guys watched the dambuster movies ,got a question
they are over the dam 400-500 mile from uk at height approx 50-100ft ,they broadcast morse code back to uk mission status (dam burst). at above height 50-100ft ,radio range would be short 20 miles ?to get 100 miles would need 10000ft altitude unless i misunderstand my sources ,did they use a relay aircraft or what am i missing ?
Why would they need 10,000 feet? I suspect you’re thinking of VHF line-of-sight propagation.
I assume that the Lancasters would be carrying the usual R1155/T1154 W/T set, which operates in HF, MF and even LF bands.
All the best,
