+Jim Conner I wouldn't be opposed to a phone with a VHF/UHF transceiver built in. Some Chinese company tried it, but I don't think that the devices were all that great.

A new toy...

I recently managed to buy a new hand-held from an on-line auction site. Well, when I say "new", I mean new for me - in fact it's a really old hand-held, an Icom IC-32AT - a dual-band 2m/70cm radio.

I think these started to appear in about 1989 (yes?) and at that time they were considered pretty fancy. Nowadays of course hand-held radios are much smaller, and have many more features than this radio. The IC-32AT has no computer interface, no GPS, no APRS, no general coverage receiver, and boasts a mind numbing twenty memories! And you know when the battery is flat when the transmit LED no longer works ! Simple, yes, but it works!

This particular unit was in superb condition, although it had no battery pack, so the price was very reasonable. A search on the internet revealed that replacement battery packs are readily available. The funny thing is that the replacement versions have considerably greater capacity, using better technology than the original (NiMH rather than NiCd), at a lower dollar price compared with the originals from twenty years ago. I was amazed the replacements were available at all. And, to top it off, the battery packs can be charged from four locations (two on the side, from a desk charger on the bottom, as well as power from the top) - and no, I don't know why. The capacity of the battery is amazing - I've only had to charge it twice in the two months since I have acquired it.

On the down side, this radio looks like a yuppy phone from the 1980s, and it is not compact by today's standards. But it's tough, and I suspect it'll be around for a few years to come, unless we all move to DMR.

Here it is, sitting on a (very) quiet 147.050 MHz, which is the local 2m repeater here in Christchurch. Waiting...
