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.

More photos of this type of radio in use with the Wehrmacht here: http://www.desyatnik.com/photos/torn_fu_b1_c_f_h_k.php
