It stands for Kasten Funk Übungs Gerät 42. It was used in schools to teach prospective radio operators and mechanics the basics of radio repair.

Hi there,

At the local militaria market, yesterday, just such a "radio training aid" was offered. After a little dealing it went home with me.

It is internally totally stripped. And some radio amature tried to build a two-valve receiver inside using RV2P2000's.
But at least the framework is present ! Usually you only find the boxes. So I took the chance with this one.

Now the big question: would it be possible to restore ?
Externally: certainly. Internally..... ?

Regards,

Ton.

Looks like the interior circuit might be original, components and wiring certainly look period. These are the sort of circuits that you could expect in the Funk Übungsgerät.

It does give a period impression. I agree.
But hands-on inspection does show that, although the parts are period, the assembly is not factory done.
What is inside is as such not left over from the interior, but probably made from some interior parts, with other parts added.

If anyone has a picture or such of the original, that would come in handy.

Ton.
