The Hellschreiber is named after its inventor Rudolf Hell. "Light Pen" is completly wrong and has no meaning at all (also in German). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 07:03, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Hellschreiber is the correct spelling.
Amazing. I look a couple weeks ago, no Hellschreiber. Excellent work. Too bad it's still pretty rare on the ham bands... Jdos2 03:12, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
I just stumbled across this article... I'm quite sure that there are lots of original WW2 Hellschreibers around. In working condition. Some time ago (a year?) I had a chance to play with a machine like in the picture. And it worked - of course. Not easy to type... But in every case: Bletchley's is not the last. Hachti (talk) 03:49, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
