    This is the main Radio used by the team. I took the antenna off of a kids' spy walky-talkies (you know, like the short range ones?) and hooked it up to the actual antenna of the main radio (formerly a water-jug) and that increased the range dramatically.

    My current RTO is my LT. I also have a smaller radio that I carry.






    here it is.

    Is this an actual radio or just a prop?

    Based on his comment that the antenna increased the range, I'm guessing that it's an actual radio... But I don't know, really...

    If you don't carry it, then what is the point?

    Doesn't mean he doesn't use it. Someone else might carry it.

    Just as constructive criticism, I think that it might look better if you spray painted it a solid color. In the picture it looks too "home made". But other than that, good job.

    I think it looks worn, kinda scratched up, y'know?



    anyways, I haven't actuallu USED it in a game, I've carried it, but it was a 2 V 1

    Yeah, I agree with you about the scratched up worn look but I'm just not a big fan on the different colors.

    yeah, the paint doesn't stick well to the plastic.

    So, bump! Made another one recently (one that will not look like utter **** in the field) actually based on a radio this time (PRC-77 to be exact)
