    Copper usually has refurbished DX949's for around $80 or so.

    Galaxy CB DX949 - California CB Radios Plus
    Personally, I think you are making a better move by getting a radio that has SingleSideBand on it. Decent price for a SSB radio! The Galaxy is a great radio and a great choice - too - IMO...

    Yeah you can't pass up a 949 for cheap. EASY to get many extra channels. Just cut two wires and put them on switches.

    Mod and channel chart is on cbtricks.com


    See if you can find a 959 cheap. Same radio with frequency counter, same easy mod

    These radios have mosfet finals and will swing up to 30-35 watts with a proper peak and tune. Good luck!

    Maybe not when you factor in the 20 bucks for the tune that is included with the Sparky deal....

    Not to mention that the expertise and test equipment at Copper is basically not known.:blink:

    What is it going in? A car - or is it to be used as a base station? What kind of antenna, coax, mic, and so on do you have for your setup? Tell us some details please!

    It is a good thing that you got a radio with SSB. I almost never talk on AM mode. SSB has some very serious radio operators. I think you will do well to start off right with a decent radio like the 949.
