I have eventually decided to fit the back of the Tithonous with a Clansman Radio kit.

Can anyone help.

What kit would be there?

And what would the layout be? have a diagram which may be right

Thanks in anticipation

Have a search online for the following manual and you'll get a full breakdown:

"Clansman radio installations in Trucks,1/2 and 3/4 ton,FFR and GS,Rover.Rebro."

Been trawling through pictures on line, there seems to be a range of different layouts, including one which seems to have the "man pack" fitted. does any one have an idea if there were variants from the hand book?

Think I may end up deciding on what looks right for me, not wanting it to be operational just look as though I know what I am doing

Most pictures & descriptions for Clansman installations in Rovers are for Series Rovers not TUL/TUM.  Traditionally the layout for a radio installation in a Rover was not in EMER WHEELED VEHICLES nor EMER TELECOMMUNICATIONS but in EMER COMMUNICATION INSTALLATIONS.

The Series Rovers were covered in sections M 050-059 to M 740-749

But the Clansman installations in TUL & TUM were Army Coded publications, below is the majority of them as at 1999.

I have finally decided on the layout I am going for, taken from Army Code 61590 “Clansman Radio Installation for Trucks” pictured below, looking around will gradually collect the bits I need before starting to assemble.

 

There are a few questions as I am not a radio person and was hoping members could help.

1.       I assume there are bolt holes etc to fix the parts to the rack, what size are these bolts

2.       Regarding the RT 353 and DMU unit how are these fixed to the table

3.       The RT 320 unit appears to have a plate which seems to fit on the radio and then onto the racking or the rucksack frame, is this correct?

4.       I have noticed some set ups have a lamp over the area would this be normal?

5.       I am assuming there would be a screen between the driver’s section and the radio section, is this made up or an issued part?

Any other advice would be appreciated.

Manged to get the kit and have most of it in the back only cabling to do

After I started found out needed 1 more 3 way distribution box and a side Dexion rack, these now obtained but still to be fitted.

Have to say quite pleased with myself as no training on these
