Not having a "RAG CHEW RADIO" at home I decided to save myself some money and pay my pals down Barnsley a visit for one of there used guaranteed for 90day pieces of equipment.
After a nice drive down the M1 I got off at junction 36 the Hoyland turn off and headed down Sheffield Rd to A Well known shop with this Logo on the outside.
After parking the car I proceeded into the shop to be greeted by a cheery Dave Who despite a burst pipe was carrying on doing repair's and modifications to radios.
Next I made my way over to their CB museum to see the weird and wonderful things on display.
There are CB's I have never heard of in there.Plus a few duds that I would NEVER EVER entertain.
I Mainly went down there to pick up a second hand Yaesu FT-1802M, a nice little 2Mtr 50W rig that will suit me for using at home , and here is a picture of me trying it out, The thing in my ear is a bluetooth earpiece NOT A flipping hearing aid ! and just below that is a picture of the rig itself
Then Lee The main man popped his head round and said hello , I had to take a few of him coz he is always moving about he doesn't stop at all. Behind him there is a LOT of stock in so don't be afraid to give him a ring and ask if he has a particular radio in stock,He has, and if he hasn't I am sure he will do his utmost to obtain it for you .
Here is Dave doing what he doe's best Getting a radio out for modification .
I believe the radio is the Need for greed 200W Kenwood TS-480 Nuff said.
There wasn't much going on over the holiday period I was trying WSPR but now my computers sound card seems to have gone on the blink . "SIGH" It looks like I will have to up grade the radio computer for something a bit newer. Its perfectly adequate but I think I need to get something with a bit more MEAT under the bonnet so to speak,it is only a lowly pentium 4 21.8GHz with 2 gig mem and windows XP.
Thank you to all my Followers and I promise I will not leave it so long before I update my Blog again.
