Hey Mark, deja vu. I have been looking a long time for the nomenclature of the jeep mounted radio that we had in Viet Nam when I was there. I was planning to give that info to you since you were our OS commo geek. So just yesterday I posted on my Facebook Seabee page a request for the info and a guy came back with the radio set you show here. So then I did a google search and this link popped. hahaha...all I needed to do was look on the Gee to begin with.
hence the deja vu...
Anyhow, we had these radios however they were not in the M-170 style stretch jeeps. They were in regular M38's. I have got to find a photo of one of those dang things. I was told the Navy bought the radio and the Jeep was free. Well...sorta free!
I am still searching for a photo.
