Clansman PRC-344, Handheld VHF/UHF Transceiver

This is an AM military airband radio, not FM.

It is only useable by authorized personnel on the assigned frequencies, so beware. I does, however make a great military ops monitor. Much more inexpensive than the Magnavox PRC-113, but limited to 50 KHz channels. Other than that, a very good value.

Clansman PRC-344, Handheld VHF/UHF Transceiver

I purchased (2) sets over a year ago. They were operational from 220.0 to 400.0 MHz. They work great on the ham band 222.0 to 225.0 mhz. I believe a qualified tech could mod these rigs to cover the ham band 222.0 to 225.0.
Great operational radio.
