Very nice ! I like your invisible desk.
Ditto. Very cool.

Are you trying to corner the market on CBs, or what? Do you have some inside information that they will be worth something again in the future? :lol:

Well, no. My roots are in CB. Many hams use CB as a "stepping stone" of sorts and once they're licenced, they forget about it and then start bashing CB'ers.

I cut my hind teeth on CB Sideband.

Hey, I'm not bashing CB. I'm just trying to figure the value of having five of them set up in one shack. :lol:

(Yes, the 10m counts as a CB)

Memories. The Uniden Grant holds a special place in my heart. The guy that got me into CB sideband had one and showed the other side to me in his driveway. So, I went out and bought one and it tured out to be a complete basketcase. He restored it, removed the channel kit and echo crap and turned it back to stock, with a few tweeks.. ;)

Nevertheless, Value or not, it's my shack. If I want a stack of 30 CB's, I'll have them. :)

What kind of radio is that furry one on the carpet/floor? I notice it has two vertical, ummm antennas. Does it get good reception? :)
