Fu5 system used for stationary communication.



A nicely situated Fu9-SE5



Three Funkerinen are operating an Fu9 SE5 radio configuration (Torn. E. b and 5W.S.). Note the antenna strung up between two trees and the counterpoise cable. Looks like the blond lady in the middle is using CW mode. Power is provided via a pedal generator.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. Note the large battery and the 1000 V Umformer for the 100WS transmitter.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. Note the "headphone strip" on the table for connecting multiple headphones to the receiver's output simultaneously. Note how the antenna and ground leads are also connected.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. The battery is shown well here.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. The Kurbelmast can be seen here, and the antenna feed cable.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. Ruhepause. The antenna feed cable is visible - used both for the receiver and transmitter.



Radio training taking place with an Fu. 11 SE 100 configuration. All of our group together for a rememberance photo.



Configuration Fu 11 SE 100. This is a 100 Watt transmitter (100WS) and a pre-1943 Torn. E.b. The Funker is using CW. In front of him is what looks like a command hierarchy chart. Between the devices is the radio operator clock.



Standard Fu 9 SE 5 configuration with a Torn. E.b and a 5WS. Pedal powered of course.



Two Luftwaffe radio men enjoy wine in front of an E445BS and a 100 Watt transmitter. Note the correct umformer below the table. The antenna connections go to the board hanging on the wall. The transmitter is connected to the umformer directly. The Anode batteries for the E445BS are on top of their boxes.



Standard Panzer communications set (Fu 4) with appropriate headphones and throat microphone.



Here is a blurry, but interesting photograph showing the 100 W. S. transmitter, two Torn. E. b receivers and an Lw. E. a receiver. These receivers were the correct ones to work with the 100 W. S. transmitter due to matching frequency ranges. Note the very interesting large battery box above the Lw. E. a. This may be an ultra-rare accessory box for this receiver.



FU 9



Reichsheer signals personnel operate a configuration composed of a Torn. E445bs and an unknown transmitter.



A very interesting photo showing an "Fu 11" configuration. Notice the early version of the 100 W.S. transmitter never before seen on photographs. Note the very large fine frequency adjustment knob on the transmitter. I would love to be able to read the year on the wall calendar.



An Fu. 9 configuration with a pedal generator in the background



Two Torn. E. 445 Bs receivers being used with a 5 W.S. A radio operator's clock is on one of the units.



Who said the Third Reich didn't provide equal opportunity!?! Although probably over 90 today, the one on the right was a hottie!



A very clear photo showing the 5 W. S. side of what probably is an "Fu 9" communications set. This is most likely a pre-war photo since the signals man is using early Telefunken headphones and the 5 W. S. has the early Telefunken manufacturer's data labels.



Two Heer signals men operating an "Fu 9" configuration in a communications van, while smoking cigarettes. Note the 5 W. S. Umformer under the table. The record player is probably transmitting music to the local area through the 5 W. S. , as was commonly practiced by communications teams on both sides.



Members of the Luftwaffe operate an "Fu. 9" configuration. Note the large antenna to the right of the table.



Note the large battery pack for the 5 W. S. on the ground to the right. The Torn. E. b accessory box is sitting on a chair.



Another FU 9 configuration with a Torn. E. b and a 5 W. S. The photo is professionally labeled: on the key.



A 1936 dated postcard showing Heer signals men operating a Torn. E. 445 Bs and a 100 W. S. in the "FU 11" configuration. Note the M-1916 pattern helmets, since this is before the M-1935 model was introduced.



An excellent photo showing an Fu 9 configuration ( Torn. E. b and 5 W. S. ) being used with a pedal-powered generator. It is definitely Summer somewhere on the Eastern Front. Looks like one of the men doesn't have a descent pair of sneakers.



Torn E. b. in a radio van with the complete Airplane-based FuG 3 communications system mounted on the back wall. An unknown civilian radio and a Feldfernschprecher is in the photo as well.



A radio operator is listening using a Torn. E. b receiver in the field in the "Fu 9" configuration. Items of interest in this photo are: 5 W. S. transmitter, radio clock, Morse key. Notice how both the antenna and ground cables are connected to the locking lugs of both the Torn. E. b case and the accessory box.



Two Heer radiomen operate a mobile radio station designated as "Fu 11" based on 1936 standards. It is comprised of the very powerful 100 W. S. (100 Watt transmitter) on the right, and the Torn. E. 445 Bs, an older shortwave receiver on the left.



Photo inside a radio van with the "Fu 9" radio station configuration (Torn. E. b and 5 W. S. This was used for communications between divisional and brigade level.
