Kenwood TR-7730, Mobile VHF Transceiver

I have owned this one since new and has been stellar for tx and rx. Does not have tone board,but easily installed. Mine has tx of 42w on hi, and 9w on low. i would not part with it for all the menu rigs ther are. I also have a TR-7625 that has past the test of time and still doing excellent. N5AOW
