Nice Portable


I was at my wifes house where she lived in (cement city) it was a rental complex made out of cement units! One day i just said i think ill see what this thing can do? If i remember it was 3-5w high power with the collapsible built in antenna! Man i almost fell over as 6m was Dead as could be! I lived in Lowell, Masahusetts and was hearing stations in 4 land georgia ect! So i went back to them and was getting 5/9 and solid copy! I guess thats why they call it the magic band? Wow what a opening! Well that made my day! Long story short i had a blast when 6m opened ! and i even sold the thing back in the 80 for $300.00 Nice 6m portable Joe KA1JFB 73
