Check out a UK site called Army Radio.  Also, search on one of several Chinese model numbers such as the 102E or the XD6.  There's a fair amount of data out there, including a Hong Kong collector's site.

K3HVG,
OK, went to Army Radio Sales and read the articles by William Howard about radios used in the Vietnam War. Mostly Chicom built units.

Very interesting reading!

Have already seen the Hong Kong site and a few other's. There's really not a lot of info out there, I think the articles on the Army Radio Sales site is about the most comrehensive.

I've become interested in Chicom radios since I picked up a US R-174/URR and complete AN/GRR-5 with another one on the way. Curious how the "other side" stacked up against our gear.

If you come across a 102E/XD6 radio set, I wrote the mods for the ac power supply and how to get them on the air, alignments, et al.  Be happy to share the info with you.  I have one one that air and they work very well, indeed.
