Ordered another Megawatt S-350-12 that will be here Monday. So now the amp will have it's own power source.

A guy drove up to my wife & me in a truck stop and and "you wanna buy a radio" ? He handed me a box with this radio in it. I took a look and he said "twenty-five bucks" . . . I countered with $20.00 and he took the cash and sped out onto the highway. "Don't ask, don't tell' - LOL !

Picked up a Filipino Uniden PC 66a on facebook marketplace locally for $5,yes five dollars America. I expected some beat up 💩 but it was practically brand new. Got it home,put it on a supply,put a 6” 316ds pigtail and coax on it,plugged in my external headphone amplifier and speakers and finally jacked it my audio chain with Gstand d104.

Put a 5w slug in forward,1/2w carrier,switched the compounder to 2x gave it some modulation,probably 10w. Unimpressive bird numbers but here is where things get interesting. Filpped the stiffy switch for pep and went to a 20w,in the corner,2x 30ish,finally on 5x the **Censored** $5.00 radio keys 3w swings 35ish,flipped my microphone tube preamp on and fed it some more audio radio swings 43w pep. Not bad for a $5 radio that the woman knew nothing about. Someone had hands in it who knew what their way around a 66a.
