Just received this little beauty today.
It is the same rig I had in my teens and just looking at it brings back so many great memories.

I have an SS9900 coming for my 4x4 but this is purely nostalgia! If I can get some local contacts on it that would be great but mostly it will be sat on my desk looking awesome!

I thought I would share my happy moment with you guys today.

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Andy

Hi Andy,

Nice to get an old rig that throws you back a few years Smile Nice rig, nice find.

I had one back in the day, was supposed to be a backup rig but loved using it so much I used it most of the time!
Back when the old 27/81 used to be crammed I modified mine with the old TC9106 PLL 'piggyback' mod, quick press of the old PA/CB button and I had 80 channels Smile

Ha, gave this old git a reminiscent moment too Very Happy

Enjoy.

All the best,
Victor

Great stuff, bringing back memories is half the fun of this for me right now, the tone of the rig is even just how I remember.

Cheers,
Andy

Mate of mine has one in his car. It's the only CB he has that doesn't get RFI from the vehicle electronics.
