before radar. Some were used in WW1 as well.

Nobody cares that they used Model T wheels?

I thought so! They last pic looks a bit like 21" balloon tire wheels. The first 2 pics look like clinchers. But I defer to those better at identifying T parts!

I do find it odd that the Japanese used T wheels.Would they have ordered them from a US supplyer? I must admit this is the first time I ever saw 1 of these devices. Thanks Ricks for posting.
