  1. Doesn't seem like the money is coming fast enough, but I've been out of the game for 4 years.
  2. It all has to do with center wing box life hours, and yes, the multiplication factor for MCs is very high. It may have already had one CWB change, I don't know.
  3. We know two things. There is 28 VDC going to the radio, and the radio is turning on via a ground from somewhere. I don't have the connector layout for J2, but is Pin A anywhere near pin U? Here's what I would do if I was working on the aircraft. Remove the ground terminal lug from the aircraft frame going to pin A on J2. I would think that if you removed the power and chassis grounds lugs going to the chassis and power grounds of J1, pins P & E, that the radio would be dead. Having said all of this, it may be worth getting a new plug for J2, and pulling all wires out of the old plug, verifying wire numbers, and repinning into the new connector. Good luck.

  4. Are there other pins next to pin U that are sources of ground? Maybe there is a pin locking tab from another pin touching pin U.
  5. It is the same battery. The amperage supplied is different depending on how fast the battery is discharged. I just posted the paragraph out of our newer electrical maintenance book. The USAF does not use the 1C-130B-2-7 any more.
  6. You could start by calling the C-130 Foreign Military Sales office at Warner Robins. 001-478-222-1343. I have never had to do the process, and I have been retired for almost 5 years. Good luck.
  7. I wish I could say I'd ever be back down South, but I doubt it. Never can tell, though, glad I could help.
  8. Check your messages. Here is the rail info.
  9. Someone just can't send you the book, it has to be requested from Warner Robins ALC. If a person sent you a copy of it, it may be out of date. If you need further help, let me know. DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT - Distribution authorized to US Government agencies and their contractors (Administrative or Operational Use) (01 January 2006).

Violations of these export laws are subject to severe criminal penalties.
  10. In the newer book, TO 1C-130H-2-24GS-00-1, it just states a 24V 36AH battery.
  11. It was at Dyess before Elmendorf. I think someone would have questioned me on the strapped circuit breaker at the 'Dorf'. I think those Dyess birds had APQ122V5 RADAR in them as well. They ended up putting the APN59 back in them.
  12. The date's on my iPhone calendar, I'm safe. Mazurb, if it was a test installation, the wires should be orange. You may have to cut some string or tiestraps back to identify the wire number. Since the breaker is strapped, why not remove the breaker, then cap off the wire?
  13. We had that aircraft in Alaska at one time. I know on the pilot's lower circuit breaker panel there were two, but marked VHF XMTR and RCVR. The regular VHF circuit breakers were on the co-pilot's upper panel from what I remember, but it has been a long time. I don't know if that aircraft was sent to Yokota before Little Rock or not, but it was one of our regular H models.
  14. What n1dp said. could be the old FM radio in the wing. You need to check wire numbers. There could have been an VHF FM radio installed. Please let us know..

    HF radio

    I don't know what kind of C-130 you are working on, but no USAF aircraft that I know of has ever had the HF radio tied into the WOW circuit. My out of date jacking book doesn't show pulling the breakers. I remember they had to be strapped to go into a hangar to prevent the HF radios from transmitting. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for some systems to be secured. All it takes is one incident and the engineering staff will put something in the book to prevent it from happening again. Even if the HF wiring went through the WOW circuit wiring, there's no way it would cause it to transmit without hitting a MIC switch. All of this being said, I've been retired for four years. Maybe it was decided that the HF shouldn't be able to transmit on the ground at all for safety reasons. That would mean that the WOW switch would have to be jumpered to enable an Op Ck. As Natops1 said, check with your radio guys.
  16. Good, I couldn't find anything on it either.
  17. There is a test in 1C-130B-2-5. What do you have for technical manuals?
  18. Lars is suffering form advanced Alzheimer's and is not able to communicate. I asked Bob about him last month.
  19. The -1 doesn't really have a good one where the whole panel is shown like the pilot and copilot sides. This is cut and pasted together. I've got no old pictures.
  20. Not sure exactly what you are looking for, Bob. I still have some old T.O.s but they don't show the whole panel. LORAN was a huge long receiver box and a green glass tube screen display next to it.
  21. I wish more people would use the bio.It's nice to know what they have done and where they are now.
  22. There was never a warning in the install book that I am aware of. Is this on an ISO inspection card?
  23. Nope, I can't find anything.
