Special power supplies
The PE-162 is a gasoline driven generator which supplies 150 watts at d-c voltages of 6.2 and 500 volt directly to the AN/GRC-9 without the use of a DY-88/GRC-9.
For more info technical manual TM 11-971.
There is also a German version of this generator the Eisenman BGTA 150/6-500 C1 which is more compact and uses a Sachs engine. The French version looks like the US, but has a much weaker frame.
To make a soldiers live more easy the German Bundeswehr used a special frame to mount the GN-58(*) to convert the generator into a home trainer.
There is also a Norwegian manufactured mains powersupply the RA-88/GRC-9.
The R-77 is a German, Telefunken manufactured receiver which is actually the basic receiver RT77/GRC-9 with a special transistorized power supply mounted together in a case. It is often fitted as a monitoring receiver in Unimog radio teletype stations.
