They're probably very nice radios, but the critical factor will be reprogramming - unless you can get the software, or have the money to send them to the firm to do, they're expensive doorstops. If each one costs say £30 to have reprogrammed, is that within your budget?

Well yes it would be if they are worth say £100 each lol.
I would post a picture of the exact units but cannot figure out how to attach?

Most folk list them on photo bucket or similar then use the img link.

I think you'd struggle to get that even if programmed - in their current state, unprogrammed, then you'r probably looking more in the £25 range. There are sources of software for the big makes - Motorola, Kenwood, Icom etc - but not these?

Have you figured what band they are on? Key used to supply lots of MPT1327 Band 3, Low Band, High Band and UHF radios, the Band 3 radios were only good for parts..

Not 100% Sure what this means but there is a sticker on one of them that says UBL Trunked MPT1327 - Analogue Voice Digital Signal Systems.

Does that mean anything to anyone?
