Default Dug up frame Tretgestell TG-58 with Pedal generator Tretmaschine TM 5/19

Hello everyone.
A few weeks ago we found this interesting staff in a German bunker near Stalingrad.

This model TM is mentioned in pre-war commercial Telefunken brochures, so in any case it is very early (as is indicated by the 1934 date on the frame). Due to the absence of any Wa.A markings on the tagplate or the frame it is possibly an export version used by one of the German allied armies near Stalingrad. Still pretty cool to find it still in place...

regards,

Funksammler

Thanks for the pictures. it is very nice that the type shield is survived.
I don't have currently any info with which radio that generator was used.
It is interesting that it outputs 7 volts.

This battery on the first picture - did you find it from the same place?
Was there any radio equipment pieces?

We found not much any radio equipment pieces.

Part for Signalman’s Backpack





and plug of the radio station is in very poor condition.





In the winter of this year, I dug up an aluminum jug.



On the surface jug scrawled the word - Ladestation - charging station.





Apparently this jug used guys from Nachrichten uniut.

Maybe we'll have more finds ... I hope so.

hi all
i guess the best way is to put a TM5a1 generator , they are not so
rare , and offer from time to time on eBay , electrolyse cleaning
sanding will help to give a new live to this rare item
