A _mobile_ radio is intended to be installed in an automobile, and
to survive the voltage drops and spikes.

I have a TM-741, no blackouts, no brownouts, never. It's the same 
with the Spectra and various Nokias. And of course the MDR-150. The
only radio thingy that gets confused sometimes when I crank the car
at below-zero temperatures (Fahrenheit) is the alarm that resets to
the default mode.

Is this something that I should add to my list of why I should never 
invest in a ~1000$ APRS mobile radio?
