Yep. Selling mine.
Have grown disappointed in the group of locals I purchased it to converse with. Too much talk of politics and one foul-mouthed hothead I've quickly grown tired of. But all of that is another story.

One would be hard-pressed to find a better-looking, better-working Mark III. This one is beautiful in appearance, hears great and I get unsolicited raves on its loud, clear audio. The radio is equipped with an amplified Golden Eagle D104.

On Ebay, Mark III's looking this good cost twice what I'm asking, AND you don't know what you're getting because they almost always say, "Powers up but no further testing performed. Being sold for Parts Only." With this one, you know exactly what you are getting because I'm going to tell you. Members who've purchased items from me in the past here will confirm I am a straight-shooter.

As good as it looks and as great as it works, this is still a 50-year-old radio. There are a few minor things. So there are NO surprises, I am listing them here:

1. There are two small scratches in the edge of the transmitter's cabinet. I used the unit three days before I even noticed them. Here is a pic:

2. The SWR knob is fairly had to turn. This too, is something I didn't notice for days because I use an external SWR meter. With the Mark III, one has to calibrate the meter, read the reflected power and then refer to a chart in the manual to determine SWR.

3. The squelch doesn't work as well as it should. This wasn't a problem with me as I rarely use the squelch. If the background noise is a little too loud, I adjust the RF Gain slightly.

An original manual in MINT condition is included. As well as this retro advertising sign:

The feet and all connecting cables are in great condition. I recently replaced all of the light bulbs as well as the large 3-stage can capacitor in the receiver as a hum was beginning to develop. That is gone. As mentioned before, the receiver is fantastic.

The radio is currently set at a 1 1/2 or 2 watt dead key (can't remember). It is easily adjusted on the rear of the transmitter and will do at least 4 watts output. This is what it was set at when I purchased it. By the way, I bought this from Associated Radio in Overland Park, KS. They had taken it on trade and were selling it in their Used Equipment section. Prior to offering for sale, their technicians had gone through it to insure it was working properly.

That's it. Am happy to answer any questions.

Now the important stuff. Price is $700. AND, I WILL NOT be shipping this. It is too large (each unit is 15"X10"X6" and weighs about 25 lbs.) and I do not want to risk damage due to poor handling. It will be available (a) for pickup in Wichita Falls, TX, or (b) if you live in Texas or a neighboring state, I am willing to meet you halfway.

That's it. PM me if interested.

Thanks,
Jim

And it is the 'late' version of the receiver. It has two tuneable receive bands, up to channel 59. Transmitter is still only 23 channels. And this is a feature lost on younger folk. The receiver has no idea what channel you're transmitting on. And vice versa. They are totally independent. No trick to talk on one channel, and receive on a different one.

"Splitting" channels is not all that popular, since most modern radios won't do it. But back in the day, this was a way to reduce the effectiveness of an aggravator. He could talk over you, OR plug your ears. But he couldn't do both. Unless he had two radios. And two antennas.

Thanks, Chris.
Forgot to mention that. When HF is selected rather than CB, it will receive from 27.285 to 27.595.

:LOL: Good times... good times, it was a great way to get around someone acting like an arse!

(RM, I'm not trying to change topic / hijack your post, it was a spontaneous memory triggered by Chris/Nomad).

(Bottomed out and trending upwards. Take a look on ebay and you’ll see why. Twice the price and you don’t know what you’re getting.) Next stop: $700. :giggle:

Honestly you can't go by ebay prices unless you want to sell it on ebay. I have had radios that killed anything ever sold on ebay and selling local or on a forum I got less than half of ebay prices and most if the time no sale. BUT !! You heard the ebay horror stories. They are true. First off cb radio people are a strange breed. Don't kill me for writing that but it is a fact. I know several people including myself that found out the hard way on the bay of how you think you got a ton of $$ only to find out weeks later the person put in a claim for not as described and you get back a raped radio. This is why I stopped selling on ebay and only buy. Also Supercock SS isn't helping with his Canadian helper forcing the prices up falsely with his bull crap all CAPS stories. If you would have shipped or I was local to you I would have been in. Bit don't use Ebay as a pricing tool unless you are going to sell on there. You were down to $600 and nobody out here jumped. So raising the price isn't going to help. Come on you spaced out cb radio creeps. Someone buy that beautiful piece of art.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
