Abstract : The report is a complete documentation of the development of the AN/URC-78(XE-1)/V Ultra-Reliable Lightweight VHF-FM Radio System for the 30 to 80 MHz frequency range. The system is packaged for use in three different configurations; namely, manpack, vehicular, and airborne applications. The receiver-transmitter unit, common for all configurations, is the heart of the total system. Each configuration is discussed; first from its operational standpoint and then followed by a delineation of the signal paths, its modules, hybrids, and associated circuitry. Performance summaries are provided where applicable. Photographs of the units and module assemblies, are presented throughout the report.
