When I was in the army I had schooling on the TRC-24 at Ft.Gordon, Ga. This was April, 1961. The instructors told us these were only for training purposes, as they weren't being used in the field anymore. At Ft. Gordon we operated what they called "A" band. For all intent and purpose this was 6 meters.
When I arrived at my duty station in Munich, Germany I was given a 2½ ton truck with the AN/TRC-24 hut mounted on it, a trailer with two 5 kw Hobart generators. The thing had tuning heads for "A" band, almost everything was exactly the same as it was in the school, including the TCC-7 carrier unit and the TT-1 teletype modems.
One of my co-workers was stationed in Turkey in the late '70s with the Air Force, and he said they had TRC-24s there.
Just curious if anyone in this fourm also was exposed to them, and which band they were set to operate.
The sands of time don't go back up unless you turn over the hourglass
