Definitely something with a 6-pin mini-DIN data connector.
The FT-1500 was the last mono-band radio with a data connector.
I snapped up half a dozen when I heard they were going out
of production. The FT-7900 is probably the lowest price one
these days. However, for not much more money, you can get
the TM-V71A. It's the same body as used by the TM-D710.
For a bit more money (but worth it!) your friend could get
an FTM-400D, but it uses a 10 pin data connector. It's a
very nice radio to use. It's the one with the very deluxe
touch-sensitive colour screen.
