The #590 has no radio, in the front and the rear compartments… Sad, but it wasn’t important. I was focused, as I explained, on a good looking condition.

But, as I look on other Suggas, mine has still its radio table (with the operators tables, some cables, black out panels (between the front and rear compartments, and on the windows), the safety belts and the lights.

Well, after few months, it seems a virus infected me, because I would like now to refurbish my Sugga as it was in use in the Swedish Army. And name it therefore Raptgbil 915, after a deep breath if you see what I mean…

Finding information about the radio equipment is not difficult. Here can be found some interesting links:

The first one is www.tp21.org, the Morten’s site where a lot of nice info can be found.

On the following one, www.soldr.se, there’s a section where the radio installation is described. This is interesting too, because it is a description of the radioinstallation as in the military book:

May be I forgot other sites, but I would add these if necessary.

I regret not to know the past of my Sugga. I would like to know how it was radio equipped. What kind of radios, … it’s not easy because as you see there’s a lot of antennas on my Sugga! 3 antennas. But 2 are missing: the “front” one (which is fastened on the right side of the radiator grill) and a one on the right side of the car, between the front door and the engine bay panel)

It took time for me to link the antennas and the type of radios it would have been in my Sugga. Reading the documents was the only thing to do… but in Swedish language, not easy… hopefully there are schemas!
