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 (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)

Last operational?[edit]

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)

Totally agree, saw one operating at a field day in upper Austria in 2014, definitely not from Bletchley park! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:09, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
