I first heard of a 'Paraset'
when I saw a message on the QRP-L
reflector announcing an upcoming 'June 6th Paraset D-Day
' activity. A search for more information soon revealed that the Paraset was a small vacuum-tube transmitter-receiver unit built during WWII in the UK at the Whaddon Hall
headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service Communications Unit. Known officially as the 'Whaddon Mark VII
', the units were either air-dropped by parachute or carried, by the jumpers themselves, into many of the occupied countries of western Europe. . .
