We now have all the radios and the homelite generator out of a b-24 we are trying to get a mount for the art-13 and figure out which antennae will work a couple of connectors and were are set. The antennae thing is the really big question. Think will go with ab-15 withthe mp-50 mount lot of watts though any suggestions :roll:

AN/VRC-1 jeep-mounted ground/air radio installation.
(As delivered with USAAF units attached to the British Airborne at Arnhem, trivia fans!)

It's a simple setup to copy, especially if you don't fit the radios and associated gear into the cabinet and keep the canvas flap down. ;)

There is a jeep with the complete working rig doing the circuit in Italy, and very nice it looks too:

I like the aerial mount on the front, but I'm curious why the Jeep crew need parachutes!
