Crystal Calibrator No.9, this is bolted to the side of the WS38 Mk III & the WS38 Mk III plugs in to the cable from the calibrator to the battery. In an emergency should there be a cable fault, the WS38 Mk III can be plugged directly in to the battery, bypassing the calibrator. The power plug for the calibrator is identical to the power plug on the WS38, making this emergency procedure possible.
