Dear TH. Have you forgotten this quiz?
Without your hint I guess:

Could it be the Communications Act of 1934?

Dear JH,
You win the Chocolate Nut Roll; I wish I could include in your prize package Double Edged Secrets but the budget won't allow it. It is now your turn.

TH. Was my answer really correct, because it was just a guess?
Okey, here's a new one.
Here's a famous field instrument used in Inter-War years.

What is the type of it?

Dear JH,
It is in the OSS catalog of equipment; but I don't know model numbers.

Another hint:
"A telephone and calling buzzer facility are fitted in this model; these are of course not immune from overhearing. Note the folding type Morse key in the bottom right hand corner of the case. This model was already fitted with a potentiometer and reverse key."

The manufacture of similar instruments in other countries, notably France, Italy, Portugal, USA, Holland, is noted. In Germany and Holland the equipment was called 'Geheim Telegraaf' (Secret or Secure Telegraph).

Maybe another hint is needed after weeks of silence...
