The ARC-5/SCR-274 series units were single band. No band switching. These were remotly located in the aircraft.

The RT-13/BC-348 were the ARC-8 system. They were used by a radio operator. They did have band switching.

These units also had serviceable modules. For repair the modules were replaced by functional modules and non-functional modules were sent to service shop.

 This was for minimum time to repair an aircraft.

  While a bit OT, I've always found the old military gear to bra bit arcane. It may be because everything is modular. Audio, low-level RF, exciter, PA, ATU, etc. all seemed to have their own module. That and even the different frequency bands were modularized. There don't seem to be band switches. 


  On one hand, loss of a single module could be easily dealt with by plugging in a module that worked, but it all seems a bit "lashed together."


  Is military gear still the same way?

    How does the ART-13 compare to DX-100, Vikings, and other 100W AM 
    transmitters?
