Many of you guys in this forum has at least one set of Russian BDU,  those gears collectors probably have a few set of assault vest and head gears, and one or two of you might have spend 500 bucks on a K6 helmet. But what about a radio? how come no one has mentioned this? I do know that modern russian force do employ radio made by the west nowsdays, especially the SF guys, but carrying an authetic russian made radio would defitnitly spice up your collection.


I could only found little information on russian radio, nice if someone can share some informaiton here.

Anyway, here is one that i found form a russian webpage, no too sure if they are issue item.

Excellent info! I'd love to make one of these using a simple motorola 7 mile radio inside. The headset is the best... very cool!!!

I have been interested in this for a while even emailed the webmaster of the first link asking if beat up non functional russian radios ever entered the market.  He of course said no and ive been gathering pictures to try to recreate the experiance.  2 pictures (other in sweeden thread) show those 1950 style headsets that i can find all over the place but i have in my ham days worn those for hours and they hurt like hell (my experiance).  I will be building something some day.  Im just waiting for better pictures of a commanders telephone from a radio cause i want that more than a headset.

I have gotten only 3 pictures of only one operator in all my looking though.

The radio is contained in a special canvas pouch - only the strap is evident. The antenna is rubber encased. It looks like there is a second wire coiled around the primary... a very common type among most military radios.

Yeah, wish I had one too. :roll:

Wish Anton would post detailed photos of his.  Wink hint....

This type Antenna is used on a lot of ( purely defensive ) Communication Equipment, used in the support of world peace... :roll: ...The WPFG R105m and R109 both use this type... DDR Soviet Radio's are Russian radio's, sometimes they been they are removed from storage to be tested they are refitted with German name plates on the instrument panels and plates.
The R126 uses a similar style twig , but shorter with a final 3 extension piece... the Antenna is like a Steel whip.... nice.
The mike and earphones are also used by the R105 and  R109, again the R126 uses a different style.

Own produced DDR Radio's are different from the WWII copies that early Russian radios tend to be...but are normally Police or local control items... you must be onthe " Big Mans" net if you wish to speak with him....

In the Picture you will note the cut of the Combat Dress and Beret  ,  issue items for a  lady, she is an unteroffizierschule... (learning to be a Corporal), you can tell by the black slide on her shoulder strap.

 Cheers

Bump to the radio thread im interested if any new pictures refrences (stores!) have been found.  Ive been scouring ebay all that turns up are r105's that im not crazy enought to carry.
the picture of tje R159 really has my attention

Ive taken a heavy interest in making a military radio and have made good steps towards a US radio recreation.  Currently this beast runs on D cells for months without replacment and uses the current US RTO handset.

Bump again wondering if anyone knows the dimensions of the P105M.  I have seen pictures that make it look huge and some that make it seem small.  Ive also read it weighs 90lbs is that true?

Its a man pack item - the size of a backpack...

Remember of course there are lots of different radios for different jobs.

Your scale of radio issue should match the rest of your deployment.

There is no point in having a division to front sized set if there are 4 of you ;-)

This isnt for talking to my team this is for large games where im part of a company.  I am considering the r225 though.  Also P105 is the most common seen on the market.

The R255 seems a good choice - I missed one of those on ebay the other day.

Its a later radio, fully transistorised and clearly current issue still as most of the webbing sets have pouches for them.

I suspect its role is a patrol or maybe patrol to company set, I think it operates on a set of frequecies which the larger sets can hear.
