Group Description

This group exists to collate information on the range of manpack tactical military radios manufactured in the UK by Racal and it's predecessors and descendants up to the present date, and to provide a source of technical information and information regarding spares and accessories.

We very much welcome postings relating to on-air use of the Racal manpacks, either anecdotal during their military service or references to current use in amateur radio or other service. Information relating to paramilitary radios such as those from Barrett, Codan, Motorola, Q-Mac, Vertex-Standard and many others is also welcome were it provides a contrast with similar Racal models.

Between them members of this group have probably owned every Racal model ever made, and can generally provide access to material such as the Racal-Tacticom "Concise Catalogues", various years of Janes Military Communications and often other professional military communications catalogues from the period. Some of these have already appeared in the "Files" or "Photos" sections of this site. A major role for this group will be to try to identify any sources of service and operating manuals,and any other literature, for the equipment which interests us.

Please take time to check out our "Links" section, and also to read back through the archived mail from before your date of joining the group.
