You are bidding on an EXTREMELY RARE example of a 100% original WW2 German Wehrmacht / Luftwaffe Fu5 Radio Antenna Mounting Plate! This was used in various Tanks and Tank Destroyers! Also used in ground applications with the Luftwaffe.
The FuG 5 Radio was a high-band HF/low-band VHF transceiver. It operated in the 27,000 to 33,300 kHz (27-33.3 MHz) frequency range with a transmission power of 10 Watts. This equipment provided for 125 radio channels at 50 kHz channel spacing. It was usually used with a two-metre antenna. It was present in almost all German tanks, and was the standard kit for tank-to-tank communication within platoons and companies. The range was approx 2–3 km when using AM voice and 3–4 km when using CW. Reworked to produce the FuG 5 (Luft) variant which was used for air-to-ground communication until replaced with the FuG 7.
Used to affix the main antenna mount, this item is in EXCELLENT used condition! Still retains some slight traces of the original paint…with NO damage! This came to me with the rubber mount shown in the last photo. Some slight marks, wear, and pitting, due to the age. Not sure which vehicle this was mounted on. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
Please note that the rubber mount shown in the last photo is NOT part of this auction. It is shown for reference only!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
