Funny you should say that, we were gonna list it on there, stating that the positive and negative had been wired the wrong way or had been run with a high SWR but decided against it :)

State that you can't test it fully due to having no antenna. But it was working 35 years ago before you put it in a cupboard before the house fire. Also no returns due to screwdriver experts! :lol:

Far too many radio's to list here. But I do own a legal one...

Perhaps the next rig you send up should be a working one but put something a bit more powerful under it to send it into space, that way, if there is other life forms out there they will be able to contact Earth, don't forget to include a user manual though!

Send a fidelity 1000 up. That way, if aliens are on their way to attack us due to concerns over our technological advances and they intercept it, they'll examine it and realise the galaxy is perfectly safe. In fact they'd probably take pity on us and go straight home.
