    Motorola HT220 – collector quality – never put into service

    $120 complete (without new battery) -

    Add - $37 for a new battery from Empire with 2017 date code. You can order it yourself from ebay (seller name – Gold Coast Dynamics) or I can include one for the same price $37. Gold Coast Dynamics is where I order them from and they are great batteries. I can include an old battery free of charge (for display only- they are pretty dead)

    Nominated as one of the 100 most significant inventions of the 20th Century by PC Magazine.

    If you were a ham in the 1970’s you envy the Motorola HT220. This 6 channel model with the 5 Watt PA was the most popular. This one is in mint condition and definitely is of “collector quality” suitable for a public or private museum.

    Everything is frequency correct for 2 meter operation (136.00 -- 150.800 MHz band split NUD6032AH main board): NLD-6347A PA Deck, NLD-6421A 4 frequency deck

    Check out the pictures. All channels transmit with error of less than 500 Hz. You would be hard pressed to find an HT220 in this band split in better condition. It has never been put into service.

    5 watt module (with conservative Motorola specs – this model puts out 8 watts as shown on the Bird 43 watt meter) Sensitivity 0.5uV on all channels. I have tuned it back to 4 watts because it will blow the 2A fuse inside the front cover if you leave it at 8 watts.

    Complete with Motorola Rapid Charger NLN68978 – like new condition – never put into service.

    Rubber duck antenna- proper mode with green label (136-150 MHz)

    Proper whip antenna - 19 inches (not the mid band 17 inch one)

    6 – channels

    Fully tuned to spec on the following frequencies for the SF Bay Area.

    Ch 1 146.06 T 146.67R W6BUR – transmit crystal is dead
    Ch 2 146.10 T 146.70R K6GWE
    Ch3 146.25 T 146.85R K6QFO
    Ch4 146.22 T 146.82R WB6AAE
    Ch5 146.49 T 146.49R simplex
    Ch 6 146.52 T 146.52R simplex

    Please email me if you have any questions -


    I will be glad to answer any questions

    CONUS only - actual USPS shipping ( will vary between $6-13- depend on zone)

    Thanks for looking.
