No relation to Kraco I hope! Remember those guys? I think they sold cheap car radio audio amps and the like if my memory is correct.Congrats! You will not be disappointed. Someday I should post pics of my Kreco antenna collection which includes several Discones, ground planes in aluminum and brass, stacked coaxials for 2m, 220 and UHF and a beam antenna with folded coaxial driven element. I'm a big fan of Kreco.

Somewhere along the same time frame, maybe when Audiovox went to heck. Wait, I think Audiovox never needed to go to heck now that I think about it.
I think both made 8 track versions of CB receive only radios along with underdash CB converters that downconverted the CB band into the AM broadcast band.
I recall my dad having one of the underdash models so he could monitor CB 19 once. It was a small box with a huge S-Meter but you had to tune your AM car radio to make sure you were really hearing Channel 19 as it was nothing but a downconverter. The Kraco or Audiovox downconverter had an actual channel selector on it and it was easy to tune the AM car radio for the correct output as you just tuned for maximum noise indicating channel 19!
I think one of the two companies also sold one that had a fixed output frequency.
I know one of the companies also sold an actual CB transceiver or two as well.
Don't recall if that was pre 40 channel days or not though.
Please do post some pictures of some Kreco antennas though. That name just does not ring a bell in my head.
How long has Kreco been around?
I just sent an email to Glenn at Kreco antennas....Im finaly ordering my D-150A.
