    I'm going to sell a few of my extra extra backpack radios.

    Yeasu FT-70G HF/SSB backpack transceiver.
    It looks & works great. If I didn't have another one I'd never part with this one.
    I've just installed new BCD frequency control switched & aligned the synthesizer.
    2-30mc 100cps steps(modifiable for 160), 5/15watts(adjustable), AM/LSB/USB/CW.

    Radio set includes:
    FT-70G transceiver.
    Unmodified FC-70M antenna tuner.
    FNB-70 battery box/nicad battery(takes a charge).
    CSC-70 Backpack carry bag/harness.
    MH-17ab speaker/mic.
    Service manual, factory original.
    $1150+ shipping & paypal fees if used.
    If you don't want the CSC-70 pack I'll keep it & you can take off $25.00.


    #1, SC-130, looks like crap but works. This was my primary PedMob radio
    last year before I got my FT-70 & PRC-1099. Both carry handles
    broken off, the threw connector to the battery box is missing. I
    connected a standard 2 pin automotive type power connector for
    attachment to batteries in the battery box(nothing permanent). Puts out
    about 10 watts. Temporary modification to clarifier control for
    continuous frequency coverage on TX(works 60mtrs great). Choice of
    original unfinished battery box or CY-2562/PRC-25 battery box(either
    works well), three pin power connector/cable if wanted. $350.00+
    shipping & paypal fees(if used).

    #2, SC-130D, looks & works good. Adjusted of 20 watts output. Temporary modification to
    clarifier control for continuous frequency coverage on TX(works 60mtrs
    great). Comes with antenna mount base(but no mount), & very hard to
    find original URC-87 'D' cell battery box, three pin power
    connector/cable if wanted. Only flaw I can detect is that the ball
    detent for the 100kc dial has fallin out but still works with no
    problems. $675.00+ shipping & paypal fees(if used).

    #3, SC-120D, late issue uses U-229 type audio connectors, very good
    condition but unchecked(no xtals). Does fire up & have audio output
    with white noise. Has antenna side mount base(but no mount). $285+
    shipping & paypal fees(if used).

    Shipping weight the Southcoms is 16lbs. The Yaesu will ship at 24lbs.

    I also found one side mount antenna bracket & a couple of the original tactical dipoles that were issued with these.

    I would trade towards a QRO solid state amp.
