The determination of the Reich government to bring broadcasting into every German household led to the creation of the people's receiver, VE 301. A total of 28 German radio factories build the VE 301 using a consistent standard. Its development was a joint venture of the entire German radio industry. This standardization made it possible to combine technical perfection with the greatest economy.

A neutral committee of experts guarantees the electrical and mechanical reliability of the receiver by prechecking and approving all individual parts, such as transformers, condensers, coils, cabinets, etc., as well as the finished radios. This commission includes representatives from the radio industry, the Heinrich Hertz Institute and the Reich broadcasting corporation. The quality of the receiver is continuously supervised by the same technical commission during the current mass production.

The receiver is built according to the safety regulations of the Federation of German Electrical Engineers (VDE).
