The Wireless Set Canadian No. 58 is a Second World War era short range infantry manpack set.[1]

The No. 58 Set was introduced as a lightweight replacement of the Wireless Set No. 18. It was technically more advanced and less conspicuous to carry however it did not come into widespread use primarily because of supply difficulties with the special combined battle battery.
