Hope this is enough information.
M59 was one of the worlds first DSC radio's.
When made it could have a DSC PCB added inside the radio.
Sad to say this was for class F DSC and NOT class D.
Whilst this was a great radio in its time, many still out there in use, it cannot be used for DSC in UK/EU.
Be worth looking to replace this, can fetch a good price on E-bay.
Clubs like this unit for use as a base radio.
I understand the GPS is just a GPS and nothing more.
A very good GPS though.
Fine if you want just a Lat/Long type read out that can feed other bits of kit.
Hope that helps a bit.
