Early 6m hand-held  Time owned: more than 12 months
While AZDEN is no longer in the Amateur Radio market (at least here in North America as far as I know) they had quite the line up of FM transceivers back in the 80s and into the 90s. The AZ-61 was their 6m mono-band HT. In it's era it was one of the very few of such radios. Unfortunately it was and remains a complicated radio to program. Very well built and rather large compared to today's HTs that are capable of 6m operation. But in it's day it was quite the rig to have. I rate it as a 3 when compared to what's out there today. Back in it's day it might've been worth a 4 but by no means a 5. If you're looking for a cheap 6m HT and can find a good used one go for it!
