ORIGINAL, VERY RARE WWII German Luftwaffe AAG25a (Antennenanpaßungsgerät 25a) Ln28815, used in conjunction with the FuG25a IFF Radio System. This system was used on many late-war Fighters and bombers such as the Me109, Fw190, Ju88, Ju87, Me262, Me-163, He162 and other German aircraft. he AAG25a connected directly to the SE25 radio Sending Unit. Both were part of the main FuG25a Radio System, which allowed for air-to-air communication, as well as air-to-ground. Working like a modern IFF (Identification Friend or Foe), it was equipped in most late-war German aircraft. Working on the same frequency as the main radios, it sent a signal allowing radar stations and other aircraft to differentiate between friendly and enemy aircraft/formations. It had limits unfortunately, and could only be used in close-vicinity. Made of aluminum, steel, and bakelite, this antenna is in EXCELLENT, WORKING condition!
