    And that's what fits on the desk, doesn't include the mobiles, doesn't include the BC gear, or the modulators.

    Weigh? With or with out the house?;)
    Just kidding. I'm not the type that needs to have the latest, greatest gear. As long as it is functional and can be calibrated is all that I'm concerned about.

    LOL i don't own this beast, it's just a pic i found online quite a few years ago.

    I used to use it as an avatar years ago, and was actually surprised that it was still out there. found it on pinterest.

    If anyone knows who built it, i also would like to know the story behind it.

    My signature used to say, "it puts out a really clean signal"

    4037 lbs (1831 kg) and it is not mobile. I'm a big fan of "boat anchors" also and just picked up a D&A PDX 400 (Phantom) the other night at a CB meet & greet so add another 40 lbs to the total.

    Shoot, forgot to add the National NC303 receiver I scored last week so boost it another 50 lbs. Notice a heavy metal pattern here?
