The wireless was concealed in a hut in Middle Brunton Farm, on Brunton Lane, just north of Newcastle and close to the Great North Road (A1). The hut was apparently sound proofed with the door padded with felt, to avoid any transmissions being overheard.
Since the war the area has been extensively developed and the site is now behind Brunton First School near Newcastle Great Park.
The Newcastle Journal, dated 20 June 1945, ran an article explaining the Special Duties and the role of Bob Potts.
