Mike,

The Cosmophone 35 is nearly as rare with less than 90 sold and about 35 that I have either bought or located. The Cosmophone 1000 is rarer than the FPM200 as only nine demo units were built and none of them were sold however I managed to find and acquire two of the demo units. The 1000 is KW transceiver with dual tx/rx VFOs.
