This video was taken at a Military Radio Collectors Association mini-meet at former Signal Corps Fort Monmouth E Evans Signal Lab in Belmar, NJ, now the InfoAge science and history museum. N3FRQ, K4CHE, and K2WI gathered to activate a number of sets and demonstrate them to visitors to InfoAge and the New Jersey Antique Radio Club Radio Technology Museum.
I wish I could afford to put this set in a Jeep.
Before the days demonstrations I checked in with a group of buddies on 3.5Mc CW.
The TCS set is running off the car battery with its dynamotor power supply. Note that there is no sidetone, full break-in and the keying relay follows the bug at almost 30 WPM.

Second clip shows operation from drivers seat. The TCS remote can be seen on the dashboard. A Navy Flameproof key type 26003 is mounted on the console. My reply is delayed by need to unplug microphone and plug in key to remote.
