Well from memory i owned a Harrier CBX and a Harvard Good Buddy they were both excellent rigs! Also had a Midland 4001 and a Fidelity 2001 that performed very well also.

Infact i preferred those type of rigs to the ones available today! Wish i still had them all.

I must be a CB dinosaur!!! But i like!!!

Cheers...P
All the best.....73....P

This was a photo taken in my dad's Datsun - we just hung it off the ashtray to start with, until we managed to get it properly installed. I had an amstrad antenna the base of it was bright RED with white lettering.

I *think* this particular CB was branded by several different manufacturers including Tandy, Binatone and Audioline.

I have the Audioline version and whilst the facia looks very different to that one, the knobs and displays are in exactly the same place. Even the mic looks the same but a slightly different colour.

Still going strong too! A label on one of the bits inside dates mine as a 1984 model.

WO HO HO, Im still using a CBX,
This rig uses the Cybenet chassis like the Rotels/Binatone same as York JCB 863, ROTEL RVC 240
Fully tested,power and modulation meter is bang on with crystal clear 100% "modge" power output is 6 watt on high power (not sure if that is true though but many people have told me that it is 6watt for all CBX- can any one confirm this??), 0.5 watt on low, its in great condition for age just a few scratchs and wear on the ally face plate it works very well and its completely original,
Id say it was a perfect candidate for a Mid band block upgrage... if i knew what i was doing..

CBX quality built on the famous Cyberrnet 134AOX board, .

For the first time am today the owner of a Rotel RVC 240 radio, good condition, not modded and came as normal. An ebay buy no less.

Would like a CBX or the CBHQ sometime if they ever come around, these are good old radios and the receive was excellent i remember. Sad it took me 27 years to get one for myself, still thats the way it goes and am looking forward now to hear some voices in the sporadic e season :mrgreen:
