Hi Sturm,

About the previous photo(of Funker Mikkeli)-

I can't name the Notstromaggregat for sure, but I've seen the generator being used in a Notstromaggregat, mounted on the KdoGer.35 carrying truck(Kfz.74).I think it is an early(meaning mid 30's) generator:
Kfz-74---4.jpg
I've read somewhere a mention of an EG400 generator set, from which later the GG400(the Funkwürfel or Panzerwürfel) was developed.
The EG400 seems to have been mounted in a tube frame, like the one on your picture.
So might it be an EG400???

The devices to the right must be Ladetafel(s),although I've never seen that particular type before.

With regard to your latest picture-
I think these are RRH's- a "dome" is visible on their canvased tops, where the counterweight(18-Gegengewicht) protrudes above the plane of the Ringtrichter:
RRH Beschreibung 10.jpg
IMG_20190403_220837.jpg
The first 2 pictures come from AHF and a 1939 textbook for Flakscheinwerferkanonier.
The last picture is of a RRH model I built last year.

HTH,
Cheers,
Angel

Hi Hans1906,

The most similar Feldklappenschrank equipment that I've been able to find in the web is this one and I can see various differences with the equipment of my image.... :?

Sturm78,

you are right, I was wrong...

Not Wehrmacht, probably an early "Reichswehr" item, looking at your photo again, a photo from the WW I.

Sorry for the wrong information. :|

Hi all,

A bicycle type generator of Luftwaffe.
Does somebody know the German designation of this device ?

I think for supply energy to some radio equipment....

I suspect that is a very crude version of a telephone repeater station. These take incoming calls and amplify the signal to send them on to another location. They don't switch calls, but simply strengthen the signal on a particular line as it goes along so it doesn't become so weak as to be unintelligible. Repeater stations are necessary to allow "long distance" calling to occur. In the 40's this might be calls that exceed say 10 to 20 miles at most.

The thicker cables at the rear rack (on top) appear to be ones that would provide the power to amplify each signal, while the boxes on the right are meters that show signal strength and the ones to the left are connections for the trunk lines that are carrying the signals. At least that's what it appears to be to me.

I apologize for not being able to find some pictures of such gear on line, but it was common back then as it was necessary for long distance telephone communications.
