Wanted ICOM M503 / DSC 100 to buy für SRC Training

These are outdated marine radios, I know.
But I am offering SRC training in Germany, and the ICOM M503 is used in the examination as the "original" reference.
The ICOM M505 - he current model on the market - is accepted. but I would avoid iritation and offer the old M503 in the course.
Even when there is no VHF radiation, its of interest for me.
Thanks in advance,

I should add that Germany is very restrictive when it comes to VHF and SSB radio licensing. Only a very small list of marine radios are approved for use aboard German vessels and most of those are big and expensive models used by commercial boats. My Icom M802, while one of the more popular ICOM models, is not approved here!

The government examination for the SRC (short range certificate) is done on an actual radio with the antenna disabled so as not to actually broadcast DSC messages (I wonder what the authorities would think if a MAYDAY fire on board messages were received with Lat/Lon coordinates in central Germany and far from water) and this is why sail1948 is looking for this particular model and why it just needs to function but not necessarily to broadcast.

Sail1948 - Ich dachte, ich wuerde deine Nachricht etwas erläutern, da die Amerikaner tatsächlich ihren SRC per Post ohne Prüfung bekommen können und jedes Funkgerät an Bord benutzen dürfen)
