Absolute minter up there in the picture, I've had a couple of these, paid £200 for one and £250 for the other. For a mint one like above I would stretch to £300 but deffo no more than that. Very good radio, good RX and TX, only basic features but more than what you need to get the QSO's. I bought one to use mobile but it was just a little bit too big to sit on the dash so got rid. Excellent starter HF set for home base.
