Dénes do you know what the Romanian army name or designation for these radios

Thanks Yan.

The Romanian designation is in the page on the site dedicated to the signal units: http://www.worldwar2.ro/organizare/?article=32

The radio types were designated F and G, RS1 (I think that was for the radio direction finder units). The transmitter power varied from 50 W to 2 kW, depending on the model.

However, the main work horse of the Romanian signal units was still the telephone.

There is a comprehensive book which includes this subject too:

gen-lt. Enciu Gheorghe, Posta si telecomunicatiile in Romania, Editura Stiintifica si enciclopedica, Bucuresti, 1984.

You can find it on several old book selling sites.

Thanks guys, I will equip my Romanian Infantry Company with one MAN M.1933 field telephone, that Romanian site is very good and I wish I could get similar for some of the other countries, the Yugoslave army from 1941 is one which I can find little or no info about its TO&E for an infantry company.

In this photo, the radio is a Torn.Fu.b1 radio set manufactured by Lorenz in 1936.
