Here is a list of UK Second World War jamming equipment that I posted on a different forum whilst referencing Norman Friedman's British Cruisers

Type 91 operated at 200-600 MHz with an output of 8-22 watts.

Type 91M had a wider frequency range of 90-600 MHz.

Type 650:
Radio Jammer to counter German Guided missiles.

Type 651:
Same purpose as Type 650.
1 kW output

Type 652 (Jostle):
Aircraft Jammer

Types 653/1 & 653/2 (known as Naval Carpet II):
Automatic swept-frequency jammer.
100 watts, 350-750 MHz.

Type 654 (American Carpet I):
Spot or barrage jammer.
5 watts, 480-700 MHz.

Type 655 (Carpet III):
No other information provided.

Type 656 (American Rug):
Pre-spot or barrage jammer.
8-20 watts, 200-550 MHz.

Type 657 (Pimpernel/Carpet I):
No other information provided.

Type 658 (British Mandrel):
10 watts, 100-152 MHz

Type 659 (American Mandrel):
Aircraft jammer.

Type 660 (British Moonshine):
No other information provided.

Type 661 (Peter):
Apparently abortive.

Type 662:
Abortive Countermeasures set developed by the Admiralty Signal Establishment.

Type 663 (American Carpet IV):
Pre-spot or barrage jammer.
5-40 watts, 350-1400 MHz.

Type 664 (Carpet IIA):
Non-tropicalised version of Type 653.

The Royal Navy also used the American TDY trainable jammer (360-800 MHz).

Unfortunately Friedman doesn't mention the in-service dates, but all of this equipment should be Second World War era.

A very interesting list.
This is probably an amalgamation of a few separate numbering systems. For example radio transmitter sets were also allocated Type numbers which largely overlap with the radar Type numbers listed here.
