The original design for the battery is very poor and I think done that way so one had to send the radio back to Kenwood and spend even more money to have the battery replaced. I modified mine to make the battery easy to replace. One I bought brand new and the other I got used from a fellow ham. Soldered and screwed everything back together and switched on, to be greeted by a loud clicking noise. A quick investigation followed; of course the binding posts are not insulated, so they where both grounded. Oh dear!

Didn’t matter if it was 120 degrees, it worked fine.I eventually had to sell it due to financial problems (Got $110 on ebay).The reason for the 4 you ask? It was an absolute NIGHTMARE to program. It was the most counter intuitive, convoluted programming scheme in the history of radios. There are many options for simple home brew 2m antennas. Discontinued PS-430 Power supply 13.8 VDC.
