Radio warning decal placement?

Post by mutt and jeff » October 22nd, 2021, 9:07 pm

Have two radios and two antennas on the MUTT. Ordered this set of 5 decals/stickers for it. Seems like some I will need duplicates of and some I will only need one. No placement instructions and having trouble finding images on the internet. Any guideance as to the decal placement for this set? And, which ones should I have duplicates of for the second set and antenna?

Thanks in advance.

On my Barstow 151, which was a MRC-183 radio jeep, a very much faded placard was next to the ignition switch. I think it said no starting with radio on. That was the only decal on the jeep. I believe lot of decals are just to please the civy owner and where actually never used.

I remember the radio jeep, an/mrc-83, had stenciled on the canvas by the antenna mount, a warning not to touch the antenna while transmitting.The jeep was called M38A1, the radio(TRC-75) took up the whole back seat area.Sure hope my memory is right.The other stickers I don't remember.The 50 years time lapse might have something something to do with it.The antenna was in sections that you screwed together.The only radio jeeps that I used the M 151 were MRC-110, MRC-109.RT-524, Receiver-442 ? The antenna was a 10 foot whip that was not screwed together.I will probably edit later on as maybe my memory will get better.There was a data plate on the dash/inside rear fender?Oh ya they had a RT-505 with an amplifier.The RT unit was the same as the An/PRC-25, 77.They had an An/PRC-47 too, lot bigger/heavier radio STOP I am wandering from the subject.The modifier can delete if desired
