Informationen zur J 51 Taste


This is a hard-to-find key which consists of two strips of metal which are held in the hand like a gun or scissors, and brought together to make contact and send a light signal with an external light gun. The key and light gun and tripod and other accessories and carrying cases constitute the SE-11 Signalling set.
The key is supplied with a long wire cord so that the operator can stand FAR away from the light gun while sending signals. The light gun is obviously a tempting target for any enemy and therefore the long cord was literally a life-saver. Most of these keys are painted olive drab and engraved J-51. Other models are painted black.
