Rare and classic  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I recently acquired one of these rarities from eBay for under $40. What is even more shocking to me is that it came with the manual, the leather case, and the stock battery and antenna in superior condition.

PROS: Digital display, scan mode, included DTMF pad, legend status due to its rarity, received audio is FANTASTIC for a small radio, nearly silent squelch tails, speaker-mic connection same as Icom's

CONS: Heavy..heavier than a 2AT from the same era, no PL tones, lack of ANY aftermarket parts, etc.

Glad to have this museum piece...
