Dual role PRR into a Harris 117

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by Big_Kahoona, May 9, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am after a bit of help with a job I have been asked to carry out. I have an artillery guy who has a dual role PRR and a harris 117 radio. He has asked me to make him a cable to connect his PRR and Harris 117 together so that he can talk on his Harris 117 using his PRR. He has given me the 117 connection and the prr female connector but what I am after is the pinouts to connect them together. He has told me that he had a cable in Iraq but gave it to the guy that took over from him. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.
  2. Not wanting to poop on an illegal mod, but if this is a requirement why not staff it as such so that everyone can have this ability? I only say this because there are issues with dual role PRR. Might want to chat to the FofS before cracking on. You should be able to get the appropriate pin out by emailing HARRIS or looking in the 117F handbook which comes with each radio.
  3. If this arrangement was "official" you wouldn´t have to bodge the cable.

    Think to yourself "is this arrangement likely to damage either the Harris or the PRR?"

    Make the cable up, draw up the schmatics and photo it. THen GEM it or chat to the FofS or Tiffy Tels. Maybe even a YofS.
  4. This has already been done. And if the arty guy is a FAC he should be getting one soon. Tell him to speak to his higher authority.
  5. Having did the 117F instructor course last week there is no 'official' cable that does this, however there is a new harris secure prr cant remeber the name but this can work from secure prr to 117 and the have had ranges up to 2km on it
  6. whilst it may not be official to harris. one has been made and is available to forward air controllers.
  7. Ohh, why not give away our equipment capabilities on an open forum?
  8. the thread is can the 117 be hooked up to the prr. answer yes. whithout a bodge
