I’m migrating to commercial radios and HF, so my Kenwood TM-271A is in excess of my needs. It was used only for two weeks when I was in Pakistan last year. It got 4.5/5 on 86 reviews*. The dealer performed MARS mod, so it covers the entire VHF spectrum of 136~174 both for receive and transmit. Great audio with the front firing speaker. Comes with original box and manual.
Great discount offered on bundled package if you get my Diamond CP22E antenna with this radio. I don’t mind dealing with more than one person at a time. If you are getting this radio and your friend needs the antenna, you still get the bundle price. Drop me an email for pricing info. If I still have it in my storage, I’ll include a 50’ RG-8 coax as a ‘thank you’ for relieving me off bringing this radio back to New York for resale.
The CP22E is an efficient antenna. It did simplex with Peshawar (AP2JK) from Swabi on a full scale, a video of which is posted on YouTube on my channel.
