Hi stril,
Thanks for sharing. Two picture show a Wassermann M IV, I cannot identify the mast in the lower left corner.
The pictures look as if they are from Norway, so the location should not be that hard to establish. Have you also posted on Kystfortet?
For locations of Was M IV in Norway please see:

Thank you SES
Pictures are from Norway, other pictures should tell where it is. My first guess is that it is either Birne, Dattel, or Kastanie. In some pictures the crew use mosquito nets, normally used up north.
Ill try to find the place.

No you are right, but that is not surprising when it comes to WL electronic equipment :wink:

Hi Navy,
You are welcome, my pleasure.
And considering the purpose of the system, Austria does not sound like a plausible location, unless it is at a factory/test site.
If I understand the text from Trenkle correctly, the system was never fielded operationally, but Trenkle is sometimes wrong on this particular issue.
