Previous tcvr was a Kenwood/Trio TS830s which I purchased new in 1982 at the time of receiving my licence. I updated to the Pro 111 in 2009 – quite a difference, although in fairness, the 830 gave me v. good service and was an excellent tcvr in its day. However, the need to keep returning for a change in frequency, plus the lack of filtering, was a drawback.
