happy with radio


Just realized i was on a VPN in a country where it is hard to find stuff i guess. I should of just turned it off a used American servers. I like president again. and yes i found a link and the mic is available

It works but I cant find a replacement microphone for it.

Yes the radio is great i love it. I got one for me and had one arrive the other day for a good friend, but today my channel upo button on the mic quit on me. And now it won't transmit from what i can tell. And the only other one is the 50-dollar mic, which is too much. Also on sideband sometimes I had nothing from someone 7 miles away. I had a stykrer SRA-10 Antenna paired with the CB.

No wonder they named a mountain after him

Install easy. Coax and power lead could have been longer. Checked on Ch 19 and was told: "Check is in the barrel". Now I need to learn a new language.
