Default LS 100/108 - 100 Watt Sender with camo

Here I want to introduce you my LS 100/108.
I searched very long for a nice example, but now I found one!

It is one of the first Series from 1936. The Number is 42560(36).
I had no time till now to test very much. But from the first look, I would say, that it looks technical OK for me.
The only thing is the upper indicator scale. It is an original scale body, but the scale itself was changed. It clearly is an old changing. (If anyone has a secound, untouched scale, please let me know! )

But never mind. The complete transmitter is in a nice untouched condition and has it's early paint., what was very important for me.
I have a nice picture of my grandfather, sitting in front of an LS 100/108. He was a radio operator sergeant in the Nachrichtentruppe (Signal Corps) in a "mittlere Funktrupp", KFZ 17 in Poland, France and since 1941 in the eastern front.
This is also the reason, why I love german radios!

A nice "extra" is the camoed box. A very nice multilayer camo!

I hope you enjoy it like I do!

P.S. does anyone from you have any idea what I need to get it work? 1000V is very much...




























kind regards,


Stefan

Nice one, looks like there was a prewar grey-green camo pattern applied over the factory ochre-brown-green camo pattern. The Antenna current meter has been converted to a 220V AC meter at some point, so you need to find a replacement (which can be found with a bit of patience and luck). To power it up you need to find a U100 and some cables.

Is your grandfather still alive?

regards,

Funksammler

Thank you very much, Funksammler!

No, both are dead now.
My grandfather wo was in the signal corps died in the 70's on the consequences of his prisoner of war time in russia.
My other grandfather was "Funker" at the infantry and got captured 1944 in Witebsk, Russia. He died 4 years ago.

kind regards,

Stefan

Nice early one, I like it. Thanks for showing.

For powering look for Umformer U100.

Congratulations! Very nice unit. You are lucky all 3 valves are intact and they are very expensive. Last time I checked one RS241 was selling for 595 EUR.

Because tube amplifier enthusiasts get the most linear results from these power triodes, and pay crazy money for them. 1500 Euro for RS237 I've seen, and more.
