Ive spent alot of money lately to purchase another good high power radio and what a buncha crap things have drastically changed since ive messed with radios ( still havent got a radio spent over 500 bucks) got my old trusty 148f gtl thats better than ANY galaxy radio anyways and with my little texas star 2 2879 pill box its all i need anyways, that will beat any turd galaxy 959 with a crappy magnum 350 power case i dont care if it is made and signed by buck rodgers himself.

This is true. The important thing is that you've learned what some never will. A quality radio and an external amp vs 10 lbs of poo in a 5 lb bag.

galaxy is a truckstop splatter box they do throw power, but you cant talk to someone unless u can hear them,
 
wonder how people would feel if we keep pushing cb in the ham radio threads…
some of us have our ticket and some don't want one … thats like the 10th time I've seen that guy post that in the cb section…. no offense guy, let it go

can you put video on here? well once i contacted paypal he answered me 10 min later (been Emailing and calling for 3 weeks) said it would ship mon or tue next week. Then i get an email this morning "oh i might have messed up did you want blue or red" To me it seems if someone is willing to pay that kind of money for a radio you would atleast communicate with them as to what they want, this has been

I looked on LesComms site today and it said wait times for custom radios is 18-20weeks. WOW!! Did you not see that when you placed your order? Or has it been longer than that?

I've waited up to two weeks for one channel board from LessComm, but it was stated that "the boards are built when ordered", as are the radios, and "if you can't wait, buy somewhere else". But every board ive ever bought from him was flawless. Quality over quantity maybe?

Good techs are in high demand these days. Shops like dtb radio and bells cb have piles of radios to work on, requiring weeks of wait time to the customer. Think about it, you order a radio with all that work done to it, and the guy says "ill throw that thing together and have it shipped out tomorrow" I'd be a little leary.

All I'm saying is, don't be pissed at cb shops because of impatients, not knowing the quality of their work. After all, YOU ordered the $500 radio with the bells, whistles and sprinkles on top.:whistle:

    If the antenna leads of an inverted V dipole are at 45 degrees instead of at 180 degrees, what happens to the signal?

    @AF7LL At 45 degrees it will be omnidirectional. At 180, horizontal, it will be directional.
