Pye Continental CN25 VHF Mobile Radiotelephone


The Pye Continental CN25 replaced the earlier AM25 model in 1973. It was a ten channel mobile radio, with 20 watt power output operating in the 75MHz band. It featured an improved receiver using the latest MOSFET semiconductors, and was equipped with a 10 watt public address system.

The CN25 was the standard police mobile radio from 1973 until the introduction of fully transistorised Tait equipment around 1980.
