AFN Thurndorf


Last year I didn't win an eBay auction, the seller had a second one of these.  AFN Thurndorf?
This has been driving me crazy for a while.  AFN Historian John Provan clears it up a bit:
 
I checked my files and AFN never had a place called Thurndorf. Whoever made this goofed AFN had a location at Thumsdorf, which belonged to AFN Bayreuth. It began in October 1945 and probably operated until November 1946. It is even listed on many German radios as being a real station. It was not, rather it transmitted the AFN Munich programming.
