This Amp/control box is good for the guy who wants to have control of the radio in several location in his vehicle! It lets him mount the radio in the back of the vehicle yet control it from the cab of the truck!This is like Ed has in the gun truck!

Subject: PRC-77 Radios

The PRC-77 radio is one of the best radios for our use. It was one of the first all solid-state, portable transceivers to come out in the late 1960ís. This radio remained in use with the US military until the 1990ís and is currently in use by many countries around the world. This FM radio operates between 30-75 MHz in 50 kHz steps (25 kHz is available but not very common) and usually has an output of about 2 watts. With a good antenna, a 5-mile or more range is possible. Standard configurations/accessories include stationary, portable and vehicle applications. Standard handsets, hand mics, earphones and full function headsets are available. The PRC-77 is capable of retransmit with the proper equipment. Homebrewed external amplified speakers and gel-cell 12-volt batteries can be easily fabricated. Civilian external antennas can be utilized thanks to the BNC connector on the radio. Due to the price and availability, PRC-10 ribbon antennas can be used with a simple adapter in place of the standard PRC-25/77 antenna. Steve Haney in Godley, Texas is the best source for sales, repair and support. Corporal Jarhead also sells PRC-77ís and the AM-2060/MT-1029 vehicle mounts. PRC-77ís along with many of the accessories can be had off of eBay but be prepared to pay $350+ for a "working" radio or $100+ repair bill on a cheaper one.
