Station description

The known operator was Ronald Potts who was the manager at Fruit Packers (Essex) and lived at Oaks Cottage, Wickham Bishops, suggesting the transmitter was nearby. Chantry Wood would be the nearest likely location for a dugout, sitting on higher ground, though of course the set may have been concealed in or near the house.
