Great old radio  Time owned: more than 12 months
I had one of these in the 1970s and my father had two more. We used them for several years. They were great in their day. In the later years we used GLB synthesizers on them. Later they got replaced with fully synthesized rigs. Thirty watts sure beat the Regency rigs of the day and so did the receiver.

Oldie But Goodie.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Nice little 2m FM mobile rig, usually has the bracket and mic with it but this one didn't.
Has nice edgewise meters for RF, discriminator and SWR. HI-LO power switch. Many nice features.
Indep3ndent selection of transmit and receive frequencies. Uses a 4-pin mic connection.
Solidly built 1970s crystal-controlled
transceiver that will serve you well.
Great for simplex, repeaters, packet etc.
