    Default RADAR Chain App


    Just received an email from Graham about his App that he's been working on.
    Here's the info...

    RADAR Chain by Graham Randall.

    The RADAR Chain app provides a unique oversight of the development of RADAR in the UK during the period 1936 onwards. With war imminent, the development genius of Robert Watson Watt and Arnold Wilkins experimented with the visionary concept of detecting aircraft by the reflection of radio waves. Following successful trials at Bawdsey on the Suffolk coast, a chain of RADAR sites (Chain Home) was built around the UK.

    This app shows all of the early sites and provides a satellite view of each location plus details and photographs from those early years. The development of RADAR is explained together with full details of Bawdsey where so much of the early work was carried out and where today the Bawdsey Experience provides visitors with a truly memorable day out.

    And it's now available free at this link...

    Some of my pics & info about RAF Branscombe are on there but I don't have anything to use the app on so I can't see it for myself, lol. Have a look at his site too; some excellent info on there, especially about the origins of Home Chain Stations. Hope you enjoy. :)

    I come from the west country and I can drive a tractor.
