    Wanted to buy..... AM/SSB CB radio

    I'm looking at buying the older style AM/SSB CB radio.

    If you have one for sale, please pm me with full details.

    All reasonable offers considered.

    Thanks.

    What is the reason for wanting one??

    Only asking as I have a good one which I fitted for a while so I could talk privately to mates without being listened in on and have wondered about fitting it back in the car?

    same here my Dick Smith Hornet 2 was a ripper in its day, but a bit bulky to re-install in a Patrol.
    Would be better suited in a camper or a van, could pick up USA easy with the right conditions, I loved it

    I love to talk. lol. This is probably the first mod I have done without fully doing my homework. I recently bought an AM one only because a few retailers told me that to get the SSB side of the radio, I'd have to buy one from overseas, so I settled on buying one from Aus - with AM mode only.

    I used to be right into CB's and it's also planned to use it as 'Plan B' should anything happen to my Codan NGT AR HF radio.

    There's usually cb kit to be had at the various ham fests and sales. I've seen a few unidens etc go for nix.

    Another option is to get your foundation ham licence (very easy) and there are a lot of options for sideband along with a lot more bands to play with. The 10m ham band isn't that far from the 11m (27mhz) cb frequencies.

    Same reason I fitted the CB/UFH radio, one mate couldn't afford a UHF so I was the go between.
    would make an excellent back up if stuck outback somewhere with a crook Codan or similar.
    My Hornet 2 had a power mike awesome bit of kit

    Do people still use 27mhz AM??? Last time I tried one years there was no one on . You may be lucky to get skip on SSB but the chances of someone receiving on the other side would be very low IMO

    Apparently its popularity is on the increase. I have the tolerance and patience with HF radio, as that was my job in the navy for over 8 years - many moons ago.

    SSB is not perfect and the clarity is not the same as FM, but I enjoy the challenge. lol.

    Hiya Cobbs,

    As per the PM can't help with the SSB but just curious if you have been chatting on VKS outside of the skeds?
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.
