    I am bored tonight and off for the holiday. Thought I would ask if anyone still has one sitting on the shelf. Fire it up and transmit on three channels at once. Happy 4th of July.

    Interesting. Would be fun to see inside and learn all its mystical powers and dark secrets.

    Removed a few back in the day.

    Can't remember making a record of the setup.

    Ah the bad old days of Radio-Whacktive Radios.

    Perhaps the better question would be,"Does any body have one that is still working?"

    I am not sure that they really did work when they left the wackpacker shop , at least not properly.
    Once and a while some one would say they got a good one but not many.
    Lots of horror stories go with that name.

    Not to change the subject:

    Who's that amp builder dude that was at a key down party. They interviewed him while he was drunk. The YouTube video was legend. I think they put him on a pedestal at the Mule Dropper site

    I was talking about that dude the other day.

    In my books the biggest, over-hyped hacker that every had a "store". Most radio touched by him imploded shortly after leaving the shop.
