A Jentec Cobra Transceiver MKV found in a loft now!!!!

Post by Tomcat » 04 Apr 2011, 22:51

I have just spent the last 15 minutes asking myself if i believe in the fairys!!

Am I the only one who finds it a bit far fetched that a Jentec Cobra Transceiver MKV would accidentally get left in the loft and then when it was taken to a CB show they only powered it,but didn't connect it to an aerial!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Found in sons loft when he moved i would give it a 8/10 for condition there is no leads or mic so i can not test it for that reason its being sold as spares or repair ,the picture is a bit rubbish thats down to my crap camara"
"On advice from other ebay members i have taken the CB to a local CB user who plugged it in for me and it lights up the LED on the right is green i was told this was important he never tested it with a mic or a arial so its still spares or repairs as listed that means no return hope this helps there is no B.I.N price"

yup, me too i offered him £100..
thats two of us...

i then went on to tell him all about his rare jentec, whats it's worth and the red and green versions etc etc.

it does say "found in sons loft when he moved".. not in or out..
he might have moved out and found it in his loft from years ago..
it might be stolen, and 10 years has past so it's cooled down..
it could be fubar'd
it could be choppedupwhoreslops trying to shift some crap..!!

but who cares it looks 8/10 and i want one..!!

Ahhh... school days ! How I remember them. Those halcyon days at Buccaneer High... I still recall the school motto hanging over the classroom door - "Tendo non impetro ictus" - Try not to get stabbed.

That can't be proof that UGLY_BOB invented the idea of cb radio. It's not Ugs in the picture because the patch is on the wrong eye - unless it was a blind test of course.
