General Description

The E-16 was part of the FU G-16 transceiver used in the Heinkel He 111. This set was used for VHF communication over the frequency range 38 - 42 MHz.

These units were manufactured by Lorenz A.B. in 1942. The construction represents the peak of quality production. Examples manufactured after this date show a severe drop in component quality and overall standard. The unit is constructed on a die-cast aluminium sub-chassis. The dial is accurately calibrated and set up for rapid 4 channel click-stop frequency selection.

These receivers were similar to the Lorenz EBL2 beam receiver, which was used with "Knickebein" to accurately locate targets over the United Kingdom.

Technical Data

The set was built using modular construction methods and the receiver featured the same valve type throughout to simplify replacement problems. The set uses 9 type RV12P2000 tubes and a neon stabilizer.

The set used an RF stage, 3 IF stages, detector, AGC and a single audio tube.

The set could be used with 12 or 24vdc filament strings. The HT was 210 volts at 35 ma. Filaments at 24v drew 375 ma.
