Aquired this radio some years ago at one of the Blackpool rallies and have not done much with it since. It appeared to have some modifications to make it suitable for packet which have since been removed. It’s good for over 10W and has 16 channels programmed in for the FM allocation of 70MHz.

To date I have been unable to obtain any technical information about this radio, indeed even a Google search returns nothing.

The current plan is to add this set into the mobile setup with a 1/4 wave, this is going to involve adding a homebrew remote head unit as modern card really do not lend themselves to large metal boxes bolted underneath the glove box anymore. More than likely this will require the use of a PIC microcontroller to replace the BCD thumbwheel switches and have a nice LCD display alongside a simple up/down channel switch.
