Became friends with a local I talk to on the CB radio. I went down to his house to buy an old Astatic microphone, and he has tons of radio stuff that he has bought mostly from Hamfests. Anyway, he offered to sell me a Ranger RCI 2980 for $100. There is nothing wrong with it, and works like it should. It looks like it is in very good condition. Would you buy it to use for a base station?
