    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hey all,I went to an old carshow tonight and saw an old jeep with a radio in the back,I beleive

the old fella who owned it said it was in the Vietnam or Korean war,cant remember.This

reason why this radio caught my eye was I used to own one similar to the one pictured.The

radio and power suply must have weighed close to 100lbs together,I ended up selling it to a

guy in Kanata,Ontario.So my question is ,are there any Vets or anyone that might be able to

recognize this old monster.thanks for looking :)

British Wireless Set No. 62 MK II
It is tropicalised and can float itself without suffering water damage. After its use by an airborne division in the last stages of WWII, modifications were made to allow its dropping by parachute and for use on the move. The upgraded No 62 Mk II version has better reception performance and due to its aluminium construction weighs 30lbs. Power is provided by a 12V accumulator, output power 0.5-1.1 Watts, range 15 miles R/T or 25 miles CW.
