    Default Oddball radio

    This is a new one for me. A DTMF Expo.


    Model # H24QEU1110AN

    But will it do TRBO

    I could see DTMF being an elite feature back then. Nice find.

    Back in my shop days we did alot of golf course radios. They used DTMF to turn on sprinklers. I played with DTMF on many old radios. Never saw the expo with DTMF but its kinda a cool find.

    Odd lookin critter, but an interesting find. I imagine the window above the keyboard is for a display. Thx.

    Expo's were such royal POS. Couldn't keep them fixed.

    Is that a screen? Thats unbelieveable. You know what that is, thats a pocket radio-phone for only the best of the best or the coolest cats with a need to connect
    Reach in your pocket whip this out, dial up access anywhere within range. I wonder if its 7 digit or 10 number display for long distance!
    Do you know what the frequencies are?

    Yeah, it’s super weird. The keypad is identical to the MT1000, but the display is super odd.

    It’s definitely an LCD display, which I hope works. I’ll try charging it up later.

    The radio is crystaled for 408.0000 simplex, which is super weird. This one is clearly lacking an FCC ID.

    Now I’m wondering if it’s possibly a 5 tone variant from overseas.

    I removed the front cover today and couldn't find a speaker on this unit. I'll take it apart when I get home later.

    I see it has "knob Rot". If only someone could 3D scan the knobs for these things and make an aftermarket replacement we could see a resurgence of interest in these great radios.
