Kenwood TH-78A dual band handheld: $125, buyer pays postage.

In fair to good cosmetic condition, and 100% fully operational functional condition.  Some very light scratches on the screen lens, a couple of small dings here & there.
True twin band simultaneous VHF + UHF receive
Can dial up frequencies between 50-136, 136-180, 300-400, 400-512 & 800-950 MHz, though receiver may not actually function across the full range.  Transmitter only works in the 146 & 430 MHz bands.
I've tested receive on the local airport ATIS at 134 MHz, commercial two way allocations at 160, 415, 470 & 865 MHz and they work fine.
And of course, it works perfectly on the ham 2m and 70cm bands, both transmit & receive.
I've replaced the infamous & problematic Kenwood leaking electrolytic capacitors and cleaned up the PCB board; done as a preventative measure to avoid any issues developing in the future.  
The ME-1 extra memory module is fitted providing 250 memory channels total, but the optional TSU-7 CTCSS module is NOT present.
Comes with a Kenwood original dual band antenna, belt clip & BT-8 AA battery case, which you can use with standard AA batteries or rechargables. There's also a suitable 240 volt charger, but you can not charge NiCd batteries in the BT-8 dry cell case, Kenwood designed the BT-8 so this is impossible.  Can supply soft copies of the user instruction & technical service manuals if you desire.  What you see in the pictures is what you get.

24 x 16 x 6cm, 850g, should be around $9.30 postage to most places in Australia
