Photo is too small to tell much. Is there an ID tag on it anyplace?
I don't know much about 2-way radios but I'm over 50 and can't remember not having one around. Everything from Buddy and Citi-fone to Icom and Kenwood.

Sorry there is no id tag on it (got from a radio rally)
I will try and get some better photos taken to-day.

Howard -

The radio you have is a Yaesu (Vertex) FTL-2011, 99 channel, 40 watt 134-174 mhz coverage. Great radio, has a alpha-numeric display and multiple format tone encoder / decoder

A little info at:

Check here viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1289&p=12272#p12272 on this board!

I've just bought the 2014 (the 4-channel version) and I posted a link for the schematic. RadioArena have the cables at £14 or so (but be sure to buy the right one for your rig) and you'll probably have to find an old computer that can run DOS (from boot-up, not in a "DOS window") for the programming.

If you don't already have it, message me with your email address and I can send you the User Manual.
