Random information on the term “AMES”:

Chain Home, or CH for short, was the codename for the ring of coastal early warning radar stations built by the Royal Air Force (RAF) before and during the Second World War to detect and track aircraft. Initially known as RDF, and given the official name Air Ministry Experimental Station Type 1 (AMES Type 1) in 1940, the radar units were also known as Chain Home for most of their life. Chain Home was the first early warning radar network in the world and the first military radar system to reach operational status. Its effect on the war made it one of the most powerful weapons of what became known as the “Wizard War”.

In late 1934, the Tizard Committee asked radio expert Robert Watson-Watt to comment on the repeated claims of radio death rays and reports suggesting Germany had built some sort of radio weapon. His assistant, Arnold Wilkins, demonstrated that a death ray was impossible but suggested radio could be used for long-range detection. In February 1935, a demonstration was arranged by placing a receiver near a BBC short wave transmitter and flying an aircraft around the area. An oscilloscope connected to the receiver showed a pattern from the aircraft’s reflection. Funding quickly followed. Using commercial short wave radio hardware, Watt’s team built a prototype pulsed transmitter. On 17 June 1935, it measured the angle and range of an aircraft that happened to be flying past. Basic development was completed by the end of the year, with detection ranges on the order of 100 mi (160 km). In 1936 attention was focused on a production version, and early 1937 saw the addition of height finding.
