    I will say I had one of these back in around 1979 on a 60' tower up on a ridge and it was a force for sure as I was running an old Footlocker about 600 watts. I could talk to stations in NY about 120 miles due north of my location. Worked really well for about a year till we had a freak wind storm.

    Might as well post a screenshot - no ones going to believe that this was that "Cheap" in the near future.

    One thing to caution others...
    Unopened versus opened - always check the parts list.​

    Not as stupid as those who failed to get some basic gear when there’s none to be had only a little later.

    That isn't really the point. Supply and demand. They are asking these prices because they sell at these prices. As long as buyers exist at this pricepoint, prices will remain high.

    Ok well, word it however you want. The bottom line is anyone who pays 5,6,7 hundred dollars or more for a cb radio is out of their mind.
