Solid radio, full duplex BTW similar to a VX-7R but sized more like a FT-60. Battery pack was NiCad, which was less ideal and the AA adapter only took 4 cells, so reduced power. Maybe there are aftermarket NiMH packs now, though.

It had a funky, cool hand mic with an LCD display that showed some of the same stuff as the front display. If you get the radio, it's worth watching for the MH-29A2B for it.
