Last weekend, the 18th annual meeting of the Military Radio Collectors Group was held in San Luis Obispo, California, at Camp San Luis Obispo’s NCO club. The event included equipment displays, presentations, field operations and a swap meet. I had a great time, and nearly every other comment I heard about this year’s meet was positive. I’m already looking forward to next year’s annual meeting, as well as the occasional field events we’ll probably have throughout the year.

Thanks go to Ken Perkins for the scans, and Wes Knettle for passing them along to me.
This page contains links to scanned images of a 1966 installation manual which describes the “correct” way to install radio set AN/GRC-106 in the M38A1 truck. Each page was scanned at 150 DPI and saved as a GIF image. This is the complete manual; the original was unbound, without any cover. The original was fairly blurry, so some pages are difficult to read.
Here are a few pictures I took at the 1999 Military Radio Collector’s Group meeting at Camp San Luis Obispo in San Luis Obispo, CA. This meeting was held on Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1, 1999. The 2000 MRCG meeting will be held on Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6, 2000.
