    Default Does anyone need these old Railway radios

    Hi,Our Voortrekker kommando had these old 2 way radios, we are throwing them out, so if someone is interested let me know. There are 4 of them, and some spare whip antennas. the batteries are fubar. Let me know, they are for free. If I posted this in the wring group, apologies in advance.

    Probably 29MHz AM. Quite good for what they were back in their day.

    I agree - In their day they were sort of considered as the "professional radios" in their class as apposed to consumer CB radios.

    So a Handic CB coupled to a Handic loaded antenna put you in the "in crowd".
