Special Forces Radio Antenna

Recommended Posts

You just never know what is going to turn up at a show. The fellow I got this from, got it in a load of surplus electronics. A mobile antenna for a PSC 3, unfortunatly without the tripod. Odd, but I like antennas so...

For those who aren't familiar with it, this antenna is for a portable radio system that can use satellite or "line of sight" (LOS) communications. Shown above is the satellite antenna. The Army and the Marines used these. Here's how the Marines described it:

 

"The AN/PSC-3 is a battery-operated, portable, communications terminal which contains the

RT-1402A/G, Receiver-Transmitter. It provides two-way communications

in the frequency range of 226 MHz to 400 MHz in both satellite and LOS

modes of operation. "

 

This system could be carried in the standard ALICE pack.
