TRA-967/3

is a compact VHF transceiver, built by Racal. It comes in two versions,
a 1- watt- version ( TRA-967/1 ) and a 3- watt- version ( TRA-967/3 ). The 3- watt- version is in the museum.
Besides on/off, the mode- switch serves these functions :

  • Whisper: microphone sensitivity is increased by 20 dB
  • Rebro: two radios can form a repeater
  • Noise: Usually preset squelch is deactivated.

    This type of radio, too, was brought back from "Operation Desert Storm".
