The Torn E.b. was first brought into service in 1935/36 and was used extensively with the German Wehrmacht, Signals, Police, and Administration Divisions. After the war it became extremely popular with collectors and used frequently within amateur radio stations and broadcasts throughout Europe.
The Torn E.B. is an adjustable, one frequency( t.r.f.) radio with four filaments, driven by a 2 volt battery at 0.2 A. each. Therefore the whole radio consumed approx. 0.8 A. of the battery.
The anode current could come from a 90 V. dry battery and was possible to generate the 2 V with the use of a vibrator unit. The vibrator unit was usually located on the lower board of the bottom cabinet. It could also be used with the current from a 12 volt car battery also in conjunction with the vibrating unit.
The set covers the frequency band 100-6970 kHz in eight ranges. The actual coverage of each sub-band is as follows:
( Band 2 ) 172-310kHz
( Band 3 ) 306-552kHz
( Band 4) 541-977kHz
( Band 5 ) 958-1720 kHz
( Band 6 ) 1685-3030 kHz
( Band 7 ) 2940-4760 kHz
( Band 8 ) 4420-6970 kHz
Made of aluminum, wood, and steel, this Torn EB Radio is in GOOD used condition! Though there are some marks, scratches, wear, and slight damage, it still retains 95% of it’s original paint! I have not tested it for electrical functionality, but it appears to be complete. All knobs and switches are functional! Outer cover has been messed with post-war…so a replacement would be needed. A nice early 1939 dated unit, it would make a SUPERB item for any collection or display!
Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.
