Hi,

Hope you can help.

I am looking to purchase RT-F100 / Raven radios or accessories, working or not. Also interested in any documents/manuals for these radios.

Please send me an email and I will reply ASAP.

Many thanks,
Henry

Most have already gone through the shredder. RT-F200 will follow in a year or so.

Shredded, that's sad.

The radios don't have any inbuilt encryption or hopping so they seem functionally similar to a front panel programmable Codan/Barret RFDS/VKS HF radio.
...but lower powered...and more difficult to maintain :-)

I'll keep looking for radios and accessories, I know that there are a few out there, mostly with a UK or US early life.

Why not get a Barrett, Qmac or Codan which you can, at least, legally use if you join VKS737 ?

It will be cheaper

Yes, as a working solution a modern radio from Codan etc is the most practical.

To me the Raven is a special radio for sentimental and historical reasons.
