HUMOR, ???


      By Alan D. Tasker  WA1NYR <>

There are a number of instances where the portable RT (Receiver/Transmitter) unit forms the basis of a number of nomenclatured systems (i.e. AN/PRC, AN/VRC, AN/GRC, etc.).  The RT unit can, for instance, be attached to a vehicular mount that allows it to run on vehicle supplied power.  Usually there is also an associated vehicular mounted amplifier that boosts the transmitter power, and boosts audio power as well in order to drive a speaker.  Some of these systems even have a "jerk-and-run" capability, i.e. a quick way to disconnect and turn the RT into a portable again.
In a similar vein, there is an older concept where communication devices that have a primary application (mounted in a vehicle perhaps) have also a "Secondary Application" as a manpack (larger than a backpack) portable. These devices, when attached to the correct backpack frame, and when connected to the correct battery box with the correct cables, became portable.  The following is a list of these types.  There may be others.
 TBX, 2-5.8 MHz
 SCR-284/BC-654, tunable, 3.8-5.8 MHz AM, replaced by
 SCR-694/BC-1306, tunable, 3.8-6.5 MHz, replaced by
 AN/GRC-9, tunable, 2-12 MHz.
 SCR-510/BC-629, two channel, 20-27.9 MHz FM.
 SCR-610/BC-659, two channel, 27-38.9 MHz FM.
 SCR-619/BC-1335, two channel, 27-38.9 MHz FM.
 RT-70/PRC-16, tunable, 47-58.4 MHz FM.
The UHF Backpack for FAC (Forward Air Control)-Chart 3
Before the Military Aircraft Band changed to UHF, it was located in mid VHF, 100-156 MHz.  The Navy had a 10 channel portable called the MAW.  The Army had a two channel unit called the AN/TRC-7 which, apparently, in some applications, was portable (secondary application).
With the growth of civilian aviation and other services following WW II, there were some revisions made to the frequency band allocations.  The Military Aircraft Band changed to high VHF/low UHF, 225-400 MHz.  The first portables to cover this new band were the MAY (Navy) and the AN/PRC-14 (Air Force/Army); both four-channel crystal controlled units.  The MAY was a manpack unit, while the PRC-14 consisted of two main parts, a transceiver worn in the front, and a power supply with internal battery worn on the back.  They were connected with a cable, and the antenna was mounted on top of the helmet.  The synthesized (full band coverage) and partially transistorized PRC-41, another manpack unit, followed the PRC-14.
There was an effort by the Air Force during the mid 60s to develop prototype FAC units that would operate on all three tactical bands plus VHF Air.  Rather than being a single radio with four bands inside, they were actually four separate radios, each with its own battery, fastened together on a frame, but arranged so they could be separated and operated independently if desired.  Sylvania developed the PRC-71, while Bendix developed the PRC-72.  Some number of units were produced (my guess is about a hundred or so) and tested in Vietnam.  They hit the surplus market in the very early 70s, so their short life indicates to me a certain lack of success (too big, too heavy???).  Later, there was a definition of a better system, the PRC-82, with the four bands designated PRC-83 through 86.  All four radios were to be synthesized (the PRC-72 HF section was the
only synthesized unit in the previous efforts, all the others were channelized with 2 to 6 channels).  It appears that the PRC-82 venture never proceeded too far either. 
Next, the Air Force developed the AN/PRC-66; a conventional backpack mounted unit.  The Marines evidently did not want a backpack (perhaps because they envisioned an FAC with a PRC-70 (HF/VHF) or 77 (VHF only) on his back), so they went for a two piece design called the PRC-75. The radio and battery box fit into a two pocket front (belly) mounted canvas harness, and were connected with a cable. Both the 66 and the 75 were all solid state Collins Radio (USA for the 66, Toronto for the 75) designed units
employing transistors, ICs and hybrid circuits to effect as small a size as possible.
Today we have the two-band Navy/Air Force PRC-113(V)3, which covers both aircraft bands.  It allows for Air-band interoperability wherever you are, and whomever you are working with.
HF Backpacks for the Special Forces-Chart 4
There is not a lot of information on early HF units, such as the crystal controlled PRC-52, 62 and 64.  There is some evidence to suggest that some or most of the PRC-64 units (Delco)(a Special Forces replacement for the GRC-109) were converted to the PRC-64A variant that had an improved interface to the GRA-71 burst keyer (300 WPM)(see references 6 and 17).
It would appear that the first unit to reach widespread use was the partially transistorized (four tubes) synthesized AN/PRC-47.  It is actually a two man portable (the second man carried the separate Silver battery in its case, amongst other things) with quite an antenna system for the occasions when a temporary fixed station is called for.
The all-solid state PRC-74 with its variants 74A, 74B and 74C backpack units followed this.
The dual band PRC-70, born out of the PRC-42 research effort, appeared next.  It does not appear that it ever completely replaced the PRC-74.  It also appears there are still PRC-47 and 74 units in the field. 
The current HF unit is the IHFR (Improved High Frequency Radio) AN/PRC-104, with variants "A" (changed to LCD readout) and "B" (which added provisions for STAJ, Short Term Anti Jam).
Rumored to be on the horizon is the "Joint Tactical Radio."
SAR-Rescue Radios-Chart 5, PRC, URC, UCMe
The Search and Rescue function has produced at least eighteen different radio designs over the years, very prolific indeed.  Intended to be packed with life rafts/boats, ejection seats, or, if small enough, with the airman himself, these units were generally powered by Mercury batteries because of the long shelf life of this particular chemistry.  However, environmental concerns related to spent battery disposal have led the government to recently ban the further use of Mercury batteries in military systems.  It looks like Lithium batteries will inherit this role.
The Navy's AN/CRC-7 was the first two-way voice radio. Intended for life raft use, it may have been used by the Air Force as well.
While in the midst of the aircraft frequency band plan change (see discussion in FAC section above), there was a need to have the SAR radios cover both 121.5 and 243 MHz.  This made the radio rather large and heavy. The Air Force/Army went with the AN/URC-4 while the Navy went with the AN/PRC-17.  In a personal interview with a SAC Airman during this time frame, he stated that the mass of the radio was so large, and the jerk of the parachute opening so great, that "the radio and its battery ripped through the vest and kept on going upon chute deployment."
When the switch in frequencies was completed, the Air Force/Army went with the URC-11, while the Navy used the PRC-32.  Both of these operated on 243 MHz only and were much smaller than their two frequency predecessors. Since they still employed sub-miniature tubes, the battery was still big and heavy, however.
The push for a solid state unit resulted in the URC-10 (just one of many derivatives of the ACR designed RT-10) and the PRC-49.  The Navy continued on and developed the ultimate in small size85the PRC-63, the cutest little thing you ever did see.
However, the age of single frequency SAR radios had come to an end.  The number of ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter, sometimes automatically activated upon chute deployment) beacon transmissions crowding the 243 MHz frequency during battle in Vietnam proved the need for a second voice frequency, ultimately chosen to be 282.8 MHz.  (In addition, at least some of the ELTs were eventually moved to 240.1 ??? MHz.)
The Air Force developed the URC-64 four-channel device.  The Army opted instead for the URC-68, a four channel two-band (VHF/UHF) radio that allowed downed airmen to communicate directly with ground troops as well as aircraft.  Both of these were ultimately replaced by the Navy developed and improved PRC-90-2 two-channel unit (243 and 282.8 MHz), the first tri-service SAR radio.
This was followed by a COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) device from Motorola, the PRC-112.  Sporting five different frequencies, circuitry was included which allowed equipment in the SAR aircraft to develop range and bearing information (DME), certainly a great help in aiding rescue efforts.
The big news today in SAR is CSEL (Combat Survivor Evader Locator); a new Air Force managed tri-service program being run through Boeing.  Racal has the contract for the new radio, which carries the nomenclature AN/PRQ-7. It will be capable of transmitting on at least 121.5, 243, and 406.025 MHz (the COPAS-SARSAT satellite tracking SAR system).  It will also receive GPS information.  
Meanwhile, Motorola produced 1000 pieces of an interim solution for use in the hot spots around the globe.  It is called the HOOK-112, and it is a PRC-112 with an internal GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver that encrypts location data and transmits it upon demand to the SAR aircraft.
Non Tactical Portables-Chart 6
There have been a number of non-tactical portables used over the years. For the most part, these have been commercially available units (i.e. Motorola, Comco, Repco, Bendix, etc.) provisioned by the services for use all over the globe, and operating generally in the NBFM mode within some part of or all of one of the following bands8530-50 MHz, or 132-174 MHz, or 406-470 MHz. Additional numbers known to fall in this category are the PRC-23 and 24 (Army), 29 (Navy), and 59 (Coast Guard). Unfortunately, except for the PRC-127, information on this class of portables is scarce.
The Scope Shield program (AF run tri-service) is an exception.  The second effort at providing a radio that would be interoperable with standard commercial frequencies made use of the AN/PRC-126 but changed the circuitry so that either 30-88 or 130-174 MHz could be covered by exchanging modules.  This unit is the AN/PRC-128, and is an outgrowth of the early Scope Shield efforts with the PRC-68B(V) low band (the Marines also bought this one for tactical purposes) and PRC-68B(V)2 high band separate radios.  (The PRC-136 fire rescue set appears to be another derivative of the PRC-68/126  programs.)
The Scope Shield II Program then developed the AN/PRC-139 with Racal.  This radio can cover all three bands with module exchange, VHF low, VHF high,
and UHF, all NBFM.
More Racal Syncal 30,
Havent had a chance to read the last three mails, will do that this evening. but reason I am writing is I have found a local guy who can machine Syncal antenna adaptors for those who might want them. Not sure of cost just yet, but it will not be much.
Another question, know of anyone who mght have some more of those remotes for sale? I am missing the "remote" end. I finally got those manuals in and
the thing is almost stupidly simple, so it might be just as easy to build one in a nice sturdy watertight box ( to give it that MIL look.... ) .
Take care
"Beware the lollipop of mediocrity; lick it once
and you'll suck forever."
ed) the antenna adapter Tom speaks of will allow the us of standard US PRC/whip antennas.

Communications Trailer ?
   I  recently  was directed to a gentleman who has a Military Surplus Trailer that appears to be used for Communications Equipment;   the following data was obtained from the  Identification Plates on the Trailer:
             SEMI-TRAILER VAN
             ELECTRONIC 6 TON
             2 WHEEL M373A2C
             GRAMM TRAILER CORP.

BC-1000/VRC-3 Mounts ?
The BC-1000 (AN/VRC-3) when mounted in a vehicle uses what mount? I was told the FT-250, but can't see how. Was same mount used for tanks?
Ed Guzick
ed) that's a real good question and one I've pondered over for some time. As the story goes, the FT-250 was used to mount the BC-1000(with standard battery alone, and not the PE-114) in tanks. It was then used as a liaison radio with supporting Infantry in much the same way the RT-70 would be used at a later date. A vertical mount was also available for mounting the radio in landing craft, I do not know it's number, or if it ever had one. I have no idea what mount was used with the BC-1000 and it's vehicular power supply, but I do know it will not fit in an FT-250. Could the same mount as used on the landing craft have also been used in vehicles?

HUMOR, ???

To Give Someone The Bird:  Its Origin and Meaning(As If We Didn't Know)
       Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers.  Without the middle finger, it would be  impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore be  incapable of fighting in the future. 
      This famous weapon was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew."  Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, "See, we can still pluck yew!  PLUCK YEW!".   Over the years, some 'folk etymologies' have grown up around this symbolic gesture.  Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say like "pleasant mother pheasant plucker", (which is who you had to go to for the feathers used on the arrows for the longbow), the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodental fricative 'F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute are mistakenly thought to have something to do with an intimate encounter. It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird".
Heard on a Chicago radio station this morning:
Students riot at Penn State university. It seems the students became upset when they found out that all classes ended a couple of weeks ago.
The Fork
       The sound of Martha's voice on the other end of the telephone always  brought a smile to Brother Jim's face. She was not only one of the oldest members of the congregation, but one of the most faithful. Aunt Martie, as all the children called her, just seemed to ooze faith, hope and love wherever she went.  This time, however, there seemed to be an unusual tone to her words.  "Preacher, could you stop by this afternoon? I need to talk with you."  "Of course. I'll be there around three, Is that okay?"   As they sat facing each other in the quiet of her small living room,  Jim learned the reason for what he sensed in her voice. Martha shared the news that her doctor had just discovered a previously undetected tumor. "He says I probably have six months to live." Martha's words were  certainly serious,yet there was a definite calm about her.
 "I'm so sorry to . . . " but before Jim could finish, Martha interrupted.
 "Don't be. The Lord has been good. I have lived a long life. I'm ready to go.
   I  know that." "I know," Jim whispered with a reassuring nod. "But I do want to talk with you about my funeral. I have been thinking about it, and there are things that I know I want."
   The two talked quietly for a long time. They talked about Martha's favorite hymns, the passages of Scripture that had meant so much to her through the years, and the many memories they shared from the five years Jim had been with Central Church. When it seemed that they had covered just about everything, Aunt Martie paused, looked up at Jim with a twinkle in her eye, and then added, "One more thing, preacher.  When they bury me, I want my old Bible in one hand and a fork in the other.
"A fork?" Jim was sure he had heard everything, but this caught him  by surprise.  "Why do you want to be buried with a fork?"

 "I have been thinking about all of the church dinners and banquets that I attended  through the years," she explained. "I couldn't begin to count them all.  But one thing sticks in my mind."  At those really nice get-togethers, when the meal was almost finished, a server or maybe the hostess would come by to collect the dirty dishes.
 I can hear the words now. Sometimes, at the best ones, somebody would lean over my shoulder and whisper, `You can keep your fork.' And do you know what that meant? Dessert was coming!  "It didn't mean a cup of Jell-O or pudding or even ice cream.  You don't need a fork for that. It meant the good stuff, like caramel cake
or apple cobbler! When they told me I could keep my fork, I knew the best was yet to come!  "That's exactly what I want people to talk about at my funeral. Oh,
 they can talk about all the good times we had together. That would be nice. "But when they walk by my casket and look at my pretty blue dress, I  want them to turn to each other and say, `Why the fork?'

"That's what I want you to say. I want you to tell them that I kept my fork because the best is yet to come."
 I woke up early feeling depressed because it was my birthday, and I  thought, "I'm another year older" but decided not to dwell on it. So I showered and shaved, knowing when I went down to breakfast my wife would greet me with a big kiss and say, "Happy birthday, dear."
 All smiles, I went into breakfast, and there sat my wife reading the newspaper as usual. She didn't say one word. So I got myself a cup of coffee and thought, "Oh well, she forgot. The kids will be down in a few minutes they will sing Happy Birthday' and have a nice gift for me."
 There I sat, enjoying my coffee, and I waited. Finally the kids came running into the kitchen yelling, "Give me a slice of toast." "I'm late."  "Where is my coat?" "I'm going to miss the bus." Feeling more depressed than ever, I left for the office.
 When I walked in, my secretary greeted me with a great big smile and a cheerful, "Happy birthday, boss." She then asked if she could get me some coffee. Her remembering my birthday made me feel a whole lot better.
 Later in the morning, my secretary knocked on my office door and said "Since it's your birthday, why don't we have lunch together?' Thinking it would make me feel better, I said, "That's a good idea."
 So we locked up the office, and because it was my birthday, I said, "Why don't we drive out of town and have lunch in the country, instead of going to the usual place?"  So we drove out of town and went to a little out-of-the-way inn and had a couple of martinis and a nice lunch.  We started driving back to town when my secretary said, "why don't we go by my place, and I will fix you another martini?"  It sounded like a good idea, because we didn't have much to do in the office.  So we went to her apartment, and she fixed some martinis.
 After a while, she said, "If you will excuse me, I think I will slip into something more comfortable," and she left the room.  In a few minutes, she opened her bedroom door and came out carrying a big birthday cake.  Following her were my wife and all my kids.  And there I sat with nothing on but my socks.
 It is two o'clock in the morning and a husband and his wife are asleep when suddenly the phone rings.  The husband picks up the phone and says, "Hello? How the heck do I know?  What am I, the weather man?" promptly slamming the phone down.  His wife rolls over and asks, "Who was that?"  The husband replies, "I don't know, it was some guy who wanted to know  if the coast was clear."
