Shorrock Developments Ltd
Believed to be the first company in the UK selling airband radio’s. Located at 51 Preston New Road, Blackburn, Lancashire, England. (I believe the individual was called Stan Shorrock)
Shorrock Mk. V Receiver – Cost £36 (This would be the equivalent of £700 in 2018!)
This radio is a Decca TP85 modified to receive the Aircraft Band, with a plastic label stuck over the original dial. The Decca cost £24.
One advert says a single VHF band version was available for £28.
Shorrock VHF Receiver
Shorrock Clubman – Single VHF aircraft band
I have uploaded a video of the Clubman still working 50+ years after it was first made –https://youtu.be/iI5VSiNknq8
The Shorrock VHF Receiver was based on a Perdio PR100 as can be seen here
