Radio from Luftwaffe

Recommended Posts

I tried to research this radio. A mate found it when cleaning his oarents house. It is in working order and is from the war. It is German and that iswhat he knows. 
In my research I only got offers to sell it but it was mentioned this radio was used in BF 109. Since this have earphones My guess is either from a bomber or from headquarter based in Narvik until a bunker was buildt they used Hitlers yachts for this. 
or it was picked from the countless planes left behind. 
Anyone knows what it is and what it might be worth. I can get it but I want to pay a fair price. He do not care much, but he is a friend and I want to give what it might be wirth

It's an EZ6 Direction Finder Receiver:

This is a receiver, part of the Geman “PEIL G 6″ aircraft installation called  “Peil Gerat 6″.

It was used for navigation/direction finding purposes in large aircrafts like the Heinkel HE 111, Junker 88 and so on. It was common for EZ6, to be combined with the Fug 10, where it would have been placed instead of the E10L receiver. This was called the Fug10P (Peil).

Please do not attempt to power it up until someone competent has checked up the capacitors and replaced the faulty ones. Otherwise you risk damaging the receiver.

I am in contact with a restoration team on a JU 88 

They seem to need one.  So this looks like a donation

It is a friend of mine who has it. I spent a while trying to figure out if he could make money selling it. And if so I would buy it just for my general aviation interest, of witch he has none. But I know North Norway flight museum have a JU 88 that is going to be pristine once finnished. And have contacted them. If they need it. I will make my friend donate it. And maybe get a cockpit tour as a payment

And hopefully will post a lot of pics here. Would be very interesting, to see some interior pics, as they are pretty rare, from what I found so far.

Well I feel obligated to forward a formal note of gratitude to you from a Major in Norwegian air force. 
He is in charge of restoration of a JU 88 

and they lack this directio finder reciever. 
I have now put my mate in touch with him and the receiver has found a home. 
I feel very good about this, but I had to admit to myself that I really did not do anything else than getting info from this wonderful community and very often from you @LukeFF I wrote this to this Major , and he told me to thank you. 
Best regard 

Finn Otto
