--now, i don't know about this, but are you sure there is a
definite division between the command and liaison groups?
for example, the ATB was the "command set", i.e. pilot's
voice radio, in *some* PBY at *some moments in time*, while
at the same moments in time, it was the *only* radio on the
Kingfisher scout observation plane, hence "liaison radio",
and operated by the radio op - rear seat gunner. ( "radio
gunner" ) oh, and i should say, *some* Kingfishers at
*some moments in time*, as i see by a photo that another of
the same plane seems to show RUGF control boxes.
