Which battery pack? I believe at least one pack takes loose AA cells.

Interesting; my IC2E has only the original battery pack BP1; the nicads are special to type to fit.

Someone will be complaining again on the letters page in radcom about

I have been listening for weeks on S20/V4o (145.5), not a peep narrow or wide.
So whatever your deviation, is there anyone around to hear it?

I did know a 1970s G5, G5AFA who worked for the US
Embassy and had a house in Selsey. When I first met him, he had a
room full of Eddystone receivers. When I popped into see him is
Selsey, he had been banished to a caravan in the back yard with
Collins gear. He told me that he had been instrumental with
gewtting the reciprocal licence think going in the UK.

So, I'm not worried about being a G5xxx.

It was G5AFA who was responsible for my downfall.

Angelika Voss G5CCI campaigned unsuccessfully to have the G5 prefix
retained , rather than have to get a shiny new callsign when the
reciprocity ended . 1980s I think.

It's all about "spectrum" and how much money they can generate from it.
Given the impending financial crisis, I'd anticipate charges for amateur
licences again at some point, double if you want to use 25kHz rather
than 12.5kHz on 2 meters.
