FUG10 Receiver


E10K is the short wave receiver in the FUG10 system. The FUG10 system was developed in 1936 – 1937,
and was from 1939 standard radio system in most of Luftwaffe’s bombers.

Four preset radiofrequencies can be programmed with the wheel under the dial.

Latest technology with the tube RV12P2000 was used in all functions in the receiver.
The receiver can be replaced in less then 30 seconds with the unique mounting system.

Here we can see the fine mechanical molding technology used in this radio.

Look at the advanced casting technique and cable guide. This is the German WW2 technology on top.

Measurement of MF filter.
(A) is the signal input from measuring equipment.
(B) is the signal from the filter and back to measuring equipment.
My special measuring probe is in use here.
The signal is terminated in a 50 ohm resistors and connected to the input of MF filter with a capacitor of 1 pF.
With this equipment, we can measure a dynamic range of 100 dB.

Here is the curve to the MF filter.
X axis is 200 kHz. Y axis is 100 dB
The correct frequency is 1460 kHz and not 1500 kHz that I have calibrated to.
The radio works very well with this frequency, too.
