REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)
If your MK-2551A/U needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can tell us
what you dont like about your equipment. Let us know why you dont like the design or performance. Put it on an SF 368
Product Quality Deficiency Report). Mail it to: Commander, US Army Communications-Electronics Command and Fort

DESTRUCTION OF ARMY ELECTRONICS MATERIEL
Destruction of Army electronics materiel to prevent enemy use shall be in accordance with TM 750-244-2.
Administrative storage of equipment issued to and used by Army activities will have Preventive Maintenance Checks and
Services (PMCS) performed before storing. When removing the equipment from administrative storage, the PMCS
checks should be performed to assure operational readiness.
SAFETY, CARE, AND HANDLING
Voltage step potentials created by lightning strikes may make the soil near the MK-2551A/U more hazardous than the soil
surrounding a single ground rod, since the MK-2551A/U does not penetrate deeply into the earth. This phenomena would
be of very short duration, similar to the strike itself. Regardless of which grounding system is used, the soil in the
immediate vicinity of the ground will be potentially dangerous during a lightning discharge. For this reason, personnel
should make every effort to seek shelter within metal enclosures, vehicles, or other relatively safe locations when electrical
storms are imminent. This same precaution applies even if a grounding system is not installed, since personnel may also
become a possible target for a direct strike
