Reviews Summary for Azden - PCS2800
Azden - PCS2800 Reviews: 2 Average rating: 4.5/5 MSRP: $200
Description: This rare 10 meter FM transceiver is capable of 10 watts of output power from 28.0 to 29.7 Mhz on either split (repeater)or simplex operation. (not sure why you would want an FM only rig to output on 28.0 but this one can) The front panel is removable to let you put the radio under the seat or in the trunk if you have the optional interconnection cable. The supplied microphone has controls for volume, squelch and channel up and down.
I purchased this radio new in 1988. I have used it for more than 20 years without any problems. When the band is open, working the ten meter repeaters along the US Pacific coast from here in South Africa with ten watts from my car is quite a thrill.
Product is in production.

Good radio for it's intended purpose  Time owned: more than 12 months
Owned this rig back in the early 90's. Used it as a 10 meter remote radio on my UHF repeater. Easy to interface, program and good all around, well built rig. I'd like to find another as they have just enough channels to scan the repeaters and two simplex frequencies.

Compaired to todays flood of bogus 10 meter radios, the Azden PCS2800 is FAR above them in quality!!! If you have a choice between one of the garbage 10/11 meter radios and an old Azden PCS2800, get the Azden!

Great little radio. No problems after 20 years of operation  Time owned: more than 12 months
Basic rig with very few bells and whistles. Easy to use when mobile.
