DKE 38 was introduced in 1938 at a very affordable price of 35 RM which was only about 25% of monthly salary of an average German worker. No wonder why German Mini-Receivers became so widespread. 

DKE was regenerative single tuned circuit receiver with LW and MW broadcast bands. Band change was done automatically by rotating the tuning knob. DKE receivers could be powered by both AC and DC. Further DKE modifications were DKE 43 and DKE 44. 

The DKE was manufactured by AEG, Braun, Blaupunkt, Brandt, Emud, Graetz, Grassmann, Hagenuk, Körting, Lorenz, Lumophon, Mende, Nora, Philips, Saba, Sachsenwerk, Schaleco, Schaub, Seibt, Siemens, Stassfurt, Tefag, TeKaDe, Telefunken, Valvo, Wega (all from Germany), Eumig, Hornyphon, Ingelen, Kapsch, Minerva, Radione, Zerdik (all from Austria). Manufacturer's name could be found only at the rear wall of a VE 301 receiver.
