My set is good for about half mile with the long antenna my radio is ww2 dated too. I also have a French unit which seems far superior in audio output and range. Cheers James
Great mate, always grear to meet another radio enthusiast!
Erm no clue mate as that frequency range is illegal over here, however have a re-enactment show over in england soon where a guy from another group and myself are going to try and connect our radios!
Only had the small antenna on!
And I also have a french one haha 59 dated and in a horrible colour with italian writing on the data plate! However one main wire is broken inside so never tried this one out. Am going to repaint and re-stencil this this year and hopefully sell it!
Here's some pics mate:
First is two 5th Ranger Battalion radio operators, one has fixed his meatcan pouch and antenna pouch to his radio, I have acyually fixed an original meatcan pouch, original gp bag and original life belt to mine for an upcoming event in weymouth England this weekend, as this is where the Rnagers and many other units left for France! I am a member of a group who re-enacts DOG Company of thr Second Battalion Rangers and live in Scotland so it will be a long drive! One littl einteresting fact about our group is that one of the rules is only original tan webbing allowed, or transitional, no green or reproduction eqyupment allowed! I could give a list of all original equipment I own but I don't want to appear like someone who is all 'me, me, me, I;m the best' However if people would like to know pm me! As I love talking about kit!
The second is 4 rangers, including Lou Lisko from HQ Company 2nd Battalion Rnagers sititng with two bc-1000s in the background!
More will follow!
