Check with Scott at http://www.american-milspec.com/
You may have to e-mail him as I don't see his CD-ROM manuals listed for some reason.

I run the RF-350K (RT-1446) with a RF-7210A ALE controller and RF-354 1KW auto amp for MARS. Great radio, but heavy!

Get a good microphone for it as the noice cancelling H-250 handset or M-80 mic are very narrow. I use a wide element Hiel mic with great results.

I was a Harris land mobile dealer about 20 years ago. At that time they were located at 1680 University Ave, Rochester, NY  14610. The address I am sure of; the phone number I recall is 716-244-5830, but that is from memory.

From what I can recall, that is what they called in the USAF a PACER BOUCE radio.  See if this link will help:

My father recently passed. I have a lot of Harris equipment to sell for her. Please make a resonable offer to n5gtd@cox.net and I will get back to you asap.

1446 have 2 in nice condition and working good with power and mic.

Complete big burtha 590H reciever, transmitter, amp, pwr supply, pin diode alt pwr supply. puts out 1200watts.

Have more items as well. If interested, just shoot me an email. I would like to find this equipment a good home with someone that appreciates it.

Ok, just installed the remote head for 2 x RT-1446's.
Military Club/MARS Station using Pacer Bounce Gear on Elmendorf AFB. So far only using B&W Folded Dipoles but plan is to get access to a Log and an HF Discone.

Question is can I adapt the mic/headset inputs to use a Heil Pro headset?  Tried asking Heil, no joy.
Looking through the military manuals didn't help a lot.
The actual pin outs for the mic and headset jacks are so far unknown.  If someone has those handy I would appreciate it.  All I can find for the U-229 is the A-F info on pins.  Still have yet to find a diagram that shows what is pin A, B, etc..
My own experience with these rigs is limited to a little operating time the radio back in the 80's.
Any help is appreciated.

Many years ago when I had a few RT-1446's I did use a Heil hedset on them as they require a dynamic mic. Really easy, the U-229 mic connector is the standard Mil pin out.

Pin D is the Mic
Pin C is PTT
Pin A is Gnd

As I recall I ended up using the Headset jack for the speaker audio vs using Pin B. They are wired to the same point though.

The Pin Outs are in the manual.
