AN/PRR-9 VIETNAM ERA RADIO RECEIVER

This was introduced in 1967 to replace the ANN/PRC-6. It was a radio for squads or platoons. This radio system consisted of a helmet-mounted receiver, the AN/PRR-9. It also utilized a shirt-pocket transmitter, the AN/PRT-4.

The contractor DELCO produced 47,000 of these units from 1967 until 1971. Only the AN/PRR-9 is offered in this auction. I no longer find the original antenna, so I put on it an antenna that was lying around. That replacement antenna is included. I have no way to test this unit so it is AS-IS.

During Vietnam era, transistors and integrated circuits replaced tubes on the battlegrounds. Thus lightening the load for the foot soldier.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Frequency: 47-57MHz, crystal controlled, 1 channel, for helmet/pocket/harness use, 6VDC from BA-505/U battery, 11oz. with battery (not included) Used with AN/PRT-4 and AS-1998, TM 11-5820-549-12/35.
