i remember reading that most of the time the power supply it at fault, because of dried up capacitors... It could be a lot of things of course... You might want to join the WhatsApp PRC-320 group. I can have you subscribed with your phone number, just send it to me in a PM..
Military Radios / Clansman RT-320
Last post by K6YIC - May 08, 2022, 07:53:59 PM
Greetings all,

So I was lucky enough to find a complete PRC-320 crank generator and all.

It's in near perfect condition except for it doesn't even power on.  It has had the sema4radios LSB modification and when powered by a 24v supply will show the battery condition when switched to Battery Check but nothing else. 

I have had a preliminary peak under the hood and everything seems to be in order with nothing burned or leaking. 

Maybe I am missing something simple.  This isn't my first military or green machine. (I have restored A PRC-47, SCR-21 and VRc-24)

Anyone run into a simple fix for a similar condition?

Found this virtual course on YouTube. It goes pretty deep into how radios actually work. I thought you guys would enjoy watching them. 


Because it was available there but I change my mind.

When I Will be licensed I think I realy have more fun Witherspoon old military radios.

I bought a few NEW one gallon paint cans, sanded the lid edge and can rim for good electrical contact and made Faraday cages for electrocics I want to TRY to protect incase of an EMP. I painted them in U,.S. Civil Defence YELLOW so that - at a glance - I know it's part of my 'Nuke Kit' and have a VERY GOOD Radiation survey meter inside as well. 

Paint cans contain:
Radio receivers AM/FM/SW broadcast, US NOAA Weather/safety band...
QRP transceiver
old Calculator, solar powered
old GPS (reciever only - no cell/wifi functions at all, 25 years old)
batteries, both alkaline and rechargable
Battery chargers,
Folding solar panel
Broadband radio scanner (Information is valuable!)
and anything that might be useful post-EMP.
My old slide rule is EMP proof, but I barely remember how to use it  ;-)

Keep PAPER MAPS and spare perscription/reading glasse in your vehicle.  Here in the USA a Topographic 'gazateer' map book is available for every U.S. State from Amazon. I keep one in the vehicle along with pick axe, shovel and manual 2+ ton chain hoist'winch. ALWAYS DRIVE ON THE   T O P 1/4 of your fuel tank!!!  When gas stations stop, you will probably not have ANY warning.
