    You are correct, see
    
      http://www.uboataces.com/radar-warning.shtml
    
    for devices signalling the approach of Allied submarine hunters.
    
    The common name of these devices was FuMB, an abbreviation of "Funkmessbeobachtungsgeräte".

    In the fascinating U-boat logbook, I see several references to "Borkum" - as in:
    Fu.M.O. continuously manned with Borkum all around sweep every 5 minutes.
    In addition to "Borkum", I find "Fu.M.O." cryptic, though from context it may be 
    a reference to a radar set.  Have I guessed right?
