Following was i describe here up , one of the previous owner must
had a ham licence to be allow to buy the set, then may be later resold
to somebody else .
Normaly the sets that are parachuted , stays in foreign land and don’t
come back to UK

Hi:
The film can be found/seen at https://archive.org/details/movies?and%5B%5D=kon-tiki The scene showing the B2 TX with the hand generator is at 24:14 from https://archive.org/details/kontikipart2

The complete film is very interesting including introduction of crew members with
WW2 SOE background, making of balloon antenna, radio eqpt, etc. In both films the radio is decribed as 7W.

Cheers

Another silly question if I may, what are the red blobs on top of the solder and is this common in home made items?

I ask because the soldering has been described as sloppy yet when I compare this too the inside of my B2's and 48/1, I see no difference? Soldering looks the same and same red blobs are present?

Remainder of soldering flux.... Brands like rubyfluid are still used today so not necessarily an indication of age.

Hello
I don’t agree , on all solderings there is a red varnish , like this
you immediately see if somebody has try to modify anything
same like german sealings apply to screw head
