14 lbs...not counting the battery attached to the radio..another lb. for that one...they lasted for a day if you were lucky.

***You could go fishing with this battery. It would explode in the water after it went about 3-4 feet. If you needed fish to eat of course.

So, if you were the RTO and coming up on a river or deep stream you had to sometimes hold the radio over your head or find something to keep it afloat on.
The radio's of today are of course not like the old school PRC-77. They will just short out and be a nice paperweight for your desk.
