CIC equipment

#

name

1

Morrow Project PC, with external 3.5" diskette reader, and diskettes containing software

1

Laserdisc player, with Laserdiscs for :  survival library, computer programs, and maps

1

ARN-59(V) radio direction finder; it provides a relative bearing of the direction from which an incoming radio signal is being detected. The bearing is displayed on a compass-type dial indicator, and is also fed to the AutoNav to be displayed on the map. Frequency range:  100 KHz to 3 MHz. Power is from the vehicle.

1

PRC-70 manpack radio; uses "radio battery" or vehicle power

--

PRC-70 radio accessories:  long and short antennas, radio direction finder, packframe, vehicle power cable, 8-meter long doublet antenna (AS-2975, 2.4 kg including ground rod, halyards and wire ropes)

1

converter box to connect the computer to the PRC-70 radio; can thus act as a 9600 baud modem, and allow sending of Morse by software

1

PSC-3 satcom transceiver. It's a man-portable backpack unit, but normally it's mounted here. 16.5 kg including antenna and accessories. The antenna can be (and usually is) mounted on the roof of the pilothouse.

3

LS-166/U speakers on short cables; can plug into the intercom system or directly into most Project radios

1

H-250/U radio handset, for use with most Project radios. Note the PRC-70 and the PSC-3 each come with one of these, as well.

1

H-161E headset with microphone (some teams receive different types, but functionally the same); for when you don't want to wear your helmet ...

1

CX-10791/GR extension cable for headset, 3 meters long (the "person on watch" extension cord)

1

marine radio with scanner, runs on 12 volt DC power or 6 D-cell batteries. Includes built-in speaker, handset, earphone/headset plug, antenna, "cigarette lighter" power cord. Transmits "high power" (25 watts) or "low power" (1 watt).  Receives on 540 kHz to 1600 kHz (AM radio broadcast stations), receive and transmit (simplex) as SSB 1.6 MHz to 5 MHz (HF ship-to-shore) and FM 148 MHz to 174 MHz (the usual "marine VHF channels"). Range 2 km at low power, about 50 km at high power; the HF range varies quite a lot, especially at night. Weight about 5 kg.

1

M42 chemical alarm, on 11 meter long cable (connected to the boat's CBR system normally). It uses 4 'D' cells; the Project version has 4 'D' sabots with 4 Project camera batteries in them, allowing the M42 to signal for a very long time indeed.

1

Morrow Project rechargeable 24 volt "radio battery"

8

Morrow Project MP-AA rechargeable 1.5 volt "camera batteries"

8

sabot hulls to use AA batteries in C-cell devices

8

sabot hulls to use AA batteries in D-cell devices

1

battery charger:  can accommodate 1 "camera battery" and 1 "radio battery" simultaneously. Recharging Morrow Project batteries takes about ten minutes.

1

large Morrow Project Med Kit in shoulder bag

1

Civil Defense V-717 high-range radiation survey meter and 7.6 m cable; 2.4 kg, uses D cell battery

1

#3 "aid bag" with three zippered pockets. It contains a minor surgical field instrument set, EMT shears, 24 field dressings (0.1 kg each), compresses, gauze, band-aids, sunburn cream, two tourniquets, a splint, and other minor stuff. Game effects:   the use of First Aid skill allows this set to be used for the treatment of 12 minor or major wounds. It's not much use in case of amputations or massive blood loss.

2

submersible battle lantern (each one uses four D-cell batteries) 12 hours with original batteries ... at least twice as long with four MP-AA batteries in D sabots. These have a 3 meter long power cord, with a plug for normal 110 volt AC power; if the power goes off, the lantern turns on. They can also be carried around, of course. 2.5 kg

Transmits "high power" (25 watts) or "low power" (1 watt).  Receives on 540 kHz to 1600 kHz (AM radio broadcast stations), receive and transmit (simplex) as SSB 1.6 MHz to 5 MHz (HF ship-to-shore) and FM 148 MHz to 174 MHz (the usual "marine VHF channels"). Range 2 km at low power, about 50 km at high power; the HF range varies quite a lot, especially at night. Weight about 5 kg.

1

marine radio with manual direction finder, runs on 12 volt DC power or 6 D-cell batteries. Includes built-in speaker, handset, earphone/headset plug, antenna, "cigarette lighter" power cord. Transmits "high power" (25 watts) or "low power" (1 watt).  Receives on 150 KHz to 400 KHz (navigation beacons), 540 kHz to 1600 kHz (AM radio broadcast stations), receive and transmit (simplex) as SSB 1.6 MHz to 5 MHz (HF ship-to-shore) and FM 148 MHz to 174 MHz (the usual "marine VHF channels"). VHF range 2 km at low power, about 50 km at high power; the HF range varies quite a lot, especially at night. Weight about 7 kg.

     The above three radios are mounted in a stack, with the direction-finding unit on the top (the actual direction-finding antenna is a hand-turned dial on the top of the DF radio). Note that the PRC-70 radio cannot receive marine VHF channels. For the Morrow Project, there are 12 MP-AA batteries in each radio, inside D-cell sabots -- good enough for an hour of continuous high-power transmission, or several days of receiving only. They normally operate from boat power, however.

1

handheld marine radio, low power (1 watt) only. Has six preset channels (16, 6, 9, 11, 12, 13) and six programmable channels (by fiddling with dip switches). Has a headphone and microphone jack, volume knob, channel select knob, squelch knob, a removable "rubber ducky" antenna, steel spring belt clip, and a lanyard. Powered by one MP-AA battery, good for at least several days. Weight about 1 kg.

2
