    Yeah, then again my wife may have different plans, I'm not even going to act like I'm the boss. Lol!!

    I have a confession to make. My radio room has became her other pantry, but I'm allowed to have a corner of it for my radio room. 20210131_193944.jpg
    I'm definitely not the boss, but like they say if momma ain't happy nobody's happy. :whistle:

    Now you need a coffee pot and a microwave and you would be set.

    That looks like a perfect location for a radio room. Canned beans, snacks, and fridge all close by. (y)

    Not a bad idea Slow! But I probably shouldn't push my luck or she may take my corner away from me.

    I've been a little silent, been sandbagging on here some, hope everyone has been well. I have my Maddison set up with a 102 ss whip for my antenna, I'm not hearing anything but static, I'll admit I threw the antenna up quickly it's not perfect but good swrs, could be better though, anyway I have a transformer and a lamplight on a poll in my backyard and I think it's playing heck with my receive. I probably need to move the antenna further away from it, I'm thinking this may help. If anyone has suggestions, I'm all ears.

    Love my UNIDEN 980SSB.I Sold 114 CB's several months ago including several of the side microphone Cobra 148 GTL's & a whole bunch more but I kept the First Series 980SSB because I just love the little radio.It's got a hot receiver & with the Astatic 575-M6 microphone I get great audio reports.It's a great little combination in my opinion & I've been doing this since 1965 & I don't see anything not to like other than the Stupid Talkback Crap which will NEVER be turned on as long as I own it.I also have an Antron 99 at just 30 ft & I have worked the world on it.So many Haters of the 980SSB & the Antron but like them or not they just work. :p:D
