8GR260

8GR260 was operating in Ka-Band navigation radar for river navigation.

With the exception of the magnetron in the transmitter, the klystron as local oscillator in the receiver and the 12 inch cathode ray tube, the radar was transistorized. The radar uses the double-cheese type of antenna.

The radar was developed in 1966.
