2013 MRCG Event After-Action Report

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.

While it has some civilian modifications like a roll bar (not that it would help too much in a roll-over, as it’s bolted to the body, not the frame), it’s not too badly hacked up.

TM 11-2300-350-15-1: Installation of Radio Sets AN/GRC-106 in Truck, 1/4-Ton, 4 by 4 M38A1

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.
