so who do I deal with?  Can you get me a price?  Or do I message somebody else??

My FV439 (RR) turns over - but I need new batteries.  The firewire control box is removed - but all else for fire seems in place.

Once I get the gennies running I can start to look at the radios.  They seem to do 220-440Mhz - is that NATO band B?  I know I cant use them, but I can see if they light up and drive a dummy load.

Do a search for Ptarmigan for info on the radios, but don't ever let them loose - they're right in the middle of the GSM 'phone bands!

I am MM7IRM - a baby ham - so yes, they wont be let loose and they certainly wont be connected to the antenna.  Also I am missing a few cables and things to interconnect them.  Parts do seem to power up on the flat batteries.  I need to get some  more detailed info than I can find online fV432apc.com has a lot of info on the Ptarmigan, but I have not yet found any radio specifics

Try this, although some of their nomenclature is suspect: http://armyradio.com/UK-TRC-471-Transportable-UHF-Radio-Relay-Equipment-Triffid.html

Also this: https://radiohistory.uk/marconiTRIFFID.htm

Apart from cables, you'll also be missing the crypto units that sit between the radios and the land lines that feed them.

The RR provides a radio link between dispersed Ptarmigan nodes such as SAS/MCs, so is fed by land lines from them.  You'll find that the radios are fed by cables that cross over to the left of the vehicle where there are armoured junction boxes on the roof for the quad cables that feed them.  If you have all the cable drums on the roof you'll find that some cables are antenna feeds, the others are the land line cables.
