Waveform vs radio
Sinncgars is both a series of radios and also a waveform implemented on several software defined radios. Either there should be a disambiguation page, a note, or the waveform information should be included here. There are several radios still in production that use sincgars waveforms. This could lead to confussion if the waveform is not at least mentioned. I will be glad to do the change if anyone agrees. Williambhunter (talk) 14:12, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

OK - if you really think that this is exactly the same as the public domain version and is thus indistinguishable from it, then reinstate the article. But in the future please state in the edit summary that text was taken from a public domain source - otherwise you will be going through this same drill with somebody else. --mav
Despite what is referenced in several web pages (even robins.af.mil), Magnavox, not Raytheon built the first ARC-222. I found one reference to back this up at www.forecastinternational.com/Archive/dc/dc1879.doc. Additionally, I was the AF test engineer for the ARC-222 until Dec 1995, and I still have the coffee mug from Magnavox for the program.
