Russian spy sets

The end of WWII marked the start of the Cold War; a period of enormous tension between East and West, but also a period in which many eavesdropping and spy radio sets were developed. As the leading nation of the Warsaw Pact, Russia, or the USSR as it was known at the time, developed a wide range of spy radio sets.

The radio stations were used for a variety of people and organisations, such as spies, agents, army and special forces. Many of these Russian spy radio sets are described on this website. Click any of the images below for further information.
