    Managed to grab (bid and won) this for $45. Hopefully it will just work. Was reported to work.



    I just wanted the TUP9 base with the extra PTT on the base.

    Tips or thoughts for Galaxy 86v usage.

    Where did you find that one, if I may ask? I saw one for sale recently but can't remember where. Great find!

    Just came in. Looks pretty good. Has 3 pin head. Wish it had a gold head. But I'll live.

    Was a Yaesu 767. Seller just got back to me. Was previously wired for Cobra 4 pin he said.

    Very happy thus far. Took out the 9v battery.

    Clean inside the base.

    Nice score!

    A friend of mine gave me a TUG-8 with D104 head a couple weeks ago. He had a dozen or so that have been sitting in a cabinet not being used. First one I have ever owned, and I absolutely love it.

    The handheld D104 mics definitely don't sound like the TUG-8. A CB friend of mine has a D104 hand mic, and when he plugs in his TUG-8, the sound is a good bit different. Sounds better to my ears than the D104.

    The TUG-8 I got was not rusty, but it did have very light corrosion on the chrome head. Bought a can of Eagle One Nevr-Dull wadding polish, and it's now gleaming with a mirror shine. It looks new.

    Anyone have an "Eagle" back plate for the head, it can be chrome that's fine (I found out Duplicolor makes a Black Chrome paint kit)?

    At some point the prior owner(s) must have swapped the Eagle head for a standard one with flat back.

    Someone I asked on EBay had scratched up back plate for $30 which seemed HIGH for just a back plate.

    R&R Communications had a Night Eagle Head with brass screen and brass nut on it. Snagged it up. Also got an Eagle back plate from them as well.
