I should have specified that there were WWII rigs that used shared common components for transmit and receive, not just a tx and an rx in the same box.

HF examples include the New Zealand Army ZC1, the British and Canadian Army 19 set, the British Army WS38 and WS62.....and others, the numbers of which I can't remember.

The late Wes Craven directed a truly dreadful film in the mid-1970's called "The Last House on the Left".  In the scene in the Police Station an old valve Lafayette short-wave receiver is seen briefly.

I'll bet that the professor was able to reverse-wire the S-40B receiver and make it into a transmitter.  Grin

 Early hams with just a receiver and little money used turn the audio output tube/stage of the receiver into a switchable QRP transmitter and then listen in on the 1st audio tube with headphones.

I could have used one of those when I was a novice and generating RFI like crazy. "What? I only have a receiver!"
