I've had one of these - viewtopic.php?f=26&t=43745

It had the LSB modification and was 'fun' to use.
I worked into Europe on several occasions and it always generated conversation when I told them what I was using.

This radio takes up quite a bit of desk space so bare that in mind before you buy one

That would be 'Raven' or 'Lone Wolf' to his mates ;)

A DC to DC Converter like this one:
eBay auction No: 122178592557

This will convert a 12VDC PSU to 24VDC, just mount the module in a metal box, I used an old Clansman metal battery case..

Looking for someone to do the LSB mod - I've had a look at how to do it online and it might be a bit tricky for soldering "skills"
Is there anyone in the northeast who could do it for a fee??
