    Does anyone on the forum know what Harris does to the H-250 to make it into their "modified" version? Is it merely removing the metal components around the PTT switch to reduce the chance of shock?

    I'm looking for a copy of TM 11-5820-398-35 for the PRC-25 that has the alignment for the A9 VFO module that DOES NOT tell you to press S2 and S3 during the alignment.

    PRC-138 into a Sincgars MT-6576 mount

    I have been running an RT-1439 in my M996A1 ambulance for years now and recently decided to update to a PRC-138. I didn't want to outright replace the 1439 and and didn't want to add another mount because of space considerations and reasoned I could come up with a way to mount the 138 into the...

    HMMWV Battery replacements

    I recently replaced the batteries in my M996A1 and after years of using Interstate 6TLs that only lasted about 28 months I decided to go with 24Fs. They are the same height and length as the 6TLs but a couple inches narrower so you can use your old battery hold down bracket with them. They...

    Turn signal switch LED failures

    I've worked on converting vehicles to LED lighting for some time now and something strange that keeps popping up is the bulb in the turn signal switch is hot on the case and grounded on the tip of the bulb. This is irrelevant to an incandescent lamp but puts reverse power on an LED and they...

    Does anyone on the forum know if the wiring to the AJ-107 connectors on the bailout cords is standardized or is it left to the whim of the manufacturers? I'm trying to find out if the General Dynamics bailout cords are compatible with the ones used with the Racal Raptor headsets.
