There were over 15 different BC-348 models manufactured in the USA starting
1938. The total number of BC-348 receivers manufactured during WWII exceeded
100,000. Most massive production was on 1943 orders which have been awarded to
Belmont Radio (BC-348-R) and Wells Gardner (BC-348-Q).
The BC-348 receivers were first used as part of SCR-260 and
SCR-287 liaison radio sets together with BC-349 and BC-375
transmitters, and later as part of AN/ARC-8 liaison radio along with
AN/ART-13 radio transmitting set. WHD = 460 х 210 х 230 mm. There
