Default Torn.Fu.b1 CW QSO with the originale antenna, FILM

Hello.
I would like to show you how good a Torn.Fu.b1 works with the original antenna.
This is a very small antenna at the frequency I used. 3570 kHz.
I like this radio better and better.
Here is the film:

Hello,

I'm no Ham operator, but this looks quite good for a 70+ years old radio.
Still looking to contact Funksammler in Normandy ?

Cheers

1 Watt from Norway to Normandy on 80 m, that would be something. Maybe at night and maybe with a bit more power! I am currently able to write the 80 m Field Hell network 600-800 km away with mixed results. Conditions are still not ideal...

regards,

Funksammler

Thanks for the nice post Yuri_D.
Yes, the sound from the radio was very good.
He is one I know who has been platoon leader in a panzer troop
in Søndenfjelske panzer regiment during the Cold War. .
He uses a modern redio, FT817.
I was a radio telegraph in the same regiment.

I replied to the wrong post.
The station I communicated with on CW used an IC-756 and 100 watts.
The station with AM used an FT-817 and 1 watts.
