My 1952m38A1 has a radio installed in it. It has the following info on it. REC-TRANS-RT-671GRC serial #800452. The power supply has app-112/GR serial #26230 on it. I have done a few searches and not found a manual for this specific radio. Can someone help me identify it and point me to the right manual. Thanks, Mike McMahan
Thanks for the replies. Still trying to learn about this stuff. Wes you were right. It is 67/. Guess I really have the wrong radio in it. The Jeep is marked with Texas National Guard 36th Infantry 143-3. If I understand the chart it should have a 68/ for Infantry. Can someone tell me if any of the frequencies in the 67/ are used for anything today. Looks like the 68/ still works on the ham frequencies. Thanks again. Mike

The RT-67 and RT-68 look identical, aside from the frequency readout in the viewing window.
The frequencies in the -67 and not used very much and for all practical purposes, you won't hear anything on it. I am a fan of running audio from your smartphone or modern radio to a speaker. That way, you can simulate radio traffic for displays and not have to get the old radio up and running. _________________ 1952 M38A1 SOLD
Yes. Period correct music coming from the low-fi speaker really sets off a display. edit in clips of seoal city sue and it is like you are standing beside a time machine. _________________ 2004 M1025, 1952 Dodge M37, 1968 Dodge M615 export ambulance, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car, 1944 WC-51 Weapons Carrier, (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators.
RT-67/GRC is associated with Artillery frequencies of the period,
The pair of units you have would be a "Radio Set AN/VRC-9" provided you have the mount MT-299/GR, control box C-375/VRC and the antenna components (I have the numbers if you care). _________________ 2004 M1025, 1952 Dodge M37, 1968 Dodge M615 export ambulance, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car, 1944 WC-51 Weapons Carrier, (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators.
