- where C stands for Canada - PRC-26
was used similar to the American PRC-6
There are PRC-26 A to F, signifying different combinations of channels.
The same crystals as in the American PRC-6
is a vacuum tube meter, especially designed for the CPRC-26.
Built in a bakelite case, it has several functions:
When connecting battery and radio, (cables are included), it measures battery voltage and power consumption.
As vacuum tube meter it has a self test function.
A built-in cable with plug can be plugged in the chassis to measure several data needed for alignment:
A built in 7 pin tube socket allows testing of the tubes.
