I remember in 62 buying a Vibroplex Presentation bug in a store in Fayetteville. This was after graduating and before being sent to the 1st on Oki. I don't remember what kind of store it was. Not a lot of stores sell bugs, usualy ham radio stores.

We had one of those as well as a few PRC-74s complete with coder burster devices in the Battalion communications locker.
