Description

RKK Radio Museum Story

Our Museum was established in May, 2000, after WW II 55th Victory Day celebration. We have collected a dozen of WW II vets then to our corporate office, and to decorate it some of our employees brought in several samples of WW II radios. The vets introduced an idea to start a permanent WW II radio exhibit at our company, RC & C Ltd. (in Russian - OOO FIRMA RKK).

Well, it was in line with our business, professional mobile radio systems, so the Museum was started soon. At first our exhibits had only 12 samples yet some of them were real rarities like E 52a or E 53 receivers. We have decided to strictly limit the scope of our samples by the date "1945", the year when WW II was over.

In the next four years the exhibits have remained the same and only after RC & C has moved to its new office building it was decided to start expanding the Museum. Starting June, 2004, and up to nowadays the number of WW II radios has increased about 15 times. In our 12 show boxes we have about 130 radios, 30 field telephones and other wire line military equipment and nearly 20 samples of test and measurement equipment.
 

Current Collections

The WW II radio exhibits are our main line. We have on display, WW II radios of USSR manufacture, the radios supplied to the USSR by Lend-Lease agreement from the USA, Canada and United Kingdom, as well as German Wehrmacht radios. Out of our 130 radios nearly 20% are Soviet makes, 30% are Lend-Lease supplies and about 50% are Wehrmacht radios. All of those to include troops entertainment receivers mostly of Wehrmacht. A few American "morale radios" are also present in our WW II collection.

On top of radios, we have sufficiently expanded our "wire line" collection which incorporates now not just WW II but also some WW I samples of field telephones and field telegraphs. There are pretty rare items there like a small field telephone of Russian ranger of WW I or telegraphy receiver of 1923 made in Petrograd (another name of St. Petersburg used since WW I was unleashed).

There are also some vintage home entertainment radios exhibited in RKK Radio Museum - about 60 tube radios and 40 crystal sets of 1921-1945. There are several vintage battery portable receivers on display, too.

Special attention was paid lately to German "people's receivers" (Volksempfänger) so now we have quite an impressive collection of so-called "Gemeinschaftserzeugnis" program of joint receiver's production. There are not only VE 301 and DKE receivers on display but also such rarities as DAF 1011, DOK 36 and DOK 37.
