Can anybody provide any details about the Marconi 727 radio set. This was fitted onboard a ship in the 40's. I would like to know if possible what sort of effective working range the set had, any other spec details would be of great assistance.

Mark, pm me with your email address and will send what info I have.
The Mimco 727 was a low powered trawler transmitter operating telephony and telegraphy on the 100 to 186 metre band (1.6 to 3 mc/s).
Fully crystal controlled my guess it was probably later than 40's.
There was an adapter 728 to operate telegraphy on the 600m (500 kc/s) band.
