In my collection I have this Indicator Frequency Channel ID 572
on the front of it, it has the aircraft call number 10169
Can anyone match the call number to an aircraft type serial number?
further info: indicator is dated Dec 1961
It came from McClellan Field Sacrmento CA
Thanks in advance

Air Force serial 51-0169 was an C-124A Globemaster II.  A big cargo bird used by a couple units at Travis AFB not too far away.

Thanks Walt, but that indicator was not used in the C-124 and number does not match to account for the extra 0.
1-10169 was used on F-84, but it did not use this type of indicator
I checked again and came up with possible
61-0169 which is F-105D-25-RE Thunderchief
This type of indicator was used in the F-105. 
however 0169 was shot down Oct 28, 1967. Pilot POW.
could the indicator have been removed from this aircraft before it went to Vietnam? 
any other opinions?
