I bought the Robyn 240D a while back and realized that there was no place to put it. I ended up setting it on the filing cabinet in the corner because I don't like stacking radios and I am sure that my grandfather would be disappointed about the Madison sitting on his Hammerlund. Now finally the Robyn will get the home it deserves in the station. Stop by and check it out.

I made a place for the Robyn and then took it back out to have a place for my rack gear. The rack gear does great with the 955 and the Sonar too, but I think the Sonar sounds better with the D104. I feel like that's the way it's supposed to sound because the 104 has a lot of punch where the rack gear compressor is adjusted for sideband on the 955. I could adjust it to better suit AM but I would rather not fiddle with it all the time. I would rather set it and forget it. If I really wanted to run rack gear on the Sonar, I would buy a second setup to have dedicated systems for each mode of operation. I hope you are doing well, I am working tons of overtime at the moment and we are not at our peak season yet. I will talk to you soon.
Chris

I recently picked up a Robyn 240-D from eBay. It came with a D104 and seems to work ok. I might send it out to be aligned but first I really need to make a shelf. I really don't want to stack the units on top of each other. Also in this photo is the President Madison with upper channels and the Bearcat BC785D Trunk Tracker III.

Here is the thread on the Robyn:
