Found this guy at a local thrift shop. I did not really need another old CB, but it was sitting there all alone so I took it back to the house so it could have some friends. It looks like it has never been installed. No scratches, no mods. Even the mic looks like it just came out of the box. Had the manual, hardware and original antenna. It seems to work, but the RF meter seems to be a bit wonky. No I just need to figure out what I am going to do with it???? I would post a pic, but I guess I am not allowed to do that?

You were allowed to 'participate' when your post was approved.

If you would look over the rules and information that you agreed to when you joined...

You need several legit posts to gain more privileges...such as posting pictures.

Holds down on the spammers.

Just posting an update.....got my HAM ticket punched in December and started talking on the Baofeng UV-82HP then I pulled the trigger on a Yaesu FTM-3200DR mobile and a Nagoya UT-72 magnet mount. I tell ya that Yaesu is AWESOME!!!!! Fantastic sound, and loud too from a front firing speaker, and its C4FM/Fusion digital capable. The best thing I like about it is that it can determine if the incoming signal is digital or analog and you can switch back and forth between the two modes just by a quick tap of the PTT!!! 73's for now from a Yaesu fan! :biggrin:

Have a Predator 10K inbound from G.I.Joes. Wish there was tracking. I'm replacing the Wilson 1000 Mag mount with something that works with a custom mount I had made for my old truck and finally put onto the new one.

TYT MD-380 DMR handi talkie. Didn't program it yet but it is supposed to link me to all the locals and all over the world. We will see if that is true later. Looks like a nice rugged radio.

A **NON-SPONSOR** 1inch diameter mount requiring a 5/8 inch hole to mount it. I have some tuning issues that I need to resolve. My custom mount is back at the fab shop I got it from to add 8 inches to it to put my antenna at cab height rather than dealing with reflection, and bonding and grounding issues taken care of.

Small item. A Top Gun CP-1 audio compressor. Not sure what ya'll think of them, but I like how it sounds. Installed it into my Galaxy DX959 using the resistor that comes with it now. Set up my Cobra 29LX in the apartment to receive while video recording. Drove a mile away, played with different settings while calling out what they were, went home and viewed the video to optimize my settings with it installed. A fun after work project today.

Tax return checks are "Fun Money" right? Ordered a RCI 2970N4 with a few mods. Of course, that means a new alternator and things for the mobile are needed. Where does it end? LOL!

Have this for quite a while. Was a pig in a Polk when I bought it. Couldn't test was from a silent key here locally. It didn't work and back burner-ed it because figured was gonna cost a lot to fix it. While back had a few extra bucks and shipped it off for repair. What a delight came home fixed up great and with minimal cost. My antenna switches are only rated a kilowatt so keep it throttled back. 35 watts keep it around a kw. Great amp, first metal tubes Ive had around love it.

Bought a new cobra a year ago getting back into CB. But since then I'v been having fun looking for great deals on second hand stuff. Second hand but good to excellent shape. Most the stuff you guys are showing here is way beyond my pay grade (or understanding) but I found a nifty little unit the other day and It's really come in handy. It's called a Land Matic microphone tester. Some guy had it from an estate sale or something and let me have it for a good deal. Like I said, I've bought a number of radios the past year and making sure they all work good isn't always easy. I had a great Cobra in one of my trucks for 6 months and it seemed to be fine but when I ran two trucks up to a job, I ended up listening to it for an hour and it was way over modulated. Pulled it out and replaced it but never knew what the problem was. Anyway, got this mic tester and tried out that mic first. sure enough the mic was the problem, no matter the volume, it just splattered and fuzzed up everything. The tester is a small box with 7 female jacks covering the most common mics out there with a small amp and speaker (or you can use an external speaker). It's just like having talkback but you can test all your mics from all your radios. In an hour, I found 5 or 6 bad mics that were scratchy or very soft or would break up or squeal. Unless you're using a talkback radio, you never really know how you sound unless someone tells you, and few actually do, they either put up with the noise or ignore you. So, it was a great little tool to add to my equipment.

Yeah, nice gear. Bet it's worth more than my truck ... probably my house too. Hey, do you get into (skip) Salt Lake much with that Kenwood? It's pretty much a straight shot from Sheridan and especially into my antenna in Herriman. Also, how do you like your solar set up? is it adequate for your needs?

Also, are you really Walt Longmire?

If so, you need a setup like that in your cabin, one in your truck too. Or, you could get a cell phone.

Nope on Longmire, I'm just another retired veteran who tinkers with radios.

Howdy,

I am just getting back into radio after many years away. I just got a President McKinley SSB and will be doing a dipole and a TRAM BROWNING 1499 NO GROUND PLANE CB RADIO BASE ANTENNA 500 WATTS to put up.
In the basement I have a vintage Kris 23+ with added channels I am going to dig out and have gone over soon, as well. The big stick and a D-104 lolipop
goes with that rig.

From Southcentral PA in Lititz this is Blue Ox2, how do you do?

A few new things TS-570d needed work an advantest SA and a R&S generator
That's some SERIOUS GEAR!! *WOWW!!* Beautiful.

:moneyeyes: :moneyeyes: :moneyeyes:

Must have set you back a few!

I bet that Kenwood sure sounds awesome! :icon_e_surprised:

Thanks: the 570d sounds good, it took lightning hit but was repairable and the R&S and the advantest SA make alignments and checks for spurs and such so easy just pump the radio into my diy sampler and that is it. I put out some bucks for them but worth it to me.


A few more pieces I picked up:

Hey Rabbit Ears,

Tell me a little more about your solar setup. I've got one partially set up out in the Utah desert but really I'm relying on a battery bank that charges up every time I run the big generator. I'd like to get a lot of the small stuff out there (like the radio shack) on solar this Spring. So knowing what you've done and how it works would help me a lot. Thanks.

Also, If Longmire (or at least his CB'n sidekick, Ferg) had that kind of equipment, don't you think he'd stand at least a little chance in Wyoming?

I recently got a Uniden PC68XL from my dad. It was new in the box, but had been the shelf a long time. It ad a flyer in the box encouraging membership in the National Citizen's Band...which no longer exists?

Anyway - I attached an Imax 2000 to a fence post and hooked up the PC68XL in the shop with a 12v power supply. I was surprised at the amount of activity it picks up on channels 6 and 19. Especially on clear & sunny days.

Hopefully when the weather cooperates I can get the Imax 2000 mounted up on the peak of the roof.

His buddy would with his beautiful Cobra 2000 and D-104 *and more* would. The series was filmed in New Mexico *arrgh!!* :ncool:

Why not here in North Central Wyoming??? Are our accommodations really that bad??? Shucks no!! *Self censored.....censored!.....damn!* Here is where the sportsmen and sports ladies come from all around to hunt and fish! Some of the finest lodging available. What a question!!

Right now I'm running a pair of 130 watt solar cells through a Prostar 30 charge controller with two AGM golf cart batteries wired in series. A Samlex 2500 pure sine wave inverter as backup power for our trailer. Works great during power outages and sunny days (going off-grid).

Works great!!

Thanks for the Solar info. We don't have the needed equipment yet but we're working on it. I'll probably have more dumb questions and observations for you once we get further into it.

Yeah, sorry about the Longmire thing. Seems no matter where a film or TV series is set, they always film it somewhere else. Makes no sense to me. It's probably a lot to do with Politics and Money more than anything else. Years ago they filmed a season of "Walker, Texas Ranger" up here in Utah. I think one of the episodes was actually set in Utah but the rest were in Texas. I work all over Norther Utah in some pretty remote areas and when the film crew was here, I ran into them on at least a half dozen occasions and it was always a hassle. They'd have their semis and equipment trailers everywhere and didn't mind blocking roads, even state highways for hours and most the drivers and managers I talked to were arrogant jerks. I got hung up for almost 2 hours when they closed a highway to park all their rigs on it and left no exit from the canyon up in what they call "Thousand Peaks Ranch". I got upset with one of their honchos when he was nothing but rude, crude and stupid. I was so ticked I called the county Sheriff when I got into cell range and found out they didn't have a permit, had no right to even be on the land they were on and that technically they were in violation of several laws. But the dispatcher told me they were dropping a lot of money locally so we ought to let it slide.

A week later I came across them filming scenes up on what they call "Bonanza Flat" where several dirt roads intersect between Park City, Midway, and Brighton Ski resort. Apparently they'd tried to close those roads too but the Sheriff there (different county) sent up some deputies to make sure they didn't. Instead, they put up signs telling, not asking all motorists to drive slow and quite through the production area. I thought they deserved a little Karma so I parked up on the summit and watched. Whenever they started filming, I'd start honking my horn or shouting out random directions on my P.A. and they'd have to stop. Then I drove through the set a time or two stirring up a lot of dust. The same guy who told me to shove it when I was stuck a week earlier got together with the Sheriff and pulled me over but I explained what they'd done to me the previous week and I was giving them a little pay-back. I asked the Sheriff If I was breaking any laws and he said "nope, do whatever you want, these guys will just have to deal with it". Then he told the production manager to get out of my face and his too! Apparently, there'd been a lot of complaints and the Sheriff wasn't too happy with them either. He told me later he'd considered doing the same thing I was doing only with his siren just to bug them. We had a good laugh and I took off. I was a little disappointed they didn't just send out Chuck Norris to threaten me.

When they do another action Drama on some detective in Montana, they'll probably come film it in Utah or Wyoming and we'll feel better about things.
Happy Trails

Just received my Texas Star 350HDV today in the mail and it's now in my truck behind the Cobra 29.
