Here's some information that may help:-

 

For your RT-524 or RT-246 you need to find a "Cover, Canvas, CW-653/VRC (FSN

5820-082-3741)". These are not easy to get ahold of, because the Military

decided in 1983 that the canvas cover caused more problems than it

solved..... such as water retention, overheating etc........ so it ceased to

be an issue item and its use was no longer authorised.

 

Just for information, the canvas cover for the R-442 receiver is the

CW-649/VRC (FSN 5820-082-3742)

 

Kind regards.....

Ken

In my humble opinion, if it is olive drab it's worth saving!
