      R-123 M
  R-130 M







is a HF transceiver, following R-104 M und R-112 . It was used in cars and armored vehicles.
There are different versions, known to me are:
R-130 und R-130 M .
The radio operated here is:

R-130 M

Parts of the set are called:

  • R-130 M (Transceiver)
  • TE-260 (Transverter) und
  • R130 WSU-A (Antenna tuner)

    Nameplates of the components are:
  • R-130 M-1 (Transceiver)
  • R-130 M-2 (Transverter) and
  • R-130 M-3 (Antenna tuner)

    The transverters are not compatible to the different transceivers. They also are different from the outside:
    The transverter to R-130 has 4 transistors on the side, the transverter TE-260 for R-130 M has 8 transistors =>

    You can find two versions of the antenna tuner. Both are meant for HF and UHF, for instance when working together with R-123.

    Here you see the
    Antenna matcher R130-M-3 .
    Tuners built after 1987 even have a built-in fake antenna: The antenna output is connected to the fake antenna and SWR is tuned to maximum.
    The tuner is ideal for HAM use.
