The Motorola MX-350 circa: 1977 to 90’s

This GEM was sitting in a box of electronic junk to be disposed of sometime in the mid-90’s as I recall. Long since discontinued use. Pre-Cell phone era these were our primary Tech Opns and Editorial field communications devices. Motorola tough and heavy. Real Metal. With custom leather cases that today would cost several hundred dollars. Used widely by Law enforcement and public safety (and Washington DC Media). I can’t remember how long the battery lasted. But it was many hours with the big one. Driving rain storm, summer heat. Never fazed these radios. I’ve still got it. Motorola MX-350
