I’m in the process of moving to a new QTH and I thought it would be a good idea to resurrect an old ICOM HT so I could stay in contact with my XYL when we drove in separate cars. The only thing wrong with the old IC-2SAT is a dead internal and external battery. The internal battery was no problem, the cost was a nominal $15 or so shipped from Amazon, but the cheapest price I could find on an external battery was a whopping $44 or more !!!
During a search on Amazon, I came across a link to a dual band (2m and 70cm) HT that was so cheap, I thought the price was a mistake. Can you really buy this thing for $33 and change? I started looking for reviews and sure enough, reviews for the most part are glowing with praise about the transmit and receive quality, battery life, etc. Check out the reviews at eHam.net….http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/10349.
