Hindenburg Radio Room

The radio room of the zeppelin Hindenburg was located in the hull of the ship, just above the control car, and contained both long wave and short wave radios of 200 watts.

The Hindenburg's radio call sign was "DEKKA".

Technical details about Hindenburg's radio equipment can be found in an article published in Radio News in August 1936 and reproduced at the Antique Radios website.

The Hindenburg's chief radio operator was Willy Speck, who died in the crash at Lakehurst in 1937.
