    Icom IC-2730A dual band HAM rig, google it for specs. Complete as shipped but one connector (modem style) has been cut off the cable that links the head unit with the radio; and the 12ga power cord is cut short (to about 12"). This radio works fine and was removed from service a few days ago. Smoking deal due to the missing connector - $170 shipped conUS

    What do u use for a antenna? On the first pic? Is the cable that's cut (modem) style is it a straight through cable? 170 is a good deal. How old is it?

    I used a trunk lip NMO mount on the hood with one of two antennas, either a 1/4 wave VHF or a 5/8 wave base loaded VHF.

    I'm not exactly sure what you are asking in the second part of your question. The cable that is cut is a 6' long cable with a modem / telephone jack style connector on each end which links the head unit with the radio. It is cut just shy of one connector, so you would have to source another connector and install it, or buy a whole new cable for $16ish at most radio shops.

    The radio was put in service June 2016.
