Great radio, loose the tear drop DTMF mic.

Kenwood TM-241E, Mobile VHF Transceiver

Got this rig from a friend in a trade, then found out why, final pack was blown. Only $70.00 for a new RF Final pack for it from RF Part. The new pack puts out 32W, instead of the 50W rated, but that still works for me. Being early 1990's rig, it only has 20 memory channels, which works for scanning while driving. The original tear drop mics can get old and develope a mind of their own to TX at will, so I suggest replacing it with the newer Kenwood MC-58DM 8 pin mic. Yes, there are complaints about the display messing up, but it is self fixable, and can be done better than what Kenwood did. Great ears on RX, TX is Kenwood quality expected. Programing memory channels is easy, and VFO FREQ tuning is easy with the 1 MHz quick steps. (Go from 2M to 162MHz WX stations.) Does what I need it to for 2M.
