I have found only very few informations about Nordmende's Globemanager, this set seems to have appeared shortly before the successful Galaxy Mesa series and has some features later found in the Galaxy Mesa 7000.
The Nordmende Globemanager is a huge portable multiband radio, with it's dimensions of 46 x 26 x 11,5 cm and it's weight of 5,5 kg it is in fact portable but not the best choice to take with You on an airplane trip. The set is a direct predecessor of the Nordmende Galaxy Mesa 7000.
All important controls can be found on the front panel of the Nordmende Globemaster,
at the rear, You find the battery and mains lead compartment. The two separate
telescopic antennas for the AM bands and the FM broadcast band, are located at
the top of the set.
The Nordmende Globemaster is simple to operate: Pull the antennas out, turn
the set on. Set to shortwave broadcast bands with the pushbutton BANDS and the select the 49 m shortwave band,
the red triangle will point to the 49m band mark, and look out for the strong
signal of Deutsche Welle, Cologne, somewhere between the 6.05 and 6.1 MHz
In summary, the Nordmende Globemanager as predecessor of the Galaxy Mesa 7000 is technologically outdatet but prestigious looking multiband shortwave radio; a Globemaster set in good condition might be a delight for the collector and a useful radio for the casual shortwave listener.
