Reference: TM 11-5820-398-12
General Information
The AN/PRC-25 is a short-range, manpack, portable frequency modulated (FM)
transceiver that provides two-way voice communication. The RT-505 and RT-505A transceiver
radios are similar components. Both case modules are identical; however, the internal module
circuits of the RT-505A are micro-modularized. The modules of the two radios are physically
and electrically interchangeable. The RT-505 and the RT-505A are part of the AN/PRC-25.
They can be used as part of vehicular Radio Sets AN/VRC-53 and AN/GRC-125.

General Information
Single-Channel Ground and Airborne Radio Systems (SINCGARS) is a family of VHFFM radio sets designed to meet the Army’s tactical communications requirements under the
new Army operations doctrine. SINCGARS is replacing the AN/PRC-77 and the AN/VRC-12
series radio sets. It is designed for simple, quick operation using a 16-element keypad for
push-button tuning. SINCGARS is capable of short-range or long-range operation for voice,
frequency shift-keying (FSK), or digital data communications. It can be used for singlechannel operation or in a jam-resistant, frequency hopping mode which can be changed as
needed. SINCGARS has a built-in self test with visual and audio read back. Major
components and equipment configurations are shown in the chart on the following page.

General Information
The AN/GRC-106 is an HF-single sideband (SSB) radio set used primarily as a mobile
link in a communications network. It also may be used in fixed and semifixed applications,
and it has an AM mode to make it compatible with standard AM radio sets. The AN/GRC-106
is now being used as the basic radio set with all of the newer SSB radio teletypewriter
(RATT) configurations The AN/GRC-106 and AN/GRC-106A are identical except that the
AN/GRC-106 uses an RT-662/GRC, and the AN/GRC-106A uses an RT-834/GRC. The KY-99

Reference: TM 11-5820-474-14
General Information
The AN/GRC-109 is a compact, portable high frequency (HF) radio set used for
continuous wave (CW) communications under a wide range of climatic conditions.
Transmissions can be made using the built-in hand key, an external hand key, or an external,
high-speed automatic keyer such as Coder-Burst Transmission Group AN/GRA-71. Two power
supplies and a voltage regulator permit operation from a variety of power sources. Current

AN/GRC-193
High Frequency Radio Set
NSN:
5820-01-133-4195
Reference:
11-5820-924-12
General Information
The AN/GRC-193 is a medium/high-power vehicular configuration of the Improved
High Frequency Radio (IHFR) system. It will satisfy those mission requirements which need
an HF radio capability greater than the low power/IHFR system. The high-power
vehicular/airborne adaptive configuration consists of a basic receiver-transmitter with
required coupling device, amplifier, and other ancillary devices for CW voice or teletype
operation; near vertical incidence sky wave (NVIS) antenna, whip antenna, data I/O device,
and external power sources. The radio will have the capability of selectable power (100 W,
400 W). Normal operation will be below 400 W. The AN/GRC-193 uses the KY-99 for securing
voice traffic and the TSEC/KG-84 for securing data traffic. The antenna may be remoted up
to 61 m (200 ft) from the radio set, using the antenna siting bit which is part of the basic
configuration.

High Frequency Radio Set
NSN:
5820-01-128-3935
Reference: TM-11-5820-923-12
General Information
The AN/GRC-213 is a low-power manpack/vehicular configuration of the IHFR system.
It provides a much needed, reliable, full HF coverage capability of 2 to 29,9999 MHz to
tactical commanders. It has a requirement to pass secure, command and control information
over medium to long distances and over varying degrees of terrain features which would
normally preclude the use of very high frequency (VHF)/FM combat net radios (CNR). Use
of broadband or NVIS antennas enhances the communication capability of IHFR. The
AN/GRC-213 consists of AN/PRC-104A (complete), audio amplifier and power conditioner,
antenna switch (for use with long-wire antennas), and vehicular mounting tray to allow its
installation in Army combat vehicles (tracked and wheeled). It gives the commander a
complete low-power communications system.

General Information
The AN/PRC-41 is a lightweight, portable VHF/ultra high frequency (UHF)-AM
receiver-transmitter which permits manpack, fixed-station, or vehicular operation. The
AN/PRC-41 and AN/PRC-41A are identical except that the AN/PRC-41A can provide secure
voice (X-mode) operation when used in conjunction with Speech Security Equipment
TSEC/KY-38. The X-mode operation is possible due to circuitry modifications made on the
AN/PRC-41A model. The Special Cable CX-10831 is required to connect the TSEC/KY-38 to
the AN/PRC-41A. The AN/PRC-41 uses RT-695, and the AN/PRC-41A uses RT-695A.

General Information
The AN/PRC-74 is a low-power, transistorized, SSB radio set used for voice and CW
communications. It is designed primarily as a manpack set in areas where direct line of sight
(LOS) communications are not possible. Except for the difference in the frequency range of
the AN/PRC-74B and AN/PRC-74C, all models are essentially the same. Current tactical
speech security equipment is not compatible with the AN/PRC-74; therefore, secure voice is
not a mode of operation. Coder-Burst Transmission Group AN/GRA-71 can be used with all

AN/PRC-104A
High Frequency Radio Set
NSN:

Reference: TM 11-5820-919-12
General Information
The AN/PRC-104A is a low-power vehicular configuration of the IHFR system. It
provides a much needed, reliable, full HF coverage capability of 2 to 29.9999 MHz to tactical
commanders. It has a requirement to pass secure, command and control information over
medium to long distances and over varying degrees of terrain features which would normally
preclude the use of VHF/FM CNR. Use of broadband or NVIS antennas enhance the
communication capability of IHFR. The AN/PRC-104A consists of a receiver-transmitter with
up to 20 watts of power, the associated accessories (microphone, antenna, battery, backpack),
and the appropriate secure device. The AN/PRC-104A has a frequency range of 2 to 29.9999
MHz in 100 Hz steps yielding 280,000 channels and operates in the USB, lower sideband
(LSB), and CW modes. It provides the tactical commander with a complete low-power
communications system.

General Information
The AN/PRC-112A(C) provides full voice encryption using Motorola’s field proven
INDICTOR module. Designed for covert and hostile environment operations, the AN/PRC112A(C) provides interoperability with key COMSEC devices including the Sunburst II
Processor (AN/CSZ-1A) and VINSON (KY-57). Slightly larger than the standard AN/PRC-112,
the AN/PRC-112A(C) will slip easily into uniform pockets, rucksacks and other transport
compartments. The AN/PRC-112A(C) is an NSA endorsed, Type I secure voice, ground-to-air
communications radio. A mode control switch selects between two key variables for secure
voice, a zeroize-key function and a clear “plain text” voice mode. This radio will automatically
receive and process clear “plain text” voice transmissions even when configured in a secure
voice mode. The built-in transponder beacon supplies ranging and personnel identification
information via the airborne AN/ARS-6 interrogator system.

General Information
The AN/TRC-133A is a transportable, tactical HF, nonsecure SSB radio terminal set
mounted in an S-280A type shelter. The shelter contains five radio positions which can be
connected to separate doublet antennas provided as part of the radio terminal. Positions 1
and 2 can be operated with separated 15-foot whip antennas, which are used when the radio
terminal set is needed for mobile operation and powered from the 28-volt DC vehicular
electrical system. In addition, Radio Frequency Amplifier AM-3979/FRC-93 is provided to
allow any one of the five positions to transmit on increased output power to extend the
operating range of the position so selected. Current tactical speech security equipment is not
compatible with the AN/TRC-133A; therefore, secure voice is not a mode of operation.
