Renault TSF and its antenna
Permalink   


All we know that Renault FT TSF tank was a wireless communication sistem, but I cannot understand how the antenna was disposed. I mean, if the antenna was a metal wire/cable, was this the right placement?

 

 

 

 

That seems it´s wrong, because we can see there´s no hole on the back plate:

 

 

 

So, what´s the answer? This?:

 

 

 

(BTW, what is that rolled wire on the tail?)

 

I have many doubts and questions about this matter, any help will be much appreciated

The roll of wire on the tail is for the radio operator to be able to change frequency when at a static position, the operator would run the cable out between two points and attach the cable from the radio to a point on the other cable to get the frequency needed.
