Hi, I need some help identifying a radio set used by the Wyoming National Guard in the late 1930s-early 1940s. (See the attached picture) The picture was taken at the WYNG's training installation at Pole Mountain, Wyoming between Cheyenne & Laramie. I have little information about the set (and if I screw up the radio terminology I apologize.) It was a portable ground station powered with a hand crank generator. I appreciate any help to identify the set.
