PRC-126 Radio
« on: May 06, 2018, 12:32:04 PM »
Finally got my hands on working PRC-126 Squad Radio; only thing missing was a BA-5588 battery ,but thanks to the evil eBay empire, I found a working battery a few weeks ago & tested it out - radio works AOK; carried a PRC-126 as a 60mm Mortar Squad Leader during Desert Shield/Storm & though til 1995.

You can see the PRC-126 on my webgear in this photo; laid out all my gear in January 1991 & it took two pictures on my trusty 110 camera to fit everything in!

AIRBORNE! [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Chris,

Very nice!  Must be a good feeling to acquire an item/gear that you once humped around.  Nice score, good for you.
