There was a massive  'CB Antenna' on one of the sheds Stalham, i wonder was that part of the Jenners  system or an independent system?

I think that was later and a different system.

The Jenners one was a very early system which required a GPO licence and was the same as that in Police cars. The radio in the office was a simple landline that went to the old Post Office on Prince of Wales Rd, which is now the Anglia TV complex. The signal itself was sent from one of the old Wartime radar masts at Stoke Holy Cross. This meant you got good reception on the southern rivers, but not a great deal if you were north of Wroxham! Exactly the same as the local police radios, which wouldn't work in north Norfolk unless you were on top of a hill. The Vans had a Pye radio in them and they could hear and talk to the controller but could not hear or talk to each other.
