New Entry

I am the proud owner of an E-566 (rainbow) receiver, I revised the set and it is in original state and working 100 percent. I was a radio officer in the dutch merchant marine from 1958 until 1973 and worked with the set on various ships. Pity we don't hear any morse anymore.

A correction: Iīve immediately spotted a "small" error in my blah about the FE-52 : Please replace all "Grundig" īs with "Blaupunkt" īs ! Sorry about that ! ( Richard )

A short bit of additional history from one who used one (new!)as well as having owned one: The "Grundig" FE-52 was in fact designed & constructed 100% by Robt.Bosch in one of their W.Berlin Shops, and later sold to the US Army by "Grundig", who meerly added their logo to the front panel.The mfg/sales date was probably 1952 - Hence the "__-52". I later acquired one in the USA ( as "war surplus") for only $50(cheap!)as no one there even knew that it was a Rcvr! I had used one alongside a Collins 51-J1 for over one year here in Germany, so can verify that it was (is) easily as good and stable as the Collins. My own FE-52 worked perfectly (I rebuilt the Anode& with silicon semiconīs in the 60īs ) and it is working perfectly to this day there in So.Am.,after over 25 years in a Sub.tropical climate ! These Rcvrs were bought as sets,with a 300 W.CW/RTTY Transmitter, with the intention of leaving these sets in place - operating with them until that very last moment "after" the Russians had invaded , giving us the opportunity, meanwhile , to pack up our US made equipment ( which was mostly already truck mounted anyway ) & go out into the field ,leaving these fine sets behind to the Russians ( or blowing them up ourselves ).

Hallo, super. Ich habe Informationen bei euch über den Siemens E-66a gefunden. Solch ein Empfänger hat ein Amateurfunkfreund auf dem Recyclinghof vor der Verschrottung gerettet. Funktioniert tadellos... Vielen Dank und macht weiter so... 73 de Chris

Great Page! I worked from 1964 to 1967 in ships electronics and visited therefor often various ships, especially ofcourse the "shack" of the radio officer. There I saw the first time these receivers, al though they where mainly serviced by DEBEG. I also appreciate the photo's of the ship's and the radio huts. You did a very good job in making these profi web pages !! Ton van der Lubbe, PA0LUB, the Netherlands .

A wonderful site. I have owned well over a hundred receivers over 45 years, but recently sold most to other collectors. I had a Lagier Marine radio, many Eddystones, and too many others, including a EK-07. Still use a Skanti 5001, and have in storage a Kaar, a Dansk 203, and several Electronav EN-R2 marine receivers. I have a number of crystal controlled radios such as the TMC STR-5. Scientific Radio 206, Galaxy, Canadian Marconi, RF-Harris, etc. This is a very specialized interest! I seek a manual for the EN-R2.

Thanks so much for the site and the entry for the FE-52! I have one of these and a couple of years ago was finally able to get a manual for it from the good folks at DARC. I have hopes of restoring it to its original glory! Nice to see what it was supposed to look like when new! 73 Graham K5MPB
