Robert,
Sent you an email.

Oh, and I don't know how many times I've looked at that photo, but it never dawned on me that he is "tuning" a unit that isn't even hooked up. Army Public Affairs at it's best!

Email received.

Yep. The first several times that I saw the photo, it didn't register with me, either.

I'm looking for the BX 21 also , though if there is a dimensional drawing of the BX 21 available a copy would be most appreciated.

Thank you

I saw this old post of yours. I am also looking for the BX-21 box. Here is a wartime photo I have of it:

I just had to comment, as I find this photo hilarious... Definitely staged pic- unless the "radio operator" is presetting the Tuning Unit: The item he is fiddling with is a tuning unit for the large transmitter below it, and is simply mounted to its storage case- there are NO connections possible to the transmitter: It is simply a box the TU is mounted into for storage! They use the same TUs on heavy WWII aircraft for the long distance liaison transmitters...
