History of the Squad Radio


So, how this it was beginning? I am sure that lots of hams do not any imagine of the first handie talkie portable radio…. For this time of MOTOROLLA, KENWOOD, ICOM (and so on) we completely forget the fairly days when almost every country made the own military handie talkie portable radio. The report describes some of the ancient mobile devices.



Requirement for Radio Set AN/PRC-6  were formally stated in March 1945 Intended primarily as a replacement for Radio Set SCR- 536, the PRC-6  was to be used as a means of communication between foot troops of the most forward elements (company platoon) and between infantry and close support armored elements. This new set had to be compatible with Radio Sets SCR- 300 and GRC- 3 through 8 (B) and had to have a range of 300 yards in jungle and 1 mile in rolling terrain.

The Book is taken from :  is a completely free and open resource for radio restoration information. Our goal is information preservation, not control and restrictions. We want you to copy and duplicate these manuals anywhere you wish, the point here is to make these manuals so easy to find on the internet, that no one would bother to buy a CD or try some CIA/MI-6 scheme of authentication to allow you to have something that is PUBLIC DOMAIN. That's right citizens, US Military manuals are all Public Domain!... copy them - all of them... put them on your own site, put them on your friend's site, copy them to a thumb drive and send to your Aunt Minnie, whatever. Selling them or restricting access is *wrong*, that's why we're making it easy for everyone to get them - for free! You can help to keep our site at the top of search engines by linking back to us.
