I only messed with the 109 in the beginning of commo school. The PRC-74 was the heat then. It would also bite ya. Towards the end they came out and showed us this nice new multi-function...PRC70...AKA BOAT ANCHOR.

It did make a good base radio though, especially on a power supply...PP-6148??

Batteries sucked, DMDG sucked...had to sleep with them....and not for the "good" reason...LOL
