Default Direction finder?

During WW II we had German origin direction finder stations in Finland.

Only document that I have found said: " It was situated in the little cabin on a swamp and weight was about 40kg and it has four telescopic masts around the area"

Has anybody ideas what it was and even a fotos?

There are several types of Adcock DF receivers that would fit that bill. The Germans used a small foldable "hut" that would fit the description of "little cabin". Any more info on wavelength, early/late war, description etc?

Cabin might be build by locals as it was "light weight with little stove for warming". Masts were about 4m height. This was late 1943. No more information available....

Sounds like a short wave installation but mast were typically a bit higher (8 to 12 meters). Most likely it could have been the FuPeil A70 "Hüttepeiler". This was based on an adapted Kw.E.a. There were several versions using a four mast antenna configuration.

Another possibility is the Fu.Peil.Ger.c, one version used four main masts with a smaller antenna rod placed on the roof of the cabin. Most other versions used five or six mast antenna configurations.

OH5YW, for FuPeil A70 look at this document.

On the page 37 you can see the "Hütte" and four masts...
