      Good question.Mark:


      I'll have a look at it on my next trip down to the boat. The nameplate is the only ID on it. I picked the radio up at a second-hand store to experiment with. Funny thing is that it transmits further than my main unit at 50 ft above water - with only a rubber ducky antenna.

      No tubes? Then it ain't vintage! :)
