(e). German WW2 radio communication equipment

LA6NCA German WW2
Radcom Pages

News about this site, see page 91n

Kw.E.a is probably the best functioning of all the German communication receivers.
With the proper function settings and simple modification the performance may be compared to later receivers like Drake 2-B and Collins 51-S, in fact the Collins receiver needs some modifications for perfect operation on SSB and it uses similar AGC-amplifier

Intention for the German radio and radar pages:
The intention is not to copy the more professional style you find on many other sites, which in my opinion takes a lot of work to present little info. It is no good reason for shown a lot of small picture with inadequate text, with the possibility to click on the picture to have a little larger micro-picture without text, but show some observations and references I have collected with actual information on the actual page or referred to when too much to display on the first page. I am aware that it may not look professional, and I am critized for it, but professionalism doesn't make anything alone. In the data-age the tool update seems often to be more important than to make anything useful at all. My hobby is not to plan to do something some time in the future.
