The Motorola Lunchbox – The PT500

 

I never owned one of these radios as I think they were too big and I really wanted an Icom 215 anyways but many hams had this radio as their base and mobile and yeah handheld (or hand lugged)

This brick or block had 2 channels with 10 watts out. RPT and TOR were popular repeaters those days
