I've mounted the Tri 117 to the lower radio deck in my hmmwv. Connected it up to a shakespear 30-512 mhz military surplus antenna. Works great! Practically plug n play.As soon as I can find amount for the 117F it'll be installed in my HMMWV. I think the mounts for the PRC-138 and 150 might work but can't fine any of them either. I do have a 117D in it's vehicle mount but it's too deep to put on the HMMWV radio shelf. If you ever see a mount for the 117F I'm interested.
What kind of modifications need to be made to make the h250 work with a tri 117? The only problem with my setup is the speaker on the surplus handset won't work with the tri radio.You can use the H-250 handset with modification to the pins/wiring. I bought one and it is doing a descent job- for the money I rather buy an ICOM as it would be a $300 radio and not a $45 radio that looks likes a $5000 radio.
However, IF you are looking to play a mil part and need to communicate to couple of miles the 6 pins model will be a good alternative.
Chief,Well the TRI AN/PRC-152 UV IPX7 works very well and as for the programing it's not bad I bought the hand Microhone for it and work just fine and they put a resistor on wire PIN A & E the blade antenna works very well as a test on vhf & uhf
as for the TRI AN/PRC-117G UV this radio is works very well and hard to get them due to high sales of them I just bought my 2nd one and waiting for it to be shipped out also I bought the VRC-103 Shock Mount to mount in my CUCV.
as for the TWO radios able to talk to each other well it gets the job done, also the AN/PRC-117G works with all of the Mil
accessories and tried it with every thing and all works with it.
So the TRI AN/PRC-117G is it my choice for all out comms as for the TRI AN/PRC-152-UV make shure you get options IPX7 and in the news on the prc-152 they are going to incorporate a GPS and updating it circuit board to be more like the 117 and alot easier to program it PRC-152 programming Cable it took awhile to get to work but the radio uses BAOJIE UV88 software and it is a PITA if you get a genuine TRI AN/PRC-152 UV IPX7 and the AN/PRC-117G UV these radios work very well one radio o bought through on a popular auction site that every one knows it and i wont buy from them again.
I went right to the distributor who sell them out right.
