    Well if I could go back in time, I'd gladly give you a couple.
    The first one would be the one not properly secured in the radio rack of an M113A1 that nearly broke my leg..........it's yours.
    The second one was the one in my backpack when I leapt out of a chopper from about six feet..........done that debus dozens of times, but this was just after the change from steel beer cans to aluminium ones.
    Not a pretty sight and got some odd looks from the jumpmaster on pickup.............and I lost four cans, yep, that one is definately yours.

  6. Thank You to muffett.2008 For This Useful Post:

    How about the ones that would come up and clock you during fire and movement? You go to ground and the try to take your head off...

    That's how I remember them, that and spitting on connectors.

    Old enough to use them in training, young enough to see the replacement (PRC-117) of their replacement (TCCCS). Well flippy floppy between the TCS and 117 anyway.

    There was a little one we'd use during rail loading parties...flat and small. Wished we had it during field ops...apparently had a limited range. I guess that would be compared to a 125 set that didn't work?

    We did have the little PRR come on issue in late 2005 and it was issued to each combat soldier in '06, we would run a section net, with a PL channel loaded for emergencies. The Section commander had his PRR tied to the little PRC521with dual PTT switches for commanding the section and bothering the PL commander. It worked suprisingly well.

    Having everyone tied in to a small net makes C&C so much smoother.

    The thing that is hard to find is the original "tech manual" for either the 25 or 77 set.

    I have seen ONE hard copy in the last four decades.

    However, via the magic of the inter-tubes: http://www.radiomanual.info/schemi/S...67-12_1987.pdf

    Getting either unit tuned or repaired without this document is a nightmare.

    The original Magnesium batteries are a non-starter as well, but it should be relatively easy to cobble up something that would fit in the battery compartment. For those with the "vintage" 25 sets, you have to also ensure a low-voltage "heater" supply for the "valves" (thermionic tubes).

    The vehicle-mounted "linear amplifier" cradle/adapter is a cool bit of kit for the truly hard-core. See: http://www.associated-ind.com/pdf/ANGRC160.pdf

    For bonus points, seek out the RC-292 antenna kit. Manual here: http://radionerds.com/images/4/42/TM_11-5820-348-15.pdf
