    Scored a nice little 228A today. Only 5/25 watts. Mic has DTMF on the back side. It's in great shape and works good. Local dudes say audio is nice. Nice to have an older functional 2 meter mobile devoid of nuisance menus.

    I think these came out in early 90's. Just thought I'd brag about it.

    Great stuff. I've a soft spot for the older simple single banders. I've been on the lookout for a clean IC 22s . Nostalgia as I get older I guess.....

    Just looked at a picture. That IC-22 looks sweet. The analog meter is a nice touch. Basic controls. I like it. Be a good little packet rig.

    The older stuff is very well made and just works. I have an IC-38a for 220, the below picture is not mine.

    Of all the older single band radios I've always thought the Kenwood had the best looking ones...
