Description:
VE301w, 3 valve regenerative radio receiver (known as a Volksempfaenger) for the reception of local stations only. The design was approved by the Nazi party, who pressured all German manufacturers to produce them in quantity. It was made cheaply and required a large aerial and could pick up a service transmitted over telephone lines in the 200metre band. This service carried air raid warnings and "news" which was in reality party propaganda.
