 +====== US Signal Corps Laboratories ======
 +The ** U.S. Signal Corps ** established a laboratory for testing and development of military transmission equipment in Camp Vail in 1917.
  
 +In the labs, commercial sets were checked for army use suitability and partly sets were developed or modified in cooperation with commercial manufacturers.
 +
 +In 1925, the location was renamed **Fort Monmouth**. Here, in view of the emerging World War II, new communication devices were developed; after the attack on Pearl Harbor, emphasis was placed on the development of radar and microwave communication equipment.
 +
 +As the military radio sets were needed in large quantities, numerous American manufacturers were invited for licence production. The sets were manufactured under **Contracts**,​ the Contract Number and the manufacturer are usually indicated on the type plates of U.S. sets.
