History / Summary

For use with Raven HF radio equipment. Project Raven was an Australian Army project for the replacement of single channel HF and VHF Radio equipment, commencing in the late 1970's. The Army wished to introduce one 'family' of HF and VHF Radio equipment which had a suite of common ancilliaries (headsets, handsets, vehicle mounting equipment etc); integrated unit, field and base repair facilities; and a Frequency Management System. Project Raven was the result. The system, in addition to normal AM and FM transmitter-receiver use, features advanced operating modes appropriate to a hostile environment.
