FM enthusiasts, Peter Millett has a wonderful freely downloadable repository of technical books at

Peter has provided space on his web site for my scan of the three volumes of "Die Röhre im UKW empfanger".  This book is In German, but the scan quality is adequate for use with German OCR from Google, which can then be pasted into Google-translate.

This book may be familiar to the forum, as it is a frequent source of material for Herr Hans Knoll and Prof Ing. Dietmar Rudolf in recent discussions about triode mixers in FM radios and related topics. I was introduced to this book by these gentlemen. Herr Knoll used this book as a reference when he was designing Grundig Tube Radios on the 1960's.

Please feel free to use any material from these scans in this forum, or anywhere else.

The following is an excerpt from Peter Millett's page for the free download of this book.

This German-language book is a very thorough treatment of FM receiver design. Split into three volumes, the first covers FM detection, the second mixers for FM receivers, and the third IF amplifier stages for FM receivers.

With many thanks to Peter Millett (,

Best regards.

Das dreibändige Werk
Die Röhre im UKW-Emfänger von Afred Nowak, Rudolf Cantz, & Wilhelm Engbert, 1959
ist eine umfassende Quelle zum Verständnis der Arbeitsweise eines UKW-Empfängers: im ersten Band wird auf die Demodulation von FM - Aussendungen, im zweiten Band auf Mischer in FM-Empfängern und im dritten Band auf ZF-Verstärker zum Einsatz in FM-Empfängern eingegangen.

Unser U.S.-Mitglied Joe Sousa hat die Werke in verdankenswerter Weise gescannt und stellt sie auf der Website eines Freundes zum Download bereit:
Vorsicht: grosse Dateien 47 - 66 MB!

Viel Vergnügen bei der Lektüre & besten Dank an Joe Sousa
