Article about: Not sure if this is the right forum to place this, so admin please move if needed. That being said, I just picked up this little guy. Saw one in a museum display, and decided I wanted one. N

    I have one just like this and it works- used it in Germany back in the 80,s picked up AFN(Armed Forces Network) -It also works here in the USA, these have a switch on the inside to change it over from 220v to 110v , just have to use the plug adapter.

    Glenn -

    I should add that when I got mine I had a German navy officer in the Bundesmarine(Navy) Ortnungschule in Bremerhaven check it out for me before I used it - he did have to change a few tubes, which were available in the then DDR - So what ever you get make sure you do have it looked at or you could do more damage to it.
    Lots of luck

    I've got this little warning-sign concerning listening in to enemy broadcasts:

    "Whoever listens to enemy broadcasts, tolerates the enemy in his own home.
    Whoever tolerates this, is a deserter. Harsh punishment is assured.
    Broadcast Criminals are Traitors to the People!"
