In naval terms it is usually a stadimeter for measuring both a bearing and rough range.
That is exactely the main DIFFERENCE between a bearing compass and a stadimeter.
However, the photo shows a bearing compass only. A bearing compass ONLY gives you your bearing. You cannot do ranging of any kind with a bearing compass alone.

Hi Sturm,

What I see on these wonderfull pictures is:
A) 2 sets of Klappenschrank zu 20 Leitungen, side by side.
B) 2 sets of "Abfragekasten zu 10 Leitungen für den großen Feldklappenschrank", stacked, on top of the right set of A;
C) A Funkeruhr, on top of B.
Basicaly- the combination represents a switchboard for up to 60 lines.

HTH,
Cheers,
Angel

Sturm 78,

Just try to search for "Telefonzentrale" and "Wehrmacht", and a lot of similar photos will show up...

Good luck for your further research! :milwink:

Used to measure wind speed and wind direction on various heights by means of tracking and plotting the movement of a weather balloon with a FM transmiter onboard.As a rule- 3 Peilanlagen were used to track the weather balloon simultaneosly(triangulation).

Hi all,

Here, an image from Ebay. Two small generators. Does somebody know the exact German designation for these equipments ?
Any idea about the manufacturer ?

Which is the exact purpose of the two small boxes to the right ?
