I'd buy it if I hadn't just bought one on eBay a couple months ago. Nice
portable radio.

I am working on a switching arrangement to decode the outputs of the
CAT/Linear jack in Linear mode to switch an external relay from the VHF
jack between 144 and 432 MHz antennas automatically. That will save some
time switching between beams in a VHF contest.
