I was given a yaesu 2400 2m rig and kpc3 several years ago with the
provision that I not sell it.

The kpc3 had a problem with the 5v reg, and I replaced it with a 78L05 or
7805.  It seems to have suffered an overvoltage on the uprocessor, and has
two "minor" issues... 1) it only works with external squelch, CD INT does
not decode any packets, 2) it likes to forget it's settings when powered

The 2m rig needs a lithium battery, it comes up on 144.000 mhz when powered

So together, this set is hobbled... but a youngster, perhaps a teen ham, who
would have the patience to setup the TNC each time and spin the dial on the
radio might love to have such a setup.

I really want this setup to go to a kid that will use it and need it.  I
might consider poor college students, but I'd rather poor middle school or
high school new ham.  I just don't want this to sit on a shelf and go to

Best sob story gets it!  I would ask to be reimbursed for shipping at
least... or we'll work something out.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter
