    CB FM Mode

    Been using fm mode on my new lincoln 2 today and made several contacts on 26.805. Now I really want to get going on my president J.F.K. restoration. Also to answer my own question from earlier in the thread: sweep tubes work great for fm ;)

    President Washington CB Radio Base Station AM/USB/LSB

    I have the uniden washington that is the same as this one. Mine has a 3 switch channel mod and goes from 26.815 to 28.085. Add a $15 frequency counter and 3 switches and this radio becomes very capable. Someone should buy this fine unit and enjoy it.

    Texas star/outcom Dx-600 repill

    I think I am leaning more towards hg 2290s have been getting some real good numbers out of 2 pills when I match them with my component testers, probably going to try them with the transformes the way they are and add some variable capacitors and try to tune it.

    Texas star/outcom Dx-600 repill

    Ok due to the cost of the macom 454 and the fact that hg 454s would also require tuning I have decided to go with hg 2879s does anyone have the component values for the newer 667s that run the hg or dei 2879s?
