Clansman, what radio sets and acill's were there

8 metre mast, that thing that looked like an inside out umbrella..
That would be the Ground Mounted Monopole IIRC (GMM)
Also, not spotted thus far the Elevated VHF antenna, commonly referred to as the Pineapple, and the Inverted V, which was highly directional.

Has the 12m mast had an honourable mention yet?
I think the RT346 was made by Harris and a copy of the 113 (US radio).

How about the Bob Marley?

When it comes to test kits, the TRE (Test Rig Electronic) was replaced by the 8920C.
Nothing to add, just that loads of the above reminds me of my past, oh wait a minute what about the hand-bike - the awesome Hand Generator for use with the slimline lightweight 1.1 AHC batteries (or conversion kit for RealBigDizzy-tee hee).
