US Navy RTTY Equipment - Terminal Units
(Combined Keyer + Converter)

RTTY is also called RATT (Radio Teletype)


AN/URA-17E diversity system is composed of  two CV-3510A/UG
AN/URA-17F diversity system is composed of two CV-3510B/UG
AN/URA-17G diversity system is composed of two CV-3510C/UG

Note: AN/URA-17, -17A, -17B, -17C, -17D are receiving converter systems only, using CV-483/URA-17

I really need the manual - 
TM 11-5895-1370-12-3

Looks like it can operate on 220 or 110vac (400Hz), or 28vdc

Not clear what these connectors usually go to.
