Hi..... welcome to my vintage RACAL pages.
I have dedicated it to some of the superb equipment made by this company into the 1970's and 1980's.I have aimed this site at those who would like to know more about the many variations of equipment the RACAL have made during this period.The list is by no means complete and never will be,but I will do my best to update it as and when I can.You may need to be patient while the pictures download, but I think you will find it worth the wait. I have not "Thumbnailed" the images as I know that many of you like to save the pages as they are, with full size images.I have also reduced the resolution of some of the images to save space on the server and reduce download time.
All the information on this site is offered in good faith. I cannot be held responsible for any errors or inaccuracies. All the equipment featured on this site is from part of my own collection, nothing is listed that I do not own, If I don't have it it won't be on here. All photographs are also from my own collection except where indicated.
I have no connection with the RACAL/THALES company whatsoever.
