The German manufactured Hagenuk RA-1 which was in use with the Belgian armed forces.

The French manufactured TRT AM 66 A which was in use with the French, Norwegian and Portugese armed forces.

The AM 66 A has the same size and look as the AN/GRC-9 and utilizes three (3) 2E22 valves in parallel to boost the output to approximately 90 Watts.

There is also a mains supply available for the AM-66 the BA-224A



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.

The U.S. manufactured PE-162


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.
