This appears to be the introductory manual by the Bendix Corporation for the "Gibson Girl"
rescue transmitter. It was a beautiful glossy-page manual. It was not overly detailed, but the
halftone images of the operation of the device are remarkable.
AN 16-30CRT3-2: Handbook of Maintenance Instructions for Radio Set AN/CRT-3
This is a very detailed book of not just the Gibson Girl transmitter, but there is also a lot
of information about the kite, the baloon, the packing bag the whole thing comes in, and much, much
more. The halftone images are not great, but I think I got them pretty true to the original. This
manual does have many photos of the insides of the device with descriptions of the generator, the
gears, and more. The original manual had some water damage, but every page seems pretty legible.
AN 08-10-94 - Handbook of Maintenance Instructions for Radio Set SCR-578-A or SCR-578-B, 1943
Yet another little maintenance manual. This one is nice because it describes the entire package - not just the electronics.
There is a bit of information on everything - the kite, the ballloon, the raft, and more.
