[kl-bogel] The oldest radio station in Germany (31 photos)

There is still no consensus about who is it that first invented the radio. In 1864 the British physicist James Clerk Maxwell proved theoretically the existence of electromagnetic waves. In 1887 the German scientist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz confirmed this theory experimentally, and first began to study their properties. He is first able to construct the first working radio transmitter and receiver. In 1893, the great inventor Nikola Tesla created the world's first wave transmitter. In 1895, Russian scientist Alexander Popov invented the first device capable of receiving radio signals in the form of Morse code. A first patent in the field of radio was a radio technician in 1896, an Italian entrepreneur and Guglielmo Marconi. At the root of the radio were also the French scientist Edouard Brundle and Englishman Oliver Joseph Lodge.

The first radio broadcasts were made after more than twenty years. In Germany, the birthday of the radio is December 22, 1920, to this day, the first radio broadcasts from radio stations Christmas concert in Brandenburg, Königs Vusterhauzene. That's where we go.

Now broadcasting station building on the mountain (in German Funkberg) in Koenigs-Vusterhauzene (German König Wusterhausen) is a museum. In just a few euros you can plunge into the world of radio. It is noteworthy that the first letters of the town form the acronym HF, ie, the short waves.



Such was once the "Broadcasting Mountain."



The building at number one and is the oldest radio station in Germany.



Today it looks like.



Of radio masts, only one survived. Not the tallest (210 feet).





Struck by a pointed base. The unusual design.



Some details of museum exhibitions.



From childhood. The first radio that I saw in my life, was the standard Soviet. He paddles in our kitchen in hrushevke, he had either two, or three buttons on top for switching waves and volume control. He is still connected to a separate small outlet. We also have a radio, "Horizon," which I loved to listen to a child. Especially since he already had a lot of buttons, switches and settings. But most of all I was impressed by the so-called radiograms. These devices combine in a single package radio and electrophone for playing records. One such device was a floor at my grandparents. Sometimes my grandfather would lie on the sofa and asked me to put a plate together so listened to, was great. I was smart, a child was guided in the art.

In one of the premises radio station collected a decent collection of old receivers.



In technical areas.



Central control.



In another building in the "mountains" in the day held an annual flea market of radio. Attended by judges from all the district.



In conclusion I want to show the photo the palace-Koenigs Wusterhausen (German: Schloss Königs Wusterhausen), the territory of which took place some ceramic fair, and fun city detail.



For today.



And what are your memories of the radio? What is the role it plays in your life now?
