  1. 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
  2. On the lookout for this case, any condition considered. Regards Bob
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Hi Iain, Thanks for the info, very interesting. Because of the price I decided to leave it alone. I have tried to find out more about it but nothing so I don't think it was ever in UK service except maybe trialed, it did have an MOD record plate on it though. Regards Bob
  13. Have long known these existed and one is now for sale but know little about them, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CLANSMAN-320-2-TRANSMITTER-RECEIVER-BASE-RADIO-USB-and-LSB-/201838067790?hash=item2efe7c804e:g:IDMAAOSw4CFYttwL What were they fitted into? AFV's? I never came across one in the past life. Also they need a 100w amp but have never seen one, and they must be even more hen's teeth than the set itself. I would love to buy it but need more info on it's employment... Lwt FFR's? Any info would be grateful. It is one hell of a price though but considering it's rarity maybe not? Regards Bob
  14. Thank you to all who have pm'd me expressing an interest. I have replied to you all with the price I am looking which is £500 ono. I will not be running a Dutch auction and playing people off against each other. I am open to any reasonable offer for a good deal for an increasingly rare piece. Once sold I will notify on here. Regards Bob
  15. Old spec de-ac 1991, been in my possession ever since but no longer have cert to go with it having gone missing in house move some years ago. All Birmingham proof marks present and clearly legible. Very good condition with much of original finish, also all matching serial numbers. Will take dummy .455 rounds, very crisp firing action. There is a slight crack to the cylinder (the reason it was deactivated) but not obvious unless you know where to look. The grips are also damaged, I did have a new set but again have lost them. I have more pics if anyone requires. Anybody interested please pm me. Regards Bob
