After nearly two years of development, the backpack-carried, battery-powered, voice radio receiver/transmitter known as the SCR-300 was accepted in 1942. Described in the War Department Technical Manual TM0-11-242 as primarily intended as a “walkie-talkie for foot combat troops,” it earned the nickname "Walkie-Talkie." First used in action in the Pacific Theater, special precautions were taken during assembly to prevent failure in the extreme heat and humidity. An anti-fungal coat of varnish was applied over the entire assembled circuit board, and the use of rubber grommets to seal the case sections effectively prevented moisture-induced damage to the radio’s electronic components. Motorola produced nearly 50,000 units during the course of the war.
