    Hi Neil, I saw a history show that talked about Opta and how they were a leading radio and tv research company prior to the NAZI take over. The ID card you have is for a factory in Gorlitz, Poland. I did some research and Opta only admits to making radar tubes, radios, and directional finders there. But Opta Radio AG did perfect the radio control signal decoders for the HS-293A, the first remotely controlled glidebomb. Since Opta also worked closely with Phillips of Eindhoven, and Opta made the equipment that decoded the messages coming from a gyroscope, there's a good chance they worked on the V-1 or V-2. Opta was accused of using slave labor at Flossenberg and Wolkenberg, so they changed their name to Loewe after the war. That might be why they say they only made normal stuff where your ID is from. It's gonna take alot of research to find anything out for sure. Pretty interesting stuff though.

    Take care,
    Jay
