In the year 1935, the wireless station Telefunken Stat 272 Bs has been evaluated
by the Swiss Army as a possible successor of the very outdated Swiss Army wireless
equipment dating from the twenties.
In 1931, Telefunken did develop a portable wireless set with 5 Watts output power,
consisting of the 5W-transmitter Spez 469 Bs and the receiver Spez 445 Bs, both
portable "backpack" sets, the whole station was known as Kleinfunkgeraet a or
Fu 9 . The German eingineers preferred separate receivers and transmitters in these
A similar set with a combined transceiver in one "backpack" was the 15 Watts
transceiver Sendeempfaenger SE469A, Telefunken designation Stat 272 Bs, it has
been in use by the German police. An improved variant, the SE528S / Stat 272S has
been introduced with the German Navy.
An export variant of the Stat 272 under the Telefunken designation Stat 1002 Bs
consisting of the transceiver Ase 211 covering the
frequency range of 3 - 5 MHz, abattery case Spez 992 Bs,
and a pedal-driven electric generator has been ordered by the Swiss Army and has
been produced locally at Telefunken Zürich in 1935 - 1946, this set got the
Swiss designation "Tragbar Leicht ("portable light")
/ TL" resp. SE-210.
The wireless set "TLA" was nearly identical, but had a different frequency
range of 2,0 - 3,33 MHz. This set with Telefunken designation Stat. 1011 Bs,
consisting of the transceiver Ase 3017, battery box and pedal-driven generator
has been used by Artillery units and has been introduced 1942 / 1944.
In 1942, new antennas have been added, in 1951 a mains power supply
NG TL" which provided all necessary voltages for heaters and plates
and could also be used to charge the accumulators in the battery box,
produced by Zellweger (Uster), has been added. Make sure never to run the TL with
power supply NG TL without having a 6V accumulator properly installed.
Under their new designation SE-210 / SE-211,
the TL wireless sets have been in service as standby transceivers in the units
equipped with the SE-222 well into the sixties and have been faded out in 1980,
nearly half a century after their first evaluation.

|Battery Case Spez992Bs
below the drawer with the accessories, You find the switch for charging the accumulators
and normal operation. Underneath, there is space for the three 60V plate voltage
batteries and at the left, the space for the 6V iron - nickel - accumulator.
|Mains Power Supply NG TL
provides all necessary voltages for filaments and plates and accumulator charging,
never run the TL with the mains power supply without a 6V accumulator installed.
The antenna tuner AI 3021 has originally been stored in a different case.
