Vintage and Rare Tubes

A piece of history

A few years back we bought a large collection of WW2 tubes. Among many rare items were tubes from the very first radar systems the Allied Forces used during WW2. Few pieces each of REL1 and REL5. To call these rare does not do justice to the word “rare”. Only few examples have survived the war.

Own a historical piece

While the REL1 were used as transmitting tubes in fighter planes, the REL5 was a integral part of the Chain Home Low radar system that protected Great Britain. Should you want to own one of these historic pieces, please feel free to hand in an offer.
