    Looking for photos of P-39 radio equipment that match box found at crash site. The box has 4 large dials on the front of it that indicate between 100-156. I believe it might be part of the SCR-535 recognition set, but I can't find any more about it. I have the pilots manual for the P-39Q, but it does not provide enough info to possitively ID it. Thanks for any help in IDing this box.

    Hey Dave - that looks like a 4 dial AM frequency tuner, but I'm guessing. The cinlindrical item above those knobs looks like a carbon pile voltage regulator.
