I was a member here years back but can't remember name/password/email I used then... so here I am again. Anyway, I run a Magnum 257HP with 4' Firestick in the pickup and does just fine for monitoring and traffic reports. I have a few more CB's, scanners and a 2 meter so always on the lookout for related equipment that is too good of a deal to pass up. Well yesterday I found it, an old looking FatBoy on the last day of an estate sale. They said it works, I was prepared to pay more but $10 is all they were asking. Can't believe it made it that long! Hell the copper in the humongous cables is worth more than that. Also picked up a Magnum S-3 with Astatic 636 for $5 in decent shape. Opened up the FatBoy today and looks like a 6 pill with Toshiba 2SC2879's. Sweet! A little dust on the board, nothing burnt and no loose connections I can find. Yet to power it up but feeling good about it working. Considering yanking the Magnum to use as a base station setup and looking for advice on decent antenna and whether the 80W Magnum 257HP would be a good choice to drive the FatBoy. Had my eye on Predator for years (local company to me) but never pulled trigger. Now thinking I might need something more substantial. All comments welcomed!
