{Collins} Need help itentifying details of AN/TSC60(V) Military shelters made by Collins



Dear CCA and Friends,

 

I am trying to assemble an accurate list of military HF Transportable
Communication Shelters made by Collins and later Rockwell Collins. Collins
dominated this field ever since the Army produced their first communications
shelter in 1955.   Here is what I have come up with so far.  If any of you
have knowledge, insight, literature, pictures  or actual shelters that could
update or correct this document it would be really helpful.  Please contact
me off line!

 

Thanks,

 

Jim Stitzinger, WA3CEX
