great radio  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one of these back in 1989. They were a current radio at the time. The audio quality on it was always excellent, both receive and transmit. The construction of the radio made it possible to use batteries from the then current radios on it, as well as the speaker mic and other accessories. This radio is still a solid radio many years later, put a new battery on it that is more than triple what the batteries of 1989 could do. An amazing performer for its time and now. Solid radio, heavy by today's standards but very solid.
