Old Flames Die Hard: nDi HC-1400 FM 2M Mobile Transceiver

Above is a photo of an old nDi FM 2M Mobile Transceiver of mine which covers 144-148MHz has repeater offsets and power of 25 watts or 5 watt selectable output. PLL VFO (5/10 KHz steps) with 3 memories. Sensitivity at 12dB less than 0.3uV, Selectivity More than 60dB at +-15 KHz, Image Rejection More Than 60dB. Voltage 13.8 VDC +- 15%, Current Drain MAX 5.5 Amps. Impedance 50 ohms - SO239. Dimensions 182W*66H*258D mm. Weight 3.4 Kg. Manufacture Date: 1983.

One of my first rigs and still in pretty good condition today. This is now quite a rare radio as I believe not many are still around.

Hardly used now, but kept for sentimental reasons. Below is another view of this nice looking mobile transceiver:

I've got one of those! Bought by my dad in 1978 (iirc), then passed to me when I got my license.

Hello!

I just got my NDI 1400 this week on eBay for $41.00 (what a deal!!!) Its a cool old rig and SOLID as a brick!

I collect old radios, so this one will make a nice addition to the collection.

Still trying to figure out what the CROSS button is for however.

Cool old radio, if you ever find one, get it!
