I recently had an interesting visit to the
Daventry museum. It is
a general museum about the town and it includes a number of items
from the famous transmitting station. The objects in the
museum are very well presented and I recommend a visit if you are
in the area. One of the most interesting objects is a BBC
built re-broadcast receiver made in 1928 to receive 5XX from
Daventry (long wave). It has the equipment code R5X/3/3.
The original long wave rebroadcast experiments were carried out
when 5XX was at Chelmsford and
this Wireless World article from 30th July 1924 gives some
relevant information (page 152 of the PDF file). If you can
provide any more information about the R5X/3/3 please contact me.
