w0rw/pm using a Viet Nam PRC74 backpack radio, 5 Sept 2017, Tuesday.
Times & Freeks:
1500z (1100 EDT), 10116 kHz +/- 1.
1530z (1130 EDT), 14061 kHz +/- 1.
1600z (1200 EDT), 14280/14285 kHz.
Listen for WWV on 15 MHz, if you can hear them i will be 6 "S" units weaker.
Equipment: PRC74B which is a solid state, fully synthesized, 1964 military backpack radio.
It runs 20 watts output, (You need 20 W these days).
This radio spent 40 years in a junk yard and is now back on the air !
I use a special low pass filter to block the 2nd harmonics, See QRP Quarterly July 2016, p.37.
i have an Elecraft
T-1 tuner on it to get the final match.
The entire rig weighs 31 (heavy) pounds and that's with the light Li-Ion (3S2P) battery pack.
The PRC74 is a Special Forces Radio used for long range comms.
Other radios used in Viet Nam were the PRC25 and PRC77 for short range FM
30-76 MHz, 2W.
QTH: Out in the park, Not a SOTA.
