How many FDK 2700 Multi’s were made?
I don’t know. However, during World War II a similar problem was poised with the Wehrmacht Tiger Tank. As a formidable fighting weapon Britain was concerned about how many of these fighting vehicles they might be up against. Some mathematicians were tasked to work this out, and history has now labeled this The German Tank problem.
“Alex”, you say, “what has this got to do with Amateur Radio?”
Well the same problem came up with the Drake 2B recently. A group of enthusiasts were wondering how many Drake 2b transceivers were made. Using the same process and analysis of the serial numbers the likely number was arrived at.
So if we can collect the serial numbers of those radio’s still in existence we can make a good effort to work the answer out. But I’d need to hear from you with your serial number.
