The ARC-27 was a military UHF AM radio that operated between 225.0-399.9 MHz and transmitted at 9 watts. It featured a separate guard receiver for monitoring 243 MHz, while simultaneously monitoring the active channel selected. The radio utilized vacuum tubes and was pressurized to prevent electrical arcing at high altitudes.
