:) An illuminated display cabinet to fill up with cb rigs :)
You'll only get 3 rigs in there . You're going to need some more cabinets :)
Are you going to replace the bulb with a blue LED though ;-) :lol:

Spent a tenner on a mint 40ch mid-block FM handheld radio just for the telescopic aerial. Gonna resell it with a busted one fitted and a rubber duck stuck on instead.

I wont be hiding the fact that the aerial's broken, unlike most sold on ebay. Third time lucky this one's all ok when it arrives and looking at the pic's it is :) The rubber duck will probably double the value of the handheld to some!

I fancied myself a cheap new and didn't fancy a CRT 1 or the clones so I went for one of these.

Seller accepted £41.50 all in.

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