H049981 MORSE CODE TELEGRAPH KEY. (Morseschrift Telegraphieren Schlüssel)

BACKGROUND: Accurate intelligence and secure lines of communication are crucial elements to all armies in the field and during WWII each division in the German Army had an integral Signals unit. The Signals unit were usually of Battalion strength and generally consisted of a Headquarters Company, a Radio Company and a Telephone Company. The Signals personnel utilized a wide variety of radio receivers, field telephones and associated communications equipment in all theaters of operation. One of the common pieces of communications equipment was a Morse code telegraph key which came in at least three slightly different models. The Morse code telegraph key could be used in conjunction with most German field radios. The main advantage of telegraph signals was that the field radios could transmit them roughly twice the distance further then voice signals.
