Cheapest new Radio in uk.

Post by Mudslinger » 03 Feb 2018, 16:40

Just for a bit of fun, post up links to the cheapest new CB radios availabke in the UK.

I have see Inteks and Luitons for sale at Maplin in the recent past for £20 or so new, that is the sort of stuff I mean.

Those new to the hobby, or those after a second set for the car may be interested in such a thing.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

I know you can get a CRT 1 for around £40, but they don't do much for me. I don't like the TX audio or the fixed microphone.

In my opinion FM/AM rigs aren't really worth owning in this day and age. SSB is what's needed.
Never, ever, ever....bloody anything ever!

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

True but in most places folk still rag chew on 27/81 FM.

There seems to be a number of sellers of the CRT One & S-Mini for sale, with prices varying somewhere between £45-£50 which is not bad for a brand new basic AM/FM multi-norm radio.

I've changed radios so many times, I've forgotten what I have

Nocando have them for £37.50, but I would rather pay extra.
I am hoping someone can turn up something similar to the £20 Maplin special Intek.

I didn't think I'd like the CRT one with it being a new radio and everything else I've got is 20 yrs + old but to be fair its a good little radio for using in the jeep. For a usable budget rig it was a lot better than i thought.

These look good value.

Same radio as the President Teddy internally, but only £45
