Does anyone know if this foundation at the Semaphore at Cap Levi (Cherbourg, France) was for the W-R.
I think so.
One of the people that "work" there say'd it was for a gun (postwar).
Strange, they also "knew" there were two guns..........if so where was the other gun placed.
According to Atlantikwall relikte and some other internet sites there has to be a V206, are there some pictures?
Offcourse there is al lot of electricity needed for the radars but there is also a SK machinenstand built next to the Semaphore, why built two bunkers for SEA?
Or are SEA bunkers different than Machinenbunker, i think they were both used for the same purpose, providing energy for the W-R.
The picture shows the base for a W-R radar and it got the energy from the SK but for which radar(s) was the V206 used?
Who has the solution?
Greetings Jack

Hello all

I found on a site about the V2 rocket a picture from the Würzburg Gigant.

I think its on a lafette, so portable may be with the trailer SdAh 203.

I know the mounted and railway version.

best regards
Henning

17 tons of heavy German radar restored in Norway.

The German radar chain covered during the war the entire front from the Pyrenees to Kirkenes. Now the Aviation Museum at Sola received over one of the remaining German war radar and put it in perfect condition.


The radar, which is the type of Wurzburg Riese, was among the first major radar installation that the German defense established in Norway during the war. The plant is now in place on Sola was in 1941 placed at Vigra outside Aalesund, said operations manager Egil Endresen Aviation Museum, Sola to Aftenbladet.

FuMO 4, the radartype that almost got lost.

Post by SES » 08 Feb 2012 17:21

In 1986 F. Trenkle published “Die deutchen Funkmessverfahren bis 1945” an excellent book and a real classic, a must for any Ln-nerd. So I was quick to pick it up.
On page 131 there is a drawing of a presumed FuMO 4, but Trenkle also writes: ”Die Antenne des FuMO 4, das anscheinend nur als Munster gebaut wurde, kann nur noch bei der Anlage FuMO 34 (a shipborne vession) zum Einsatz“.
So it was assumed that the FuMO 4 was never deployed operationally ashore. This assumption was correctly based on the fact, that this type of radar was not mentioned in any Kriegsmarine KTB or in the list of equipment handed over to the allies (e.g. BAMA RM 7/1590) where it is incorrectly listed as FuMO 3.
Here is the rest of the story.

Thanks SES

It's very difficult to find erors in the books of F. Trenkle , but this is one .
But I think the Fu.M.O. 4 was placed late in the war end 1944 /begin 1945
because I never encountered the Fu.M.O. 4 in the France and Belgium .

Hi Jos,
Agree on both. One more that Trenkle missed was the Freya Verbunkert ( he does have a picture - wrongly identified), which might be the subject of my next study, if and when I get the material.
I have never seen a picture of a FuMO 4 from a place outside Norway or Denmark so I agree that it must have been fielded very late.

Hello
Intersting to see the drawing of the equipment used with the Fumo 4. Makes it more easier to understand the equipment used at other sites, as this one, a Freya LZ.

Yes indeed, and it is astounding, that the same components could be used in so many different systems. Only the radio tubes in the transmitter and receiver had to be changed - so it seems. I also find it interesting that the transmitter had to be water cooled.
For more equipment please see:

Hi,
I have recently come into posession of ADI report # 107 "GERMAN RADAR PROGRESS". On p. 3 there is the following statement: ". . . but with horizontal polarisation. The latest type SEETAKT has been seen at Carteret. It is on 81,5 cm, and it is mounted on a rotating pillar (Drehsaule). As opposed to the older models, it has split".

The FuMO 3 had vertical polarisation and no split. The FuMO 4 had horisontal polarisation and split (beam).
Carteret is station 62 on this map:
http://www.gyges.dk/FuMO%20locations%20 ... er%205.pdf
and it is listed as having a FuMO 3, but in German records the FuMO 4 was consistently called FuMO 3.
So in all probability there was a FuMO 4 at Carteret.
