Morse code printer UV200a
Uhren- & Apparatefabrik W. Moser - Baer, Sumiswald
überarbeitet am 21.5.2013
In the fourties, Moser Baer, Sumiswald, produced high speed telegraphy equipment consisting of a tape punching machine (a keyboard perforator), a punched tape transmitter and a morse code printer. The precision mechanics company Moser Baer does still exist nowadays, today the Mobatime company producing the famous Swiss railways clocks is a successor of the original company.
The Morse Code printer UV200a is part of a high speed transmitting system constructed by Moser Baer in the fourties. It is still unclear wo which high speed telegraphy system this printer did belong to, it seems never to have seen use with the Swiss Army.
Morse code printer ist used to print the morse signals of a high speed telegraphy signal,
which is too fast to be copied by ear, to a paper tape. The paper tape can be translated
from morse code into clear language at a later time.
I would be interested very much in additional information about where and how this equipment has been used, the colour of the cabinet and written information about the use of high speed telegraphy in the Swiss Army leave the impression that this equipment has been used outside Switzerland.
