    Radar was originally known as Radio Direction Finding as used by the Royal Navy during WW2, I know as I did an 8 week course at Douglas on the Isle of Man, I serve on board the Battle cruiser HMS RENOWN, we had type 273 a very goog surface warning set & type 281 Long range aircraft warning set.type 284 used in conjunction with the 15inch guns targeting and reporting , type 273 was a very good set but 2 operators had to climb 70 feet up a steel rung ladder attached to the mast as the transmitter 7 Receiver antennas had to be rotated by hand, one man rotated the antennas and the other man would record all report to the bridge, Radar was invented by a man who was watching the first TV broadcast in London in 1936, and as he was watching the Black & white TV an aircraft flew overhead and it made the picture on the TV shiver He noticed and RADAR was born.Victor Humphries now 90 years old, and living in Australlia.
