L024262 AIRCRAFT SHORT-WAVE RADIO RECEIVER. (Empfänger Kurzwelle E10K für Luftfahrzeug) 

BACKGROUND: All Luftwaffe, (Air-{Weapon}, Force), aircraft were equipped with a variety of assorted, FuG, Funkgerät, (Radio Equipment), that were primarily communications, target finding and homing type devices. The FuG 10 series consisted of two receivers and two transmitters with one receiver and transmitter having long wave frequency ranges of roughly, three to six hundred kilohertz with the other receiver and transmitter had short wave frequency ranges of roughly, three to six megahertz. This example is a type "E10K", Empfänger Kurzwelle , (Short Wave Receiver). Of Note: Beginning in 1938 the "RLM", Reichs Luftfahrt Ministerium, (National Ministry of Aviation), established required specifications for all aircraft instruments and equipment items as well as flight accessory items and assigned a specific, Anforderungszeichen, (Contract/Requisition), numeral to each specific instrument.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The set consists of a roughly, 7" tall, 81/2" wide, 81/2" deep, (17.7cm x 21.5cm x 21.5cm), field-grey, aluminum alloy casing. The obverse of the set has four, assorted, circular, dials, two, multi-holed, plug outlets and a glass faced viewing window and slit. Three of the four dials are recessed while the fourth, largest dial is slightly raised although it is set within a recess. The three smaller dials have a unique, swivel panel handle, with embossed cross-hatched patterns, that fills half of each dial’s circular recesses and pops up so the dial can be turned. The three smaller dials were used for different purposes and starting with the left and going to the right, volume control, the next with "A3", "A1" (for different antenna settings?) and the final one "Frequenzangleich" for fine tuning. The larger of the dials is the tuning dial and adjusts the range from 3000 – 6000 KHz. Rivetted to the front is a small plaque with the text "E. 10 K." (Designation), "Lieferer: C. Lorenz A.G.", (Supplier: Lorenz Joint Stock Company), "Gerät Nr. 124-108 B-1", (Model {Equipment} number 124-108 B-1), "Werk Nr. 27071-41", (Work {Order} number 27071-41), "Anforder Z. Ln 26 594", (Contract/Requisition number Ln 26 594), "Bauart: Lorenz", (Type of Construction/Design Lorenz). and "Herst. Lorenz", (Manufacturer Lorenz). To the bottom corners are holes where the spring loaded slotted posts that are part of the quick mount system would normally be but have been removed. To the reverse is a single quick connect plug. To the upper corners are two slots with roller bushing that would mate with the hooks on the mounting board while at the bottom corners can be seen the slots where the ends of the spring loaded locking fasteners should have been. The Receiver is in very good condition retaining about 80% of its paint with some minor scape marks and to the casing and moderate scrape marks and dent to the face.
