The authors have conducted worldwide radio communications within the framework of amateur radio over three decades, thereby becoming acquainted with the often extreme demands that message receivers should be able to cope with, and analysing over 70 radio message receivers or receiver parts of transceivers in the process.
For anyone who collects such equipment or wants to learn how it works, the functional diagrams compiled here will provide the best possible help. The extensive bibliography and list of sources open up numerous avenues for more in-depth study or the procurement of documents.
Gesellschaft der Freunde der Geschichte des Funkwesens (GFGF) e.V. (Hrsg.)
The history of technology is cultural history. This is particularly true for the history of radio, because it revolutionised global communication more than 100 years ago. From the very beginning, technology developed rapidly. There was a danger that much of the knowledge that became obsolete after a short time would be forgotten. Therefore, as early as the beginning of the 1970s, there were first initiatives to record the history of radio and to preserve it for posterity. Later, the Gesellschaft der Freunde der Geschichte des Funkwesens (Society of Friends of the History of Radio, GFGF e.V.) emerged from this.
The association GFGF e.V. emerged in 1978 from the Funkhistorischer lnteressenkreis (Radio History Interest Group), which was initiated by Karl Neumann in 1972, when he realised that in today's age of high technology, the knowledge of the beginnings of radio technology as well as the preservation of the existing stock of technical artefacts and equipment had hardly been a concern of public institutions or the respective manufacturing companies. In the meantime, fortunately, there has been a certain change of heart. The realisation that the history of technology is also part of cultural history is gaining ground, albeit hesitantly. Nevertheless, there is still much to be done in this field today and in the future.
