Initially (1936-1941), the 100W.S. was used in combination with the Kurzwellen-Empfänger a (Kw.E.a “Anton”) instead of the Torn.E.b. The Kw.E.a is beautiful super-heterodyne receiver that covers 980 kHz up to 10200 kHz with five bands. It is EASILY the best functioning of all the German communication receivers. Comparable to the Drake 2-B and Collins 51-S, it was built to a SUPERB technological standard.
It has a single IF of 250.9 KHz. There is an RV 2 P 800 pentode vacuum tube (also used in the Torn.E.b) in each of the 11 stages of the circuitry. The radio consumes about 2.2 A at 2 volt for the tube filaments, and 20-25 mA anode current at 90 volt DC. The unit is battery powered, though a power supply model NA 6 can be used for the anode voltage. The unit is big: about 69 x 27 x 35 cm (27″ x 11″ x 14″). It is also rather heavy: 42 kg (˜93 lbs), despite the die-cast chassis and front panel being made of lightweight “Silumin” aluminum-silicon alloy.
Made of aluminum, bakelite and steel, this Kw.E.a Radio Receiver is in VERY GOOD used condition! Though there are some marks, scratches and wear, it still retains much of it’s original paint! Appears to be 100%complete internally, however I have not tested it for electrical functionality. Voltmeter does not appear to be connected, and there are a couple of loose wires. Appears to have been used post-war, as one of the labels is writen in Czech. Dated 1940, I have showed one in use in the last photo. A SUPERB item for any collection or display!
