Information on RCA two-way radio equipment
Compiled by Mike Morris WA6ILQ

The 500s were hybrid radios and could be compared to the Mastr-Pro vintage - separate RX and TX strips. The 500s were all solid state except for the final which could be either a normal or an instant-heat tube. The UHF 500s had one useful design feature - the TX PA deck was connected to the exciter with a 50 ohm cable. Removing the PA deck and the transistorized HV power supply turned the 500 into a full duplex continuous duty 10w radio.
In the 1960s RCA also made tube-style trunk-mount two-way radio equipment, similar to the GE Progress Line and the Motorola Twin-V radios. At the moment we don't have any info on that vintage equipment.
