    Ladies and Gents :

    thought I would not keep this secret to myself any longer. Have been doing research on the German night fighter arm for well over 35 years now as many of you already know. I would like to introduce to you, Peter Eichner's funkbase. Herr Eichner worked for the electronic firm Telefunken in the 1950's-1960's and was one of their top technicians. Peter was very fortuante to purchase all the archival materials of the late Fritz Trenkle who during his time of authorship, published as many as 15 books on airborne as well as land-based radar systems of the Third Reich. Check out Peter's extensive web-site and go through it when you have a bit of time on your hands. You will be very impressed with his documentation and publications that he has already produced.

    www.funkbase.net

    By the way he speaks and writes English but is a bit hard to reach at times......

    Enjoy ! ;)

    Try reloading/refreshing at least 3-5 times. It is actually a big site and sometimes it will not even come up for me. Bookmark it anyway. His personal e-mail had the badtrans virus but he dumped that and is on a new provider.

    viele Gl├╝ck !

    [​IMG] not as long as I can help it.....enough of that s*** as far as I am concerned..... [​IMG] :eek: :eek:

    Ok, work on that site slowly. There is pretty tremendous material on that site and I think he has included some cool graphics/fotos of some of the WW 2 aircraft radio receivers and transmitters and part of his massive library/reference collection.

    Salute und Prosit ! to the Ritterkreuztr├Ąger

    rest in peace.

    Yes, the site comes up slowly and some of his pages are a real bear to get loaded. He needs an upgrade as well......
