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

That was a popular "budget" brand down under in the 80's and 90's. They has a small range of AM mobiles and walkie talkies, very cheap with a performance to match. They turn up on the Oz eBay site regularly, usually but not always for silly prices:

Can we please have this thread removed? You know how upset Buick Mackane gets when people start bad mouthing any radio with the 'Great' board in it. Lets keep the peace before he spots this and goes insane.
