I got a new Yaesu Fusion FT-1DR HT. And 2 of the Yaesu Fusion FTM-400DR 50 watt Mobile/Base radios. Since we now have about 15 Fusion repeaters that can be hit from this area and 4 more that I know will soon be up it is time to equip with this system.

Just got my Uniden 980 SSB for Christmas. Installed in a 2014 Honda Accord with a K40 mag mount on the roof. I hope to have my also new RM KL203P hooked up to the radio so I can really talk some decent skip with it! Happy New Year to all CBRTer's 73's people!! :cheers:

Just picked up a MacDonald Instruments 06-32-75 walkie talkie for a local recycler. Now I need to find the manual so I can get it back up to par.

Love it so far... It has a seperation kit so I mounted the head unit on the dashboard. The menu features are easy to operate. A lot easier than you would think. I Talked to Poland on it yesterday. It's a great sounding rig.

3 nights ago i picked up a Texas Star 500 V amp and a Connex 3300 single final radio, along an Astatic D104-M6 mic with some coax and stereo amp power cables, plus a Rat Shack external speaker.

A few weeks ago a guy I know fell on hard times and sold me some of his CB gear (to pay his rent) which consisted of a Navaho TRC-458 base radio, a Cobra 29 Soundtracker w/added echo and talkback, a Superstar SS120 mini radio, a Galaxy 225 amp, a Workman HP201 meter, a cheap power supply, a Cobra power mic, a Ranger SRA-158 mic and a few other pieces.

Nice! MACO Shooting Star, that's the one I was just thinking about getting. It was between that one or the MACO Y Quad. Wonder how easy or hard it is to set one up.

Anyway, to answer the post, I just acquired a galaxy 2527 which is hard to find these days. And also just picked up a Silver K Eagle Mic too. Now all I need to do is decide which antenna to get and not hard to assemble and raise.

Going to find out tomorrow how hard it is to put together...shouldn't be that big a deal on the construction end...the instructions are pretty straight forward...trick maybe getting it tuned tho, but MaCo provided some tips on tuning, so hopefully the tips pay off.

You'll be fine, the things are pretty much foolproof. Nothing more than some minor wiggling on the gammas is all you'll have to do, at least that's been my experience. YMMV. :icon_e_wink:

Thank you for the reply PA629 & jessejamesdallas , as long as the numbers aren't in calculus, it will be a fun assembly. I just seen some that I think required soldering. Which isn't too hard to do. Good luck with your new antenna jessejamesdallas hope to hear ya out there someday. Everyone else have a great day and hope to post an update of some more new equipment in the near future (don't we all)

I recently got a lincoln II for the mobile. So far it is a great performer and the receive is nice. Other than that I snagged a few estate deals and now have a ton of odds and ends, some I'll keep.

Just purchased a Cobra 29 LTD Classic for 30 bucks! Appears to be in great cosmetic condition other than a couple of scratches. The meter light doesn't work but thats an easy fix. Also bought a new power cord and meter(just in case). Next, I just need to decide what coloe LED light I want for it. I think green or red would be nice. Time to shop on GI Joes site! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

I can't agree with you more Trblshooter. All businesses and businessmen should be like GI Joes. I mostly do business with our sponsors since they do support us, but they also have reasonable prices too. Ican also vouch for Joe at DNJ Radio. I have purchased several things from them, most recently my Sirio 5000 Fighter edition antenna. Their customer service is second to none! 73s :mrgreen:

YAAAAY!!!!! My Cobra 29 LTD Classic is here! I am pleased to report that cosmetically it looks better than described and it transmits with no problem. However, the stock mic that came with it when keyed sounds distorted, but I don't really need that one anyway, I can use a Cobra HGM75 PWR mic or my SRA198. I just wish I could find an RF Limited CR577. Can anyone recomend the next best power mic without echo? I'll see if I can post pictures of it but fair warning, I'malittle computer un-savvy! :geek:

I recently bought a Sears 934.36772600 23 channel Base\Mobile, a Sears 934-36771500 23 Channel Base\Mobile, a Road Pro RP 83W Antenna, and a Antron A-99 Base antenna that should be here tomorrow. I'll be looking at more garage sales this summer.

-- Mon Aug 08, 2016 12:45 am --

OK, since my last post. A Uniden Bearcat 980, am MFJ 874 SWR Power Meter, a previously owned NIB Uniden PRO520XL, a Radio Shack 13.8V 19 amp Power Supply, an MFJ 300 Watt Dummy Load, a Daiwa CS-201A 2 position coax Switch, and a used Kenwood TS 450S. (I know the Kenwood is full HAM gear.) I also decided to step up to General rating and ordered the General Class study Guide. Hopefully I'll be a General Class operator by New Years.

Opps, I forgot the free Regency CR-142, 23 Channel Base that works like champ.

OK, so I picked up a Realistic TRC 469 that needs work, but seems to RX and TX just fine and a new Radio Shack 13.8 V power supply with it. Then, Friday, I picked up some "junk", a Cobra 19 Plus and a K40 Model K401 made in 1984. This week I'll be picking up some real trading material though. Stand by to find out what I got and what I'm keeping. On a side note I got a Baofeng UV-5R V2+ a 2 meter and 70 centimeter Ham Walkie.

Wow, I wish that caliber of equipment was being advertised on a popular website from around my area. The best I've seen I'll write in a new post. I need to talk with pictures and this post seems to have come to an end of posting pics.

Found it in the Kansas City area. My sis is a ways away. But she was nice enough to go and get it. Got it out here while back. Old girl works pretty well speaker cone is hard so its a little hard to understand. The radio was originally 12 channels, somebody put a 23 channel dial and crystals in it. The shortwave radio is an RCA cant get it to power on at all think switch is messed up need further looking. Neat vintage stuff looking at the ads the radio is 1962 vintage way cool. Anyway will post a pic when and if it ever works.
