    That's an impressive setup, I'm also looking for a S-280 com shelter the one that fits in the back of a M-35, what part of the world are you guys in? Most of the stuff we see nowdays is coming out of Israel and a 77 with a good battery seems to be running around 1K.

    We're in central FL, if you look in the background you can just see on the left a Mighty Mite jeep and on the right is a M-37 with a S-122 comm box on it, all the stuff in there works too, just no KW-7, yet.

    My first six years in the Army I was a 26Q. Tactical microwave satillite systems operator. Real geek stuff. Then I transferred to the Infantry for 2 yrs. Ft. Polk. Worlds apart!

    I did basic there and then went to North Fort for AIT, because I was going to Benning they made us go thru TigerLand, it was really something in 73 staffed mostly with lifers coming out of Nam trying to get their 20 in. What would make you want to transfer out of Signal to the Infantry? In the old Army, Signal and Transport were the last of the gravy train.

    I always envied the grunts who transferred to signal. I wanted to be part of that. I did alright in the infantry. But it sure wasnt a cake walk. Also, my signal years were in the National Guard, where I worked my way up to E-5, and when I went into the Regular army, I lost that rank and went down to E-2, as they dont count NG rank, exept as prior service, unless you go into the same MOS. So there I was, getting chewed out by corporals and spec 4's, when I was the one doing the ass chewing just a short time before. I eventually worked my way back up to spec 4. I hope they dont do it that way anymore, as alot of NG soldiers have served in combat zones with their units,and to lose their rank if they decide to go full time to a different MOS would be f'd up. Back on topic, my dad used to be into HAM radio. I wonder if he still has his old set. I think I may go ask him.
