DIY FM board

Post by cb4ever104 » 05 Feb 2018, 12:01

Hi All .

I was thinking of making and adding an FM board to my 148 GTL . Are there any decent kits available on-line that I can buy/build ?

Thanks in advance .

Sammy

I Know nick knocks up his own FM boards, But dunno if they would suit a cobra, Spectrum comms do FM Boards (kits) But i'd rather eat my own excrement than buy from that ignorant bastardo :x

Nick put one in a 148 GTL for me a few weeks ago and it works great. I think he said they were cloned Uniden ones that he's fitting

RF Communications do a good add on FM board. I have one here waiting for a trip down to Nick's at some point to go into a Galaxy. I think it was around £15.

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

Can't complain about the speed of delivery. I have one sat here waiting to go into an AM/SSB Galaxy.
