MB Antenna mounting holes for MP-50 Mast bracket

Post by Wild Bill Kelso » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:28 am

Hi there, can anybody help me to find the correct position for my MP-50 Mast bracket?
I mean where to place/the measuremet for the 4 holes on drivers side.
I only found pictures but no dimensions...

Many thanks for any tips.

Look at TM 11-2715

They have it on Army Radio Sales website. https://armyradio.com/TM11-2715.html

You did not mention a radio... for the MP-50, the SCR-510/610 mount on the rear of the driver's side, the SCR-508/608 mount on the rear of the passenger's side and the SCR-193 is the location on the drivers side in front of the rear tire.

When looking at the website click "Assembly and installation."

Just a note, most ended up on the rear as they would get knocked off by a tree or passing vehicle if mounted on the side.....
I can bet there was a Army Motors or PS mag article or such written up about it.

I was thinking about it and will mount the bracket on the backside like the french did after war but I also have seen it on a D-Day picture on an Willys...
