Every time I visit the CB shop I spend money, luckily I had some fun money in the safe I had forgotten about so off I went and came back with this little metter, simple enough for someone like me. LOL. Saw some more toys I'd like to have but they'll have to wait, hopefully some well still be there next time I'm in. ENTERPRISE also showed me a really nice radio that would look good in my F250.

That's a good looking para dynamics meter you scored! It looks super clean considering it's from some time back.

It is is clean, and it has the manual with it. A friend of ENTERPRISE was there and suggested I snatch it up ,he said he had the exact same meter and has been using it for years, so I had to pull the trigger. There looks to be a well taking care of solid state amp that caught my eye but I needed the meter most, hopefully the amp is still there on my next visit.

I (and a friend) used to hangout at a radio shop in-between service calls, and besides check out the latest new gear in the glass counter, and used gear along one wall, we'd walk through a door on the opposite room, which had aisles and shelves of radios that were for parts, or some were ones he planned on fixing and keeping them for his collection. Needless to say, when we stepped into that room, it was like going thru a time machine, with CB's pre-1960 and up to the mid-80's. It was like a museum, and if it was still there I'd go back thru the time machine door, soak up as much history as my brain could hold, then take some photos of everything. The place is long gone, but I miss it. The owner was the kinda guy who, if he was taking in your radio for repair, he'd give out a loaner CB (with the same, or more, features).

I am in of, a reputable shop that can work on an OLD Cobra 146GTL and a gen2 RCI2950 that I could send my radios too. and have been not having any luck finding anyone. any suggestions?
 
Radiogarage.com or Superiorcb.com
tat radiogarage is some sort of radio station or something, nothing to do with two way radios. Superior I did reach out too. he said start looking to replace the 2950 as the processor seems to be dying in it. but my budget is limited. I was told to look for a Galaxy 88/99 but not the newer 9** series. and another 2950. not happening..

    Is it possible to be on a lake and have a homing directional beam being emitted from the shore so a person could navigate to that beam's source? For example at night to a jetty.
