Modifying the Czech RF-10 manpack battery

If you collect ex-military radio gear you may find that battery packs may no longer charge or that it maybe difficult to find the right charger for the battery type. In some cases this leads to re celling the battery pack which is the route I chose to get the Czech RF-10 manpack on the air.

I measured the internal dimensions of the pack and found a lipo battery (7.4v) that fitted snugly into the case.
