Spy receivers
Receivers used for clandestine reception

Not all spies and agents have a transceiver at their disposal. In practice, many agents only used a receiver for the reception of coded messages. In some cases, the agent used a domestic receiver in combination with a purpose-built clandestine transmitter. This section of the website lists various receivers that were used for the reception of clandestine transmissions.
