100W HF/50MHZ All-Mode Transceiver w/ Built-in tuner. Tailor-made for DX' ing, the new TS-480HX HF transceiver raises the bar on portable performance. Despite its compact dimensions, it delivers an astonishing punch: 200W with a DC 13.8V supply. Yet its separate control panel is perfect for base station use. Sharing virtually all the same powerful features is the 100W TS-480SAT, except that it boasts a built-in antenna tuner. Whichever model you choose, you can be sure of enjoying the best of both worlds - first-rate communications at home and on the trail.
This product can be used with the 5MHz frequency band for the US market.

This is my second 480 and I should have never sold the first one. Nothing fits mobile service with the quality, TX punch, audio quality and ease of mounting. Even with my hearing I don't need an external speaker.
