    Hi Mich,

    This is a truly fascinating find! You really need to find out as much as you can about this item from the chap you got it off.

    First off, read this: Operation Biting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Pretty exciting stuff I think you'll agree!

    Now for an explanation of what you have, and what it did: Wurzburg rep!

    It would appear that what you have was once a part of one of the 3rd Reich's greatest secrets....until our blokes captured it of course!!

    Regards, Ned.

    I hate to be the one to cast doubts on this, but although the unit is undoubtedly a heavy-duty voltage regulator (and seemingly madge by Pintsch), it clearly isn't the same model illustrated for the Würzburg radar:
