FT1500M

My Yaesu FT1500M (single band 2 metre mobile) which has sat in a drawer for rather a long time. Used it a few times for SOTA activations as after only paying £20 for it, I wouldn't be too bothered if it broke.
The 'aftermarket' power cable came with it and I never got round to picking off the 50 layers of tape joining it together.

There seem to be some screws missing from the case and the RJ11 connector for the microphone has got stuck in after the springy bit snapped off.

Not quite as sensitive as the Icom IC-2800 above 160MHz.
