  2. This was interesting. Must test out a Torn.Fu.f with remote control box. So it was mostly used by artillery forward observers. The use of the 15W.S.E.a remote control may have been that the radio was mounted in a vehicle and the operator was located in a nearby house ??? What do you think? Regards LA6NCA
  3. The Fbg.bf was ideal for forward observers, so it was mostly used with the Torn.Fu.f and Torn.Fu.k in artillery units. It could of course be used with the Torn.Fu.b1, which was mainly used in infantry units, but the tactical use was slightly different, so I guess it was not used too often with the Torn.Fu.b1. Likewise with the 15 W.S.E.a/b will not have been used too often by forward observers. So yes, several types of radios were designed to work with the Fbg.bf but for the majority its use was with the Torn.Fu.f/k in artillery units. regards, Funksammmler
  4. Hello folks, Last addition to the flak direction system. The battery box for the Kommandogerät 40 betriebschaltkasten. It holds three 12v batteries to provide the 36V DC for the Kommandogerät. A bit of the original paint left on the cover, but I will have it sandblasted after removal of all the fittings. I'm still looking after the KdoG40 manual to have the complete description of it. Cheers

    Pre-WWI Helmet (I think) Help Identify?

    wow, Interesting @collectingfool, Possibly Persian?

    FB still hasn't told me what I did. Looks like I have been deleted. Can't even connect to FB anymore. URL is blocked. May look into violation of 1st Amendment right. At least they should tell me why I was banned.
  9. I've added another M27 to the collection. This one I am very happy to have as it has nearly all of its Black/Green paint. Sadly the liner has seen better days.

    Some recently acquired Tropical sleeve patches

    Good question @Richard Auld, I would imagine they did.
  11. Very nice @Mark Kand love the detailed photos!

    My Tropical K98 Bayonet

    I've had this one awhile. Nice matching J.Sch. 1940 with Early tropical frog. In my opinion, the frog has always been with this one. The Blade is unsharpened.

    Quist M40

    Comparison with my Q64 WW2 M40

    Quist M40

    This ones a bit of a puzzle. I bought it as a post war Early Bundeswehr Helmet. The shell, in my opinion, is a war time Quist shell, by where it is stamped, it no longer has any lot numbers, (Maybe Quist export for Finland ?) The liner is of the post war type, as is the inside paint, I believe the outside was repainted later. The chin strap though seems very crude and cheap. Any thoughts guys?

    I've actually seen the movie since I posted this. I too enjoyed it.

    Hey @ahrtal, I was wondering where you went! Keep me posted if you start a new account or get old one back.

    Anyone seen JoJo Rabbit yet?

    Yep! It was great---even my wife liked it. I wasn't sure if I would or not based on the previews. A work art and genius! Oh, BTW, I guess FB deleted my account. No details. Went to appeal but no response after four days. Pretty sure my account was hacked based on some events that occured the day before. I was asked by a forum member what l had put on the 72 hr. auction, and I had not put anything on there and never had. He said it must have been a FB glitch. Next morning I was disabled. I also found a second account in my name and profile photo, but nothing else. I never opened another account.
  18. I'm working on a new video about Fbg.bf I've found two rados it can be used on. It's Torn.Fu.b1 and 15W.S.E.b I believe that Torn.Fu.b1 used by reconnaissance units. But what was 15W.S.E.b used for when remote control device was used? Please tell me more about how Fbg.bf was used. LA6NCA
  19. Hello FS, As my display is all wood, I linked all grounds Pzk, umformers frames , sender and receiver frame, together. Grounding loops in place on frames. Null resistance between all components. So I assume the EUa I replaced needs some attention. Probably the big block condensation needs checking. Thanks for the input.

    A bit weird, the audio circuits are all low voltage. The only thing I can imagine that you have a leaking HV capacitor in one of the umformers causing a different earth level between the transmitter and receiver. This would normally be equalised by the connections via the equipment housing and the racks to the steelwork of the vehicle but I can't recognize on your movie clip if you have bonded it properly. Make sure that the springs in the mounting frame and the bonding strips of the transmitter and receiver housing are clean and make proper contact. Also make sure that all the morning frames are all bonded via the supports. regards, Funksammler
  21. Hello did you use a 12v battery for powering ? Or a psu giving 12v in this case it will be interesting to measure the ripple , you can put a meter and select Vrms and see if the input voltage is correct , same on 130 V or 350v just an idea pierre
  22. Of course not. I doubt the Pzk24 would survive 350v. But strangely enough, when switching on the mike from the pzk24, I could hear the U10a running harder and the scale lamp burned brighter. I then swapped both umformers and it solved the issue. Could the EUa been "leaking" some current ???? Side question: did you ever tried a U10b ? Mine is doing a hell of background noise. I checked the condensators, but they all are within tolerance. But I lack one self in the 12v input. No idea what type it should be. Thanks

    Were you powering the Kasten.Pz. from the U10?
  24. Well, As I noticed a kind of power spike on the 10WSc when switching the mike on, I swapped the EUa and U10a power supplies. And now, it works... Using the mike from Pzk24 through Pzk22b to 10WSc is ok. Good sound on the LSG(Fu)b. I tried both the Kmfb and the hand held mikes. Now, why would the uformers play a role in this, I have no clue. Remco, if you could use your ET Peilgerät 😄 ....
  25. Thanks FS I will try that.

    Probably the switches in the Kasten. Pz.... Can you measure directly between the microphone input and the output to the transmitter on the Kasten.Pz? regards, Funksammler
