Default Blaupunk WR1/P Wehrmacht-Rundfunkempfänger

Here's my latest acquisition!

It is operational and works great!
The previous owner has a small repair job!
The radio itself is 100% original with the German colors, Only the box where it belongs is a reproduction of the original, but it is a a good alternative
I hope you will like it, I'm a beginner and I hope you understand me!

He weighs incredibly heavy, I guess 25 kilo!





























The beast!

This is one of my favorite sets, and is in beautiful condition. Great acquisition. This was one of my first radios also.

Here is my radio receiver WR1.
It`s founded in an old house in the attic of the former territory of Kurland Kettle.
The first impression was pleasing, but starting to check more, it appeared that the radio was partially stripped down: there missed original power supply, also the lamps URDOX U518H and MS50, as well as any other was with the gutted fervor. There missed also part of the capacitor and short-wave circuit.
After several months of work, radio began to roll again, using advanced file plugged.













Final! Original color is fully maintained.

DF26 was also for gramophone /tonabnehmer/ amplifier so that troops could play records through the WR1. It was pretty common.
