  1. Thanks but I already have a repro and want the original article. Regards Bob
  2. Hi, Thanks, yes I have but with one exception at horrendous price, https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=15&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi-4JSnm5rmAhVRtHEKHV9JBqIQFjAOegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2FGENUINE-LAND-ROVER-WEIGHT-BRIDGE-PLATE-MILITARY-LIGHTWEIGHT-REFURBISHED-%2F153105982704&usg=AOvVaw08RGjXloruwh0Pz7774K_W, they are wrong for series vehicles and mostly copies. Regards Bob
  3. Anyone have an original British Army bridge plate for sale? Must have 3 mounting point holes and fully rounded edge. Regards Bob
  4. Over 2 years down the line and still looking..... Bob
  5. This is what it looks like just in case someone has one and doesn't know it. Pic courtesy of Military Lightweight Forum Regards Bob
  6. On the lookout for this case, any condition considered. Regards Bob
  7. The original 6TN's were wet, 6 cap. I know of one company that (I think) still has them, dry stored but available filled. Here is the original spec; UK6TN spec.pdf Bob
  8. Me again, have you conducted the functional checks on the swopped out unit? Pecs for 353's are relatively easy to obtain if you can isolate the problem and fairly straight forward to repair. Again, don't bin the set. Regards Bob
  9. Ok, sorry it seems to be a goner but they are not expensive these days, you can pick them up for around £80 working. I also have a BID sim 250/11 in mine, all working. Best of luck with another but keep your old one and open it up. There is a fuse circuit board inside it which may be the problem but usually there's a wider problem causing it to fail. I have the test data somewhere but you need the tester (and user instructions for it) to conduct the testing and they are very rare. I only know of one in private hands at this moment. Regards Bob
  10. Sorry to state the obvious but start with the PDB fuse and check your power cable for output to the DMU, it may just be a bad connection. There is no internal fuse. Regards Bob
  11. Hi Iain, This is a month for 'specials' without a doubt. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clansman-Radio-VRQ301-HIGH-POWER-/252868945650?hash=item3ae029e6f2:g:dM8AAOSwTM5Y8jd4 I know of this kit but knowledge is limited. Regards Bob
  12. Hi Iain, Thanks for all the excellent info, much appreciated. It has certainly filled a gap in my knowledge. I was aware of the crypto museum site. Another thing, I have tried to find out info on the BID300 in the past but failed, don't even know what it looks like. Anything on that? Regards Bob
  13. Iain, Fascinating, I knew you would know something of it. So do you think it was in UK service? or just trialed? As I'm sure you know, a 320 can be run through the DMU/BID250 for encryption so why this? It can obviously can be fixed to the standard 320 mountings a la 12W surf, so I guess it's a stand alone encryption unit? Apologies for all the questions. Regards Bob
  14. Anyone know about this bit of kit for a 320? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-CLANSMAN-RADIO-MILITARY-PRC320-CODE-MESSAGE-UNIT-CGT1052-/201889052390?hash=item2f018676e6:g:xt0AAOSw~CFY7j~6 It's obviously a sim as the l/h keyboard doesn't exist. BID? Never seen before, pre 319 add on for the 320?, cannot find anything about it on the net. Iain one for you? Regards Bob
  15. The bottom line of it is that the whole thing is unpoliceable so long as there is no requirement to register or license deac 'weapons'. The authorities have no idea who owns what and so long as that remains, people will be able do what they want providing they are 'careful' with whom they deal with. I am not advocating anyone doing anything illegal, but the whole knee jerk farce is open to 'abuse'. You can take that how you like. Regards Bob
