    FT 857-D

    Is there anyone that would do the "hard mod" on my 857D? The soft mod does not work. My local Tech will not do the "CB MOD" on a ham radio, and my old hands are just too shakey.

    Best antenna

    The original question was "What is the best CB antenna that wont break if you need to park in a garage often?" The 102" whip is out of the question, so a magmount (Wilson 1000) is the way to go. If you are planning to upgrade with more power in the real near future, spend the extra money on a...

    What happened to "Dealer", the contest king from Dallas in 2002? Also "Hook", another old timer?

    Who has been here longest?

    I ran across my original CDX certificate that Charger mailed to me dated 2/26/02. I know that there are a few older, and some numbers and handles have changed. Lets hear from the oldtimers.

    Suggestions for 6 meter Antenna

    Thanks for all the replys. I think I will take Doc's advice to start with "A simple dipole", for now. Allthough the wet noodle would be cheaper, I hate the idea of watering it every hour. I can expand when I get a little experience under my belt.
