Been offered a Tristar 777 - apparently in excellent condition. It’s been epromed to uk 40 and is doing 10 w am/fm and 20 usb.
What’s everyone’s opinion on these radios ?
QRP Rules OK!

One of the best Cybernets IMO.

The 747 on the other hand...

If you do buy it turn the power down though.

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

Indeed. It does sound like it's been "tweaked" to the max.

You should be looking for around 5 - 6 watts AM/FM and around 10 - 12 watts peak on SSB.

The current output won't be doing the 1969 any good at all.
Never, ever, ever....bloody anything ever!

Far too many radio's to list here. But I do own a legal one...

Nearly as good as a Uniden.

The 747 I don't rate at all.
