I''m getting pretty good at eating crow.

However, in my defense, the sergeant who taught me radios and electronics
told me the RT-524 was the vehicle version (and/or a component thereof) of
the PRC-25/77 series.

The complete vehicle version of the PRC-25/77 series is know as the VRC-12
series. This consists of two PRC-25/77's, their vehicle amplifers (AM-5040 I
think), their vehicle mounting brackets, all the interconnecting cables,
their transmitting and receiving antennas with matching units, etc.

As I am not in the military (I took the class because of an emergency reponse
requirement - we had to know how to use military equipment such as radios in
case of a disaster), I don't have the access which you do. Also, I am going
off what I was told at the time.

It is possible that I misunderstood him, or copied my notes wrong.

In any case, that's my defense.
