Already in the ebay overpriced loonies thread.

Nice but it is a sub £200 radio IMO.

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

You just wouldn't would you. Yes, it's a superb example. But the price tag simply isn't justifiable for what you're getting.

I bought a boxed like new ICOM 706 MK2-G for the same money and a much more desirable NOS 148 GTL-DX for considerably less.
Never, ever, ever....bloody anything ever!

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

:D Everything retro is skyrocketing, classic cars, most things from the 70’s are back in fashion and fetching good money, modern stuff is made cheap and not built to last,
People have had enough of crappy Chinese landfill $hite
Buying and hoarding CB radio's is an illness
