Caption was probably written by a person to whom Ham and CB mean the same thing; just another sign of the kind of illiteracy that's so common these days.

Mhh the design of some of the CB radios there have reminded me the cassette tape and "ghetto blaster" era...

Unfortunately thats a bit more economy supporting than my personal economy can afford. :(

What about Elecraft, TenTec and other US companies that still make radios? Don't you guys want to support our economy?

OK - boys and girls. I have an assignment for you. After I found that Radio Shack says they have Ham Radios (note: Ham Radios not accessories) I shot them an email asking "Where are the Ham Radios?". I got the following reply.....

So, your mission should you decide to accept it is to go to your local RS and ask them "Where are the Ham Radios?"

I think we all know what the local Radio Shack reply will be when you ask them that question...... "What's a Ham Radio?"

As a new ham in 1994 I went to Radio Shack for my first radio....it was a hand held HT 202....5-6 Watts....it's still in use today...yes they did sell ham radios....and mobiles too....alot of the Managers were ham radio operators..back then...what a shame they are today....I can still get PL259's there...but don't dare ask the person working there to find you one.....(is that something for a cell phone?)

RS HT 202 STILL HAM'IN
