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

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..
