Abstract:

Research efforts were directed to meet the tactical requirements of a portable tactical one-man radio set that is capable of communicating over a range of 15 mi in rolling terrain on a large number of channels in the VHF band. Two experimental models of ANPRC-38 equipment were constructed and operated intermittently under both portable and mobile conditions. The feasibility of the concept and design approach of the VHF pack set was proven beyond any possible doubt. Areas of weakness are presented which must receive further attention. Author
