Well, I'll kick off with this beauty then...

2004 Galaxy DX95T, 150 watt with twin Toshiba 2SC2290, boxed and mint, just bought it from Germany - had one before, instantly regretted selling it (twice!) so have been on the lookout for another minter for some time. Paid bloody good money for it but it's worth it to me. I'm a sucker for big meters!

Very nice looking radio. I'm always looking at these Galaxy radios as like you, I like the big meter. So far, any that I've seen are either knackered looking, hacked to death or a ridiculous price tag.

Enjoy mate.

Remember the 360 you got from Germany......?

He sent me this today, earlier than expected.

Not a mark on the front. 2nd set of cases getting sourced to be sent off and chromed.......why? My first ever SSB set was a 360 with chrome cases.

Teardrop will be used on it.

Very nice mate. Wonder what else is lurking over there?
Just taken delivery of a 360FM myself from Sammy in Spain. Needs a little bit of external TLC so I'll be looking to get my cases done (in black) to refresh them and then see if I can clean up the front.

It's heading down to Nick along with the 360 I got from Ralph for a tune up.

Enjoy! :thumbup:

Cheers pal,i was very late at getting to the rally as i had to work this morning & all the radio amateur bargains had gone,it was on a stall hidden under a Hygain 23 channel AM rig,when the guy on the stall said £20 i just had to give it a home,could just do with an original mobile mounting bracket & perhaps an original microphone,no rush though :)
