Military radio transceiver

Today’s object is a Military radio transceiver. The Mk II was a development of the Mk I and its design is generally attributed to J Orbell of Radio Ltd. The significant differences between the two are as follows:   The Mk II is dual band having an LF band of 2-4 MHz and an HF band of 4-8 MHz; A synchronous vibrator was used dispensing with the need for the two 6X5 rectifiers; The switchable HT voltage feature was dispensed with.  Generally the ZC1 Mk II completed its service life without further change.
