STANDARD RADIO Bug -1940.
This key was built by Standard Radio Co. of New York, for special order of the U.S. Army Corps.
It’s use was specifically on aircraft operating mainly during the Second W.W. on the Pacific coast area .
The particularity of this bug is a solid mechanical key and overall weight.
The contact points of the dots and lines have a contact surface very generous, like the famous Mfg.
The washers are solid and are suitable to avoid the displacement of adjustments on an aircraft where there were a lot of vibration, the knurling of the screws Hannoun particular design that improves grip, so as to prevent slippage when used in control with “order” gloves.
The truck is the old design of the first Bluracer, but to the side there was added a solid metal disc that optimizes its functions.
The bug has just arrived and is therefore still to clean the patina of time, but nevertheless seems in excellent condition, complete with all its original component and has the characteristic name plate with serial number # 1593.
I have worked to try and seems to respond to large, I would say a really good bug.
The Standar Radio Company has produced many of these key, but only for the specific lot was order by the U.S. Army.
Today we know only a few specimens in the collection and is therefore genrly defined as "scarce" to find.
This bug has been produced with base color black, green and more rarely dark brown color.
Have been cataloged to date, only 16 of these keys registered in the various collections.
This key is included in the 16 surveyed and comes from one old collection from U.S.A.
Eleven of these keys don’t have a label, while only five hold the original label with the serial number.
The serial number is detected lowest 1517 and highest 1599.
There is active an initiative of census for this Bug, so if you have a Standard Radio Bug please join this valuable initiative operated by KT5X.
