Put me down for "wherever the CO wanted them to be" Fingers. Late war US forces were not the German army. Everything I read talks about locally modifying vehicles, not standardization. (In fact, I'm not sure even the German army was the German army in this context.) And remember they're stealing/salvaging additional radios right along--ones which will put them on the same net as the attached tanks or TDs or the air support especially. The armor is doing the same thing, and adding exterior phones so infantry can talk on the tank's interior net. If I were doing 28mm WWII, I'd be looking for someone selling a radio sprue.
