This radio is one year old and is in perfect condition.

I usually had this in my pocket or in my ditch bag as spare commo. It is also nice to keep in the car for weather reports and monitoring traffic. In addition, the reception on this radio is impressive. I talked to a friend over 7 miles away on it - Saugatuck pier head to Holland pier head and it was perfectly clear.

I used this radio intermittently for a week up at Lake Lipigon on a single charge.

The reason I would like to find a buyer for this radio is because it has a lithium ion battery pack and it will be sitting unused for about 2 years if I keep it. These batteries have a half life and I would rather see it go to someone who could use it over the next few years VS sitting in my storage unit.

Price is flexible
