Can't speak for the BC-610, but the AT20M - 4 x 813 in parallel in the rfpa - was used as the first mfbc tx for 8DR at Darwin during & after WWII. Still a few working around VK. They were used by US forces also under a different label.

Was the BC-610 ever used as a "clandestine" AM broadcast station for propaganda and/or a news/music spot on the dial for our troops during WWII, the Korean War, or those afterwards?

Just wondering as it certainly seems to still be a boatanchor workhorse today.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Enjoy the time with them as times move on regardless of us.
