Nora k3wa, German made radio from the late 1920's

Post by Pimein on Tue Mar 11, 2014 12:13 pm

I have a question concerning this old german radio from the late 1920's. Can you tell me anything about this radio? I found this link:
http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/nora_k3wa.html, but I would need to know what has been the purpose of this radio. Has it been made as a regular household radio? And what are the plugs in the front for? Any information and help is highly appreciated, thank you! " />

Welcome to TRF. To me it looks like an early form of military receiver.
Those connections are undoubtedly for batteries, ear phones, atenna, ground, etc.....
With no markings, or, anything else, and, looks like it's all in German, I don't know what to say.
Welcome to TRF.

If there were clearer pictures of the labels, you could use the online Babel Fish translator to figure out what was intended for operation/connections.

Based on the info provided by the radiomuseum link, the unit was offered for sale in 1929.  It shows a sales description of the unit saying it has a built in mains power supply with selectable input voltages.  It also says it comes with a set of headphones.  I would guess a not quite domestic radio, more along the line of a amateur radio reciever.
