Is an FM handheld with frequency coverage that includes 6 meters, 1 watt circa power out, very big and weighty, but so cool! 6 fixed channels programmable with internal contraves.
The radio is a SEM 52-S/FZ/46 and is not born as an handheld: is user on tanks with a mount, see http://www.greenradio.de/e_sem52sfz.htm, but is useable as handheld using a SEM 52-S battery pack (delivered with the transceiver).
I've also the antenna, a long (93 cm!!!) SEM 52A antenna, with fits perfectly in SEM 52S
- First Job: rebuid battery pack
- Second Job: arrange an alternative antenna
The antenna is 54 cm long. Using the FT-817 as a tunig tool, I cut the antenna until a dip in SWR happens (I stop at 1.5:1). The antenna is now 36cm tall (from bottom of BNC connector to top of the whip. See the shorted antenna mounted on SEM 52-S
Next job: building a speaker-microphone (to do)
