That's a lot of money for a faulty set with a limited frequency range.
Leave it to the nobs with more money than sense I think.

I think the reason it is so expensive is it is a German modded Muller Electronis version that has a VFO fitted.

Hello AVID cb collector. That looks like a Cydernet sh!tter to me breaker. Maybe would look nice in your cb radio cupboard with the rest of your mega expensive cb's.

Might hear you on the air one day and i'll give you a radio report. All the best. Buggy Boi :mrgreen:

which bit of "the board is a Stag 357/WKS 1001/Colonel FR-360 etc etc.." did you not see :)

the rig is nothing more than a Stag 357 or other similar boarded rigs, like elctronicas and more..

A radio well worth geting your hands on if your a collector of radio's :!: :!: :!: :!:
As a lot of you know these sets are based on President adams's and they work just as well as a President adams and for the Colonal FR360s there just as good as an President adams :!: :!: :!: :!:
