Finally got a silver-fronted EMS Mercury 1040 radio off ebay. Been after one for a few years but they always fetched a fortune (last really nice one went for £102 with postage!) Paid £16 more than my normal £25 radio limit for it, but I used my recent £20 refund to aid bidding. It'll go nicely with my mirrored-gold and brushed-gold fronted ones as well as my 2 black-fronted portable ones.

Last month 2x cobra 148gtl dx .. was only looking for one but the second came along a few days later at a very decent price and turned out to be totally original : H/M/L bands, non switched beep, original ch9 switch etc and in particularly nice condition and still had the plastic over the serial plate !

Today received a lovely old school Sommerkamp ts788dx .. been after one for over 30 years !!
