    Next Box!

    Guys, Not sure how to display these, I was thinking of something similar to the water bottles on a long wire but obviousley these are heavier?! Rich

    Russian Spy thing?

    @Richard Auld It's military stuff, but no spy stuff. It was used with military radio stations to record conversations, orders etc. That microphone is probably for taping telephone conversations, attachment to the phone handset.

    Russian Spy thing?

    No Idea Val! Its just something Russiian, I can't remember if I bought or got it in a swap. It is not very portable in todays terms at about 7 or 8 Kg LOL. There is what looks like a covert mic with it but I suppose that is just part of the inventory. Rich

    Russian Spy thing?

    Not a spy thing, just a portative dictaphone. http://www.rw6ase.narod.ru/00/mg_katp/p180m.html

    Russian Spy thing?

    Very cool set. Soviet post-war tech is interesting because a lot of it was copied from the Germans, but there is some really cool looking equipment that they made.

    Russian Spy thing?

    Guys, My Russian spy thing, for eaves dropping and such like. One of the tapes is used with a pencil note(see pic). Not as good as our stuff of the day? Rich

    Panzer radio and intercom setup

    Very nice setup. The slip ring was a rarety I only saw once at the Littlefield collection. He was able to procure one in its original box. I'm sure no one bothered to remove them from scrap tanks after the war, and they were smelted together with the rest of the tank. Here are the pics I took from the one installed in that Panther:

    Well Done Norrie, You have the top slot at last....good on you!!!! Best wishes.....Ian/ Desert Rat

    Panzer radio and intercom setup

    Only the "Schleifringübertrager" is missing unfortunately. It will eventually evolve into a full Panther A setup. I have a complete and original "Antennekabel p", it is rather set in its shape after being coiled up for 75+ years and I have some worries about damaging it by uncoiling it. The late war coax cable has a soft silicon type insulation which can short out if not handled carefully.... regards, Funksammler

    Panzer radio and intercom setup

    Great job FS. Looks like you have all the pieces, and created a nice display. This looks like the Panther layout. Do you have the antenna matching boxes also? Are you plugging the speaker into the Bosch receptacle?

    Panzer radio and intercom setup

    Hello Funks, I must commend you on such a well set-up radio etc, it looks fantastic, clean tidy and a perfect display.....Well Done!!! Best wishes.....Desert Rat/ Ian

    56mm Shell case today, no idea!

    For the sake of completeness! FFE!
  23. My Fu2/5 setup was quite messy, so I decided I build a few display boards to demo the Panzer radio setup for an impending exhibition. Makes it a bit easier to transport, set up and demonstrate. Unfortunately not a lot to hear on 10m VHF at the moment but at least I can demonstrate the intercom. Only missing the "Scheifringübertrager"... regards, Funksammler

    Boer War Carboot Buy.

    I love all hand crafted items like this and trench art etc, think of the time it would have taken! Most of these things are under valued for what they are. Rich
  25. The voltmeter which I so stupidly damaged has been repaired by a friend of mine. He also provided the correct series resistor for the Anode voltage measurement.
