    Around 6 pounds.The problem was that all the weight was at the front.Both of my big toes are permanently damaged from old ladies dropping that thing.The funny part is how big it was.It measured 16" long by 9" wide.

    How does a vintage 1991 DIAD get photographed on a vintage 2006 carpet? In other words, why do you have it?

    DIAD2 was the best for whacking an attacking dog. Just ask Zeus, the toothless German Shepherd how he got to be that way!!!:rofl:

    I think there was a Diad before all of these.I believe it was white in color.Maybe the 1st prototype?

    I think you might be talking about the "KDT". It was like a pager that allowed the OCA driver to send/recieve text messages and OCA orders. It became obsolete when 2-way communication was possible with the DIAD.
