    Default 1939 German Feldfernsprecher

    Hy Guys!

    I need help with my german 1939 made Feldfernsprecher.

    I would like it to use at my home as a secondary telephone. But first I would like to try if it's working or not.

    Here's what I'm doing:
    1. I put a 1,5V battery in it

    2. I connect a telephone wire to La and Lb/E. In this situation, I can hear in the receiver a continious sound, which means I got line. Now, I'm trying to phone it up with my mobile phone see if it's ringing. In my mobile I can hear a busy line on the other side. If i push the receiver's button, nothing happens, the line isn't quit.

    3. I connect a telephone wire only to La. In this situation there is NO line, but when I'm trying to phone up the german fieldtelephone, it doesn't ringing, but in my mobile phone I can hear it's "ringing". If I connect the other telephone wire to Lb/E while it's "ringing" in my mobile, I can talk. Same situation about the wiring in Lb mode.

    4. In test mode, when I rotating the crank, it rings

    What I'm doing wrong??? How can make this telephone working? I don't want to phone up anybody with it, I just want to receive calls on it.

    Still looking for the solution. Can't make it working Checked the wiring inside the telephone and inside the receiver, everything looks fine. Any help?

    I don't understand what you are trying to do. I know how to connect field phones to switchboards and each other. I have not done any conversion like you are describing. Ringing into an FF33 requires a strong signal from the generator. NH

    I only would like to use this FF33 as a secondary phone at home. I don't want to call up anybody with it, just receive calls on it like on a regular modern house telephone.

    I can ring it with the Test button, and I got a line sound when I connect it to a wall outlet. But when I depress the receivers button, the line isn't quit. Looked inside the receivers wiring, everything looks fine. It has connections everywhere.

    If I were more technically inclined, I could help.
    Could be as simple as one wire.

    We used to hook up old rotary phones in a
    buddies basement bedroom - he had 5
    or 6 telephones connected to the
    same line.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Got an information from a German Youtuber, that I will need a 4,5V battery not a 1,5V. I've just started to talk with him. Will se what happens next. I will post informations here, if I successfully made some progress.
