This solid state (10.6 W x 3.8 H x 10.1 D inch) SSB CW AM 1.8 – 30 Mhz 100 W HF transceiver can also be used on FT-8, RTTY and other digital modes with a soundcard type interface and the appropriate software (neither included). It can be used on FM with the optional FM board installed (not included).
Comes with the original box, instruction manual, 7 & 8 pin accessory DIN plugs, spare fuse, 8 conductor mic plug and calibration cable, fused 12V DC power cord with battery clips and Kenwood MC42S hand microphone.
See my other listings for the matching PS-50 12V Switching 20 A Power Supply (not included).
Bright digital frequency display is easy to read and the radio is very easy operate without any confusing menu settings. All controls are on the front panel. There are a few scratches and related surface pitting on the top (see photos) but the rest of the transceiver looks and works great.
This would be a great way to get on HF without spending a fortune. Would also be good as a dedicated FT-8 radio, without tying up your main transceiver, or as a backup or RV rig.
