PREPARATION FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT
This section provides steps for packing the RT-1523 series radio. The radio will be properly packed before
placing in storage. All PMCS will be done prior to storage.

procedures to prepare for shipment.
There is no need for special preservation, packaging, packing, or marking. Under extreme climatic conditions,
corrosion-preventive compounds, moisture barriers, and/or desiccant material may be required.
