KM philips DR25b1x = phi 1 uk 41

Recommended Posts

tornfuté

it’s a vhf transceiver 37,5 to 46,2 mhz

tubes : 2 x KDD1 and 2 DF25

power output is 1 watt A3 mode = voice 

accessories are one mike  with 2 prongs connectors and one headphone with a 3

prongs connector like  nearly on each marine set , lower part  part of set is for batteries 

This set is in grey marine color , we see 2 marks one round one where it’s written

kriegsmarine , and a small one a M. i have read in trenkle that the set is instable

and unsatisfactory for any use. I don’t know where it’s used  , may be for harbour 

ships like tugs , or fisher ship, i know they are used for recovering pilots shot down

at sea. I know it because there is in one notice  an antenna for a one watt set, on board

fishing ships from 17V.P Flotille , it’s mentionned but without set name so it can be 

also from LO 1 uk 35  also one watt., antenna strahler is 1,67 m and placed on top 

of mast at 13 meter above main deck.

now the pictures of set

Val i know the Uori psu  , indeed it’s for the phi uk 41 , but it ´s something 

else a biger psu that will never fit in the batterie box , hence  i believe 

the small one is a well hand made .

the available place  or height is 97 mm , compare with UORi  schematic

@tornfuté i think you are right the psu is self made and box is also not

original, maybe converted forim Torn.E.b accessory box or hand made and

handles taken from Torn.E.b box.

Some infos i found in my papers 

around 1200 sets were furnished to KM, the set was never use on board 

ship , it’s a portable set put in a frame with a canvas , 2 antennas type were used a l/4 and a l/2

batteries are  1 x 150 v batterie and 3 x 4;5 v, 

it was used in Danzig aera at the end of WW2 when troops evacuate

due to red army  attacks

about what i had written on 17 flotille fisher ship , the antenna must be 

for the Lo1 uk35
