    DEUCE BRAKE LINE REFERENCE GUIDE (Sizes, lengths, fittings)

    I got a quote and made a purchase from Iris Industries, Inc. today for a gallon on DOT 5. It was $72.35 shipped ground to 55123 for a gallon - still a great price. They still want payment by personal check, and they are quick to respond to email inquiries. Thanks again for the referral...

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    Hey Dave. We made a long weekend of our West Coast trip and got back late in the evening on Monday, June 7. I missed the last three WI shows but will be at this year's WI show. Where will you be set up?

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    Ok, here's an update. Doug at Pvt. Jarhead did respond to my e-mail, and they are still in business. He had a good RT-524 for sale at $400 + shipping, but I already made a deal with a seller in one of my Facebook groups. So, Pvt. jarhead still has one if anyone is looking. I made postings to...

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    I did send Doug at Pvt. Jarhead a message a few days ago, and I received an auto-response that said, "We will not be answering emails from May 21 through May 25." So, it will be interesting to see if they are still in business. I bought a couple things from him a few years ago. I have an...

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    Yep. That would be great if I can find one sort of close. However, I suspect I'll have to climb a mountain, fight through a forest fire, battle grizzly bears, and give my left nut to find one.

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    Thanks Guyfang. The Reforger listing is no longer available as is the Army Radio Sales listing. I already have an R442 unit, so I'm not exited to pay two grand for a 524 + 442 package. No luck on the Greek eBay (or for any RT-524 listed in all of Europe). I'll keep looking. Thanks again.

    Where to find a complete, working RT-524

    Does anyone know where I can find a complete, working RT-524 for sale? I have an active search on eBay that hasn't turned up anything. I called Fair Radio Sales, emailed Pvt. Jarhead, and looked on sites like Murphy's Junk. I made posts to a few groups on the facebooks, but nothing has turned...

    Yes, Reco Defense did have some as of two months ago. Good recommendation.

    Canvas cover for RT 246 RT524

    The cover for the RT-246 or RT-524 is part number CW-653. With that part number, you can find the NSN. Good luck with your project.

    WTB VRC-47 set CUCV

    You will probably need to piece this together one item at a time from several sources. The AN/VRC-47 used a RT-524 transceiver and R-442 auxiliary radio. So, you will need two antennas. The antenna for the R-442 can be something like the AB-15/GR base and AT-1095 antenna whip or the MS-116A...

    AB-15 Antenna Sections problem

    TM 11-5820-401-10-1 says that if any of your MS-116A, MS-117A, or MS-118A antenna sections break, you can replace all three of those antenna elements with one AT-1095/VRC. I suggest that in case you can't get those sections to work correctly.
