Need WWII German Heer radio references

Any books or websites that deal with the German communications equipment, its specific uses and details, would be greatly appreciated

Danke, meine Funkers!

Thanks for the tip! Sadly, it's sold out everywhere.

If anyone knows of a copy in stock somewhere, PLMK!

Re: Need WWII German Heer radio references

THANKS for the offer! Im not really sure what to call the exact set up, but it's the wireless that came with DID's SS latest pair, Dennis and Matthias. I need details on how it is set up - i.e. - what plugs into where, and who used it, at which point in the communication chain was it issued, i.e., Kompanie to Abteilung level, similar to the US SCR 300? I assume it was used in Infantry companies, not just, say, in the Nachrichten units. What is it called exactly?

Re: Need WWII German Heer radio references

If you ask on any militaria/collectors forum about anything German comms related, you will hear from a guy called “funksammler.” He’s very knowledgeable. Here is a link to his website.
https://www.funksammlermilitaria.com...uides/page_303
His pdf book on line equipment is fairly authoritative for a free, amateur publication.

Another useful link:

Re: Need WWII German Heer radio references

Here's a video from the same above Norwegian collector, setting up a Torn.Fu.b1 wireless in the snow, to which he has added an external speaker, for our benefit! With subtitles. That antenna seems to stack higher than DID's version. What fun!

Re: Need WWII German Heer radio references

Danke Meine Herrn!

I just got a copy of this French book by Heimdal:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/28...ref_=pd_gw_unk

It has large color photos of every radio set used by the Wehrmacht, including the Kriegsmarine. 240 pages, color photos every device. with some BW shots of manuals and use in wartime service. Even has wiring schematics. French and English captions throughout. It also has a valuable glossary of German radio terms.

Expensive, rare, but worth it. I thought that some of the photos could have been a bit sharper, considering the format.
