Welcome to the Communication Equipment Forum
 
Welcome to the Communication Equipment Forum. This is a place where information is exchanged about both wireless and wired communication equipment used by both the Allies and the Axis powers during the period between 1933 and 1945. Radar and airplane guidance equipment should also be covered on this forum. The collecting community of communication equipment has become quite large, and is growing constantly. This forum is a place where both novice and advanced collectors can gain valuable knowledge which will help them avoid the many pitfalls of this very interesting hobby.

German radio technology in the pre-war and war-time period was a full 20 years ahead of all other countries. Even though quality of materials deteriorated as the war came to a close, the design and and construction of these sets maintained its integrity. What was the key to the superiority of German radio technology of that time? CERAMICS. German engineers of the Hescho Porcellain Fabrik, developed ceramic substrates with stable dielectric properties patented as Calit / Calan. The Lorenz Company introduced magnezium-aluminum die-cast techniques for chassis construction, which considerably improved the specifications of their new products. Hans Vogt invented low-loss iron dust-core materials. Construction became modular and sectional. The standard 19 inch rack was invented and used for the first time. The Köln E52 series of receivers were constructed with modules that plugged into a "motherboard". These and other amazing inventions were created by Germany during this period.

A note for folks researching market prices for their items. As the purpose of this forum is to expand our knowledge of the subject, seeking market prices does not contribute to this. Feel free to contact any of the long-standing members of the forum privately for their opinion on prices. You may or may not get an answer.

Not new, but....
 
Greetings,
I have tried this before, but did not get to far....I have four field phones, and want to get them all working. Some receive, some send, and so on. I need information on how to do system checks to determine what component is not working properly, and how to fix it.
Basic stuff for most, but still needed. I was given a link to a site, but could not get it loaded.. help!

And thanks,
Mike

Hello to all... I am from Queensland Australia, and interested in all aspects of radio restoration, but highly interested in German WW2 equipment. I have
an E10aK, Ez6 and now a Telefunken E52a-1, an extremely rare receiver in Australia, which I am in the process of slow restoration. I am seeking others who can assist, I need a scan of the rainbow dial and the external case markings, as
well as general advice. I have so far restored the audio module and refitted the
variable BFO , the cut off shaft extension next in line. The receiver is completely stripped for case and main chassis clean and paint. I also need template for power supply hinged case cover (missing)and DF cover. As this is my first post I hope I got it right...
Thanks...Weathersat

Welcome to the subforum, we can certainly need some new (and old) people to keep things going. You can find information on most aspects of German WW2 communication on this forum, and even if it has not been discussed before I am sure there will be someone willing to help find the answers!

regards,

Funksammler
