About #147 from Valtoro:
Looks like a AMES type 15 with IFF on top. This British equipment was also used by US forces.

The US Army didn't use the AMES system. They used the MEW (Millimeter Early Warning) radar system with, typically, SCR 270 and SCR 268 radars for early warning.

Dear Mr. Gardner,

My information comes from Radar Magazine.
Unfortunately I don't know the issue-number, most probably the year is 1945.
An article describes the combined use of US and British radar equipment by 555th Signal Aircraft Warning Battalion of the 9th TAC.

I will send you a copy of the pages.

Best regards,
Ger
