    Geoff,
    PM'd you, but both the 320 and the FFR 321 were excellent sets and simple to use compared to the A41 old sets. Far greater range and a MUST if you are a HAM radi enthusiast.
    I think MOD made a big mistake putting these out to civvy purchase, but heyho it will be like the SA80 they'll be hunting people down one day who own one of these two sets they are that good.
    Batteries with everything Military always take a back seat but some thought as Peter alluded to, was made when they designed these.

    Thanks Gil, PM received, one good thing about the clansman range is the 24v battery, was standard for all the Portable radios, as I've got a 351 inbound too, I got 5 new batteries on ebay for next to nothing.

    The 320,321 have dried up regarding surplus ones, as they were as you say popular with the Ham Radio due to the frequency 1.8 -30 Mhz and also the Land Rover FFR guys wanting to fit them out, plenty still about about but the average for a 320 when first on the market was around £60 and the 321 around £100 compared to now 320 = £200 -£400 and 321= £400 +

    Some still about with surplus dealers who don't have the testing facility (were I got the 321 from ) but are sold untested.

    Plenty of the 351's about etc due to the higher frequency 30-70 Mhz, if anyone is confused by the numbers etc then the lin below explains what was what, the Guy was ex REME.

    Brilliant radios especially if you collect the whole series including the masts. Sent on an enforced Sigs Course to Hull once. I thought I had been rubber dicked as an NCO but I have to say it was the most interesting course and hard, theoretically I have ever done. Got back to the Battalion and posted straight to Intelligence ready for NI ha ha!! What a waste but we took every set apart and made sure we ALWAYS got maximum range by the techniques shown us, and it did come in handy in some parts of the border region of NI especially when you needed a chopper fast.
    Shame they weren't around for Arnhem in the day
