The Command Sets
Recently I have become interested the Command Set Radios. In my many years of collecting and using military radios, I have never used or even seen any of this series of radios up close. This fall I set up a trade with a fellow ham to meet at a Ham Radio swap meet to do a swap between us. Thus I now have several receivers and a couple of the transmitters. Plus I bought a 3 to 6 Mc receiver with a 12 volt dynamotor for $5.00 at the swap meet! I checked it out when I got home and powered it up and it came to life. It is surprising how well this simple receiver works!! Well anyway here are some of the pdf's that I found for the command sets. Enjoy Mike W7NPA
