Put your radio Shack on display!

You are proud of  your radio shack, aren’t you?

It seems that as the CB & Ham radio user population has thinned out over the last thirty years, the vast number of radio transceivers that existed in the hands of the general population globally have been collected by the die hards.

Many operators now still on CB seem to have a disproportionate amount of radios tucked away as spares and some bring them out to use on rotation by the sound of many QSO’s. It would assume many Ham operators are the same as well.

And why not? It is a good idea to keep the caps and other components going occasionally to prevent failure from lack of use by all accounts. I have probably near fifty pieces of radio paraphernalia that I have in various places around the property and I am sure there are many more of you that do as well.

This is a photo of some of my CB Citizens Band radio gear that I have collected over near forty years.

Like Moses I believe in two of everything just in case…

and a good back to base monitored house alarm system as well.


The above Citizens Band Radio setup did not last too long though, as it was most of the stuff I had in storage so it was replaced back into secure storage.

With it all gone I use the room with all my test equipment to make a workplace for repairs.




This CB radio station below is the main setup I use on a daily basis from my home office while doing computer work so I can keep an ear on all the CB and amateur ham bands and what is happening out there in the local Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong region on my scanners.
