Clansman PRC-320?
« on: December 02, 2019, 1401 UTC »
Hi all, I have in my possession a British military radio. I am familiar about how the radio operates and works, but I could not find any statement of duty cycle in the military paperwork specs. It has standard AM, USB, CW wide and narrow. The AM TX and RX filter is 6.25khz wide. Its frequency agile anywhere from 2Mhz to 30Mhz, so 6925khz and anywhere around it is no problem. Also it receives AM beautifully and they are budget priced, a used one going for about $250 for just the radio.

So anyone try one on the air? I'm just concerned about heat, it is solid state. Im surprised no one else has used one here.

Sorry no help here but always wanted one due to them being 22nd SAS kit, but scarce this side of the pond. Apparently they have reliability issues in some cases so an owner might want to look into the most common failures..
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

Try the RACAL forum on Yahoo.
Str.
'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground

I read in some other forums, the PRC320 suffers from unstable frequency and drifting too, which is caused by the rotary wafer switches going bad.
