Radio-Phono Fernseh Katalog radio-phono television catalog Original catalog prices are in DM Deutsche Marks. My particular Reims unit which is not shown in these photos has the following push buttons: 0, T1, T2, 49, 31, 25, When the zero button is pushed, the Reims converter is inactive, and one will be able to tune any station on the AM band.
Then, fine tuning on the SW bands is done by changing the AM dial knob. This way, one can find SW stations on different meter bands. The different push buttons on the Reims correspond to different SW bands. Fine tuning allows reception of all SW stations which were broadcast on designated waves, for example the Deutsche Welle was on the 49 meter band, and the BBC could be found on the 19 meter band.
I do not know what the T1 and T2 buttons mean. I was wondering if they must be pushed together with other buttons. I tried that, but got no results.
The Reims is connected to the radio via the coaxial wire of the antenna. It is connected between the radio and the antenna. Looking at the power supply, one can see a place to connect the Reims to it. When connected to the power supply, one insures that the Reims will be turned off once the radio is switched off.
I connected the Becker Europa radio to the Reims short-wave converter, and was able to tune into some distant SW stations. I believe it was a great invention for that time, because the listener can shift from one band to the other just by changing the circuitry, thus picking up a different range of signals through the same antenna. As my father told me, short-wave was mainly used in Europe and a bit in the Middle East. My Type b Ponton sedan came with the Reims adapter.
I believe that was a rare option for a car destined to be used in Lebanon. This justifies the story told to me that my car was purchased from Gargour Mercedes-Benz agent in Beirut, still in business today by the US embassy in Lebanon in I never believed that, but now I think he might have had a point because maybe the US embassy employees would use SW more than ordinary people.
Becker Reims short-wave adapter and cable to the power supply under the speaker cabinet of a Mercedes-Benz Ponton cabriolet. Also note the unusual floor mounted shift lever. The unit was mounted below the speaker cabinet in front of the power supply. In the regions where they were intended to be used, both the power supply and radio tuner have a socket for the Reims short-wave adapter plugs. See the Links page for their website.
These are still available, but expensive. April 30, Walter Odemer, Co. Burbank, California , who specializes in Becker, Blaupunkt and other vintage radio repair and sales, sells the Hirschmann red tip antennas including the motorized version.
The SL Auto Haus also sells them. Hint: It really pays to shop and compare prices. See the Links page for contact information. Catalog illustration: Radio-Phono Fernseh Katalog
