This week we want you to create a military radio then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #MilitaryRadio.

Members of military around the world require communication capabilities in remote areas not serviced by traditional infrastructure. High frequency radio overcome the challenges of operating in such locations, providing for transmission of voice, email, fax and data signals without relying on any supporting infrastructure. This week we want you to create one of these in 2D or 3D. You could go old school, high end and even portable.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.

Third Place

Weekly Drills 047 Military radio - SCR-300 | The Rookies
This my first entry into a weekly drill challenge and for it I picked the SCR 300 field radio. This portable radio was used by the US Signal Corps during World War II. It was mounted on a soldier’s back and was the first radio to be nicknamed “Walkie Talkie”.

Honourable Mention

Handheld Military radio | The Rookies
my project for the rookie weekly drills, due to time limitations I decided to make a handled radio instead of a full radio set.
