    Midland 13-880B channel mod?

    Anyone mod a 13-880B for channels that would include channel 38? I haven't found anything in searching but may have missed it. I am certain it would require an added crystal to be switched for a different set of channels but that is about all I know about it. Nice old radio but not too useful...

    Comstat 25A On Off Switch

    I picked up an old Comstat 25A for just a few bucks a while ago. it is in pretty good shape but needs some TLC. It worked okay, received and transmitted etc. before a cap blew! It needs the lamps in the meter replaced The weird problem with it is that the on/off switch in the volume control is...

    NMO to 3/8x24 adapters

    I see there are a couple NMO to 3/8x24 thread adapters out there and was wondering how well they work. Are they better for shorter antennas and unreliable for a full length fiberglass whip or? This being irrespective of the actual NMO mount being used. I know some of the mounts themselves are...

    Cobra 25 NW WX ST volume question

    I picked up a Cobra 25 NW WX ST cheap and it all works except the nightwatch feature which is no real surprise. One thing I notice that seems odd is that even with the volume down all the way it still has a fair amount of volume. When listening to a weather channel it is normal and a strong...

    The Anytone "Smart CB"...Opinions?

    I ma curious what you guys think of the Anytone Smart CB. Most of the reviews are pretty good. It sure is small, almost exactly the size of a 3.5 inch floppy drive but with about 1 1/2 inches less depth. Not a lot of features but that is okay with me. I wonder how they are with any engine noise...

    It's ham radio!

    Don't know how it ever got started but you see it as "HAM" ( I am new to HAM...) all the time in more recent years in various forums. It is not really capitalized in the middle of a sentence. It is not an acronym nor a capitalization. It is just plain old ham radio which is something of a...
