the history is alive  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have now my collection comleted with all versions. Yes... the TS 280 was first a 10W / 40 Ch / 145 MHz radio, got later 80 Ch and 50 Watts with the added amplifier. But I also have the TS 280 as the 4-band 144,145,146&147 MHz @ 40 Ch each band version. The TS 800 was the big brother with BCD coder switch to select the frequency. If anybody looking for maual or details... please feel free to contact me

great and easy to use.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I picked up one of these for £25 on eBay for use on my club net.
When I bought it I did not think I would use it a great deal but I have fallen in love with it.
Its really easy to use the audio is nice both on send a receive.
Its really solid and well made and has lots of power available but as a UK M3 mine is throttled back to 10 watt at this power its nice a cool even after hours of use.

On the down side its old fashioned and has no frequency read out. This doesn’t bother me at all.
