New base setup

Post by Sambo747 » Thursday, 20 January 2011, 16:26 PM

Got my new power supply and new coax today. Setting up my new base radio and antenna this weekend. Running a Cobra CAM 89 that has been converted to 40 channel and a Cobra 29 LTD with a little kicker and a A99 thats 30 feet in the air. Hope to get it all done this weekend. :cheers:

That's cool you will enjoy having your radio setup in your home a lot more you will be on the band more often chatting away the hours.
Tell me how bad have you got the CB radio BUG ? It can be kind of contagious by the sounds of it it has already spread LOL!!!!!

I'd say I got a good case of the cb radio bug. But theres only a few of us that do radios here on the eastern shore of va. so were really a rare breed over here. Back in the 70's and 80's everyone had one over here but not anymore. But I just enjoy the cb for what it is. Another way of communication. Im not into the cb competition side of things. Im just into talking and making contacts where ever the skip may take me.
