The Wireless to contact Cairo
was a
Wireless Radio-System-SCR-284-A
hidden in our home,

The Egyptian Secret Service "Mokhabarat" , was succesful, in smuggling the Wireless Radio-System-SCR-284-A, to Port Said in order to receive the "daily "ORDERS from Cairo President Nasser Office and to send the daily reports about the "Secret Resistance" activities implemented in the city

This unit was hidden in my mother`s cloth cuubbord at our home, and was
maintained by "1st Lt Farag" from the "signals" unit of the Egyptian Armed Forces

He had to cypher and decyfer the reporets before sending them to Cairo.

A vocal contact was totally forbidden and was limited to Ämorse signalsÄ only

The British got indications of wireless signals being sent from the city , dispatched the "direction finders" cars, found the place ...

The Helicopter hovvered over our building .... a patrle of 5 persons began to search every appartment in the buildin ..... came in ours .... began to search ..... BUT ...... failed to find it because .......

A British Gemtleman officer faced an Egyptian lady ..... "my mother"

This is another story
