Qty Sorry, This Item is Sold-Out!
RU-20 is ex-Yugoslav Peoples Army HF/SSB radio station manufactured by RIZ Zagreb factory (ex Yugoslavia) under licence from Rockwell Collins of Canada (original Collins model designation is PRC-515) for combat use.

The equipment operates in the 2 to 30 MHz band with 100Hz spacing. Selection is by decade push down switches that control a synthesizer. Modes of operation SSB (LSB, USB), AM and CW.

A transmitter output power of 20 W PEP working into a whip antenna gives the RU-20 a ground-wave communications range in excess of 20 km by day under normal conditions.

The RU-20 is suitable for use as a ground station, working into static ground- or sky-wave antennas. Working into a dipole or end-fed antenna, sky-wave communications at ranges from 50 to 2000 km or greater can be achieved. This range performance is due in part to the high-grade receiver and high efficiency built in automatic antenna-tuning unit, which is integral with the transmitter/receiver unit. The radio is carried on the operator's back. It is powered by rechargeable 25.2V/1.8Ah NiCd batteries.

The equipment and accessories are supplied in very good condition, tested and operational. Please choose from accessories options below.","RU-20 is ex-Yugoslav Peoples Army HF/SSB radio station manufactured by RIZ Zagreb factory (ex Yugoslavia) under licence from Rockwell Collins of Canada (original Collins model designation is PRC-515) for combat use.
