    Anyone running the Sirio P5000 in their mobile

    I run them on my semi, love em. I have used Wilson, k40, francis, predator 10k, hustler and many others. In the power level I run I could not be happier. They have excellent receive, and can take 800 watts everyday all day. Just beware these are very tall. The tips on my semi are at 14 feet...

    Educate me on Bird elements

    I am new to bird meters myself, so very interested in the answer. I would think it would be fine since with either element being close to the edges of their working limits of them on either slug.

    uniden 980 discontinued

    If that is true, but I doubt. I would have to say lack of sells would be the reason, not another line.

    Does different coax affect swr?

    Forgive me but the project in question is at home and I'm on the road currently. I'm not getting into another coax length battle, so here we go. Current setup, Sirio performer 5000, lmr 400 ultraflex to the radio. Soon to be adding something between the radio and antenna, say for the sake of...

    I WISH THIS FORUM...

    Have you seen how people are acting? Do you really expect for people to put thought into something? Or think even? I am kidding of course, but only to a point.

    Cobra 132xlr or 138xlr

    I can't complain, the 132 was recapped 3 years ago and I picked it up for $40. The 138 I'm not sure about. The guy that I am buying the radios from used to live in the Chicago area, but now lives is Tennessee. He is sending the radio to a friend of his that used to work at the cobra plant in...

    Cobra 132xlr or 138xlr

    Ended up with the 132xlr, the 138 is blowing fuses as soon as you turn it on. He will get it repaired and let me have it for the cost of the repair and the selling price.

    Cobra 132xlr or 138xlr

    I have a chance to get 1 possibly both of these radios at a fair price. But not sure which is the better one of the two. I don't mod old radios, but I do rotate them in an out of the base station ever now and then. Never been a huge cobra fan personally. But hard to pass this deal up. Just...

    Optima MK3

    May I ask why you drilled a hole over the mic? Not overly familiar with this radio myself, but I've heard they are really good on ssb.

    Fine tune cb.

    I'll be looking to get a new radio next year and have been a loyal customer of bells cb for years. But bells is no longer accepting repairs and hasn't for a while now. So now I'm on the search for a new full service quality shop. Looking at ssb operation as it's main function and I have a few...
