Sorry no link available. Has anyone experienced any of these burns???? When the new generation of Land Rovers were procured surely someone would have had the foresight to measure up even if they measured the old ones. The Fcuk fairy has again visited the MOD It is claimed in the Daily Telegraph that the Army's new Bowman radios are giving the soldiers carrying them radiation burns, according to troops involved in trials of the Â£1.9 billion system. The radios are also much larger and heavier than the "old technology" Clansman sets they are designed to replace, the journal Defence Analysis reports today. Defence Analysis reports that the man-portable platoon level radio, which is carried on the back of the platoon signaller, has apparently given soldiers from the Royal Anglian Regiment radiation burns on certain power settings. The MoD said that there had been some problems with "minor radio-frequency burns" to soldiers carrying the Bowman radios but these had now been resolved. As for the weight problems, it was undertaking a post-design project with Land Rover to investigate the feasibility of an upgrade of front and rear axle weights to allow Bowman to be fitted to the Land Rover.
