US Army Signal Corps Field Phone . FLU6148cxcc


United States Army Signal Corps EE-8 Field Phone with canvas case with strap. Black bakelite plastic field telephone handset. Size of case approximately 9 1/2 inches X 7 3/4 inches X 3 1/2 inches. I believe this is a 1940s-1960s era (WW2 – Vietnam). This is untested and not selling as working condition (selling as a collectable for display use). This is a fairly heavy item. Very worn condition.


Additional Notes: The US Army EE-8 field phone was utilized from approximately 1935 to the Vietnam War. The maximum transmission distance was about 7 miles, using a wired line. The EE-8 uses D cell batteries to power the electric signal that sends the signal through the wire to the other phone. It uses a hand-cranked dynamo to generate the charge that signals the phone on the other end of the line. The field phone is contained in its own canvas custom satchel with integral winder on the side. The phones are contained in a case measuring approximately 9 1/2 inches x 7 3/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches and weighing about 9 3/4 pounds.
