Bought one of these early 90s , Taiwan made Grant looking SUPERSTAR SS-36 thingies .


Capture_0014.jpg


I don't see them come up very often . Front doesn't look in great condition . From a Google search it seems to have an EPT360014 in it , although being 93 I thought that it would have had an earlier board in it . Interesting to see that it doesn't have a COURSE control on the front . From the sticker on the top it looks as if the DIM and BRITE control the HI and LO band selection . Also has a PA jack on the back , but no control on the front . Bit of a rarity . No ? Anyway . Something else to take to strip down and play with :)

Oops. Not a 36 , but a Superstar GR. Has the same 360014B pcb though.

Impulse buy... A boxed marko excalibur mk2 with side handles from eBay France which looks in particularly nice order and unusually is still running the original 80ch on each band !! Plan to keep it standard.

Unfortunately moved the recently purchased ts788dx to balance finances up !!

A solar-powered "Wally light"???? Never heard of one of those. They usually suck a bit of RF energy when you TX to power the bulb.

Surely it'd have to be so big (being solar) that it'd add instability to the aerial in high winds or if using on a mobile twig?

No I’m not sure sammy, I’ll have a look when it turns up, mines a 23 channel one, they did a later 40 channel version so maybe that had it, :?

You didn't....???? ;)

Well I can't say anything as I bought a Zetagi power mic' a couple of years back for a tenner or so that's got a voice-changer on it that goes lower than Barry White playing Darth Vader and higher than a mouse on sex-changing hormone treatment whilst breathing in helium!
