Clansman RT-350 / PRC-350 VHF/FM Man-Pack Radio
The Clansman RT-350 / PRC-350 is a narrow-band FM VHF man-pack radio that operates from 36-57MHz in 2KHz steps, total of 841 programmable channels with 2 Watts output. The radio operates from a 15VDC battery pack. The desired frequency is set by four knobs on the side of the radio which can be operated even while the operator is wearing Arctic mittens, or in the dark by counting clicks from the end-stops.

Having set the four frequency control knobs the operator has then to set the only remaining control, the system switch, to one of its four positions: Off, Whisper, Loud and Noise-On.

In the Whisper position the audio output is reduced by a factor of 10 and the microphone sensitivity is increased by about the same amount. This position is used in situations close to the enemy where a minimum amount of noise is desirable.

The Loud position enables the set to be used in conditions of high ambient noise levels, such as may be encountered in active service.

Noise-On position the squelch or muting circuit is disabled and receiver noise is heard in the absence of a signal.

The optional accessories include a Terylene harness for carrying the set on the hip or back, Battery Pack, Flexible Antenna & 2 meter Long Whip Antenna.

Normally the 2 Meter Whip Antenna is used and a rotating mounting socket on the set enables the rod to be rotated rough 90? when the operator is lying down. The headset and handset provided with the complete station can be connected to the set at the same time to enable an officer or a second operator to monitor the radio.

The radio is supplied in very good condition, tested and working. Please select accessories option that can be used with this radio below.

Clansman RT-351 / PRC-351 VHF Man-Pack Transceiver
This is the Clansman RT-351 / VRC-351 Back-Pack Radio. It is a 4 Watt portable VHF (FM) Radio, made by RACAL BCC Ltd. in England. The PRC-351 has been designed to provide command communications at battalion and company level for dismounted troops. It was also used in vehicles by mounted troops. The PRC-351 replaced the older A41 and A42 British VHF radios.

Frequency Range 30 to 76.000 MHz in 25 Khz steps giving a total of 1841 programmable channels. The desired frequency is set by four knobs on the side of the radio which can be operated even while the operator is wearing Arctic mittens, or in the dark by counting clicks from the end-stops.

Intermediate Freq 11.525 MHz, Frequency Stability 5 ppm per year. Voice F3E Narrow with +/- 5 Khz deviation, Telegraph F2, 75 Baud.

A Whisper mode is provided for use when quiet conditions are essential. In this mode the receiver's audio output volume is reduced and the microphone sensitivity is increased. A Loud mode is also provided for operation in noisy environments as well as a Noise-On switch position which allows the radio to operate with the squelch in the off mode.

Local Squelch facility by either 150 Hz tone modulation of radiated signal, or by 160 Hz superimposed on receive signal. Auto-Rebroadcast operates on 150Hz Modulated receive signal.

Output power of the radio is 4 Watts into a 50 Ohm load and the transmitting range is up to 10 Km when used with 1.2 meter standard whip antenna in open country side, and up to 20 Km when used with a vehicle antenna. The radio can be capable of transmitting to much greater distances by adding an external clip on 20 Watt RF amplifier. In this configuration the radio would effectively become a Clansman PRC-352 which is available elsewhere on this website.

If more than one radio set is used in close proximately a Selective Unit RF 4 Watt SURF should be installed on top of the PRC-351 radio. The SURF prevents one radio interfering with the other radio. The SURF is then tuned to give optimum performance and achieve maximum range with the radio set.

The radio is powered by a standard Clansman 24 Volt battery pack. The battery clips on to the bottom of the radio. The radio can also be powered / recharged with a Hand Generator which clips on between the radio and the battery. It can also be powered externally from Vehicle power supply or a 24 Volt DC Power Supply such as the UK-AC1-2870 14/28 Volt AC Adaptor, connected to the radio with a modified battery extension lead.

The PRC-351 and accessories are supplied in very good condition, tested and operational. Please choose from a range of accessories that is available below.

Local Squelch facility by either 150 Hz tone modulation of radiated signal, or by 160 Hz superimposed on receive signal. Auto-Rebroadcast operates on 150Hz Modulated receive signal.

Output power of the radio is 20 Watts into a 50 Ohm load using the RF amplifier. The amplifier can not be used on high power transmit using the radios normal whip antenna and instead a Ground-Spike Antenna is used. The amplifier can only be used on high power as a fixed radio station or in a vehicle using the vehicles antenna system. For mobile man-pack operations the battle antenna is fitted and the radio is operated on low power bypassing the amplifier as a PRC-351.

If more than one radio set is used in close proximately a Selective Unit RF 4 Watt SURF should be installed on top of the PRC-352 radio and used on low power. The SURF prevents one radio interfering with the other radio. The SURF is then tuned to give optimum performance and achieve maximum range with the radio set.

The radio is powered by a standard Clansman 24 Volt battery pack. The battery clips on to the bottom of the radio. The radio can also be powered / recharged with a Hand Generator which clips on between the radio and the battery. It can also be powered externally from Vehicle power supply or a 24 Volt DC Power Supply such as the UK-AC1-2870 14/28 Volt AC Adaptor, connected to the radio with a modified battery extension lead.

Clansman PRC-351 / PRC-352 20 Watt RF Power Amplifier
The Clansman PRC-351 / PRC-352 20 Watt RF Power Amplifier effectively upgrades the 4 Watt output of Clansman PRC-351 to a 20 Watt PRC-352 Radio.

Operating frequency of this RF amplifier is in the VHF band of 30-76 Mhz in 3 selectable ranges: 30-40 Mhz, 40-55 Mhz, 55-76 Mhz. Requires 24 VDC to operate.

The amplifier can not be used on high power transmit using the radios normal whip antenna and instead a Ground-Spike Antenna is used. The amplifier can only be used on high power as a fixed radio station or in a vehicle using the vehicles antenna system. For mobile man-pack operations the battle antenna is fitted and the radio is operated on low power bypassing the amplifier as a PRC-351.

The RF amplifier works with other VHF radios and needs about 1.5 watts of input power to produce 20 Watts of output power. Connections are by standard BNC antenna plugs. NSN: 5820-99-114-3640. Supplied in good condition.
