Officials of Special Operations Command (SOCOM) at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., announced a potential $255 million six-year contract Monday to the Harris RF Communications segment in Rochester, N.Y., to provide the Special Operations Forces Tactical Communications Next Generation Manpack (STC NGMP) Radio system.

The new radios will replace SOCOM's current radio communications equipment like the AN/PRC-117F and PRC 117G multiband multimission radios, as well as the AN/PRC-150 multiband radio.

Wow, it seems like it was only yesterday when the PRC-117F and PRC-150 HF was new and I had them stacked in vehicles and carried in backpacks. Then the PRC-117G felt like a god send being half the weight and size, a lot less to hump around the mountains of Afghanistan.

Now they are all being replaced. I have been carrying a Harris Unity XG-100P for the past five years, and retired from the military. Glad they are still making great products that work when they must.
