"Submarine Detection" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following report on the detection of enemy submarines using radio direction finders is taken from Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 1, June 18, 1942.

It is believed that radio sets direction finding SCR 208 A or equivalent can be used to locate submarines which surface at night to transmit information gathered during the day. Submarines cannot be picked up by radar detectors. A skilled operator is needed for each set.
