    I've used several radios on the 11m band, but always found myself going back to the good ole reliable 2000GTL. Well, it may be playing second fiddle from now on. Below is the radio that will be taking over the #1 spot in the shack for 11m communications:

    I've got one too. It is just sitting around and doing nothing. I don't have the BC 2000 unit as you do. I have used it before and it sounds wonderful, SSB is xlnt! The meters on it are very nice, and the recieve audio is also very decent - compared to a lot of radios I've used before.

    Always wanted to "try" one back in my CB days,but they're so expensive!
    Excellent reviews from most users/owners and I always liked their appearance.

    Its kind of like the ARF-2001 radio another Ive never owned.
     
  6. when i was a teen in roanoke rapids NC back in the latter 70,s Mr. Clean was one of the local smoke blowers . he had a cobra 139xlr (with a D104) , a 10 tube (i think) elkin amp going into a superscanner about 40 or 50 feet in the air and he sounded fantastic ! . he replaced the cobra with the CPI 2000 and he had the seperate CPI preamp with it . he sounded as good as ever as best as i can recall 30 years later . he kept using the CPI , i dont recall if he sold or kept the cobra , but i didnt see it on his desk anymore when i went over there . another MR. clean (in lil washington NC) used to set our stuff up for us ........ those were the days ;)

    not a pretty as a 2000 IMO , but definately can be as good . id be tickled to have either !

    congrats on a nice find !!!
