Soviet spy radio set - this page is a stub - wanted item

R-353-L is a solid-state spy radio set, developed around 1988 in the Soviet Union (USSR) and probably built at the Proton factory in Kharkov 1 (Ukraine), as one of the successors to the R-353. The radio consists of two parts, has English markings and has a built-in digital burst encoder, that is similar in operation to the one that is present in the R-394K Mark II and in the R-394KM.
