I have been trying to remember any experiments from around that time
I cannot remember anything to do with C-Quam, except reading a technical
description which said it required the transmitter RF drives to be
changed for C-Quam ones. But as to how this would have worked with the
IBA's highly efficient transmitters which were new at the time, I don't
know. But I suspect it wouldn't have worked.
