(also known as AN/PRC-514)

is a fully transistorized, lightweight and rugged Canadian 18- channel- SSB- radio for portable connections. It has a watertight housing made of polycarbonate plastic and a front panel of die cast aluminium.

The built- in antenna tunder matches long wire antennas, dipole and rod antennas. D- cells or - batteries can be used, it is advised to use alcali cells because of the high output of the transceiver.

The built- in loudspeaker can be used as microfone, so the radio can be used without a headset or a handset. A whisper-modulation option provides full modulation, even when the operator is forced to whisper.

Modular construction and plug-in curcuit boards permit an easy servicing.
