Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

To what purpose is this radio being put?
Obviously the German army is involved but is it for broadcasting from the field or communicating between units?

In this context nachrichten means : signal unit.
Looks like a standard German field radio for coms between units.

Thanks, guys!  I used Google translate and it came up with news crew but I didn't think the German Army was that involved with news propigation with the news in nazi Germany! 

Would an officier be involved in transmitting radio traffic? (that's a private on the right, correct?)

Nachrichtentruppe is not exactly "news crew" (though "Nachrichten" is "news" nowadays), in military context a "Nachricht" simply means a "message", so the caption uses the old word for "Communications Formation" (later: "Fernmeldetruppe").
