Clansman Radio and PRR

Personal Role Radios are not to be used as a replacement for the PRC 349 in any Signals Training.

The training package is being revised to include the PRR at the end of 1 Star Signals to enable 2 Star Fieldcraft training to be conducted more effectively. When Clansman is withdrawn after 1 Sep 2015, the PRC 349 will be replaced with a VHF radio and the PRC 320 with an HF radio.

Authorised Radio Equipment

Your attention is drawn to a letter sent out by HQ Support Command on 15 April 2013. In which it states:

The Clansman PRC 349 and PRC 320 radios in use with the ACF and CCF have been subject to a Safety Review which concludes that these radios are low-risk equipment and can remain in safe service with cadets. No other Clansman radios are authorised for use with cadets.

Please ensure strict compliance with this directive and backload all non-authorised military radio equipment including the PRC 321, PRC 350, PRC 351 and PRC 352 systems to SNCO Army Reserves & Cadets at DSCIS.
