    Default Weekend Antique Store Find

    Me and the Mrs. took a trip to the antique stores looking for some stuff to fill up the new house. Well we walked around the corner and I saw this little gem sitting on the floor. SBE Console II CB base station and an Astatic D-104 microphone. Needless to say I snapped it up for the whopping price of 12, and it works!

    Not bad for 12 even if to put on the shelf in the shack.

    I've never used one, but what is the big deal with the D-104?

    I really don't know but it sure is cool looking. Some guys are converting them to work with the modern transceivers.

    People really liked the D104 mic. I had the no amplified version on my Heathkit HW-101. I think their popularity on the CB band was the way they looked. I never liked the sound of them. When I was doing the CB base thing I used the Turner +2 microphone. It was a great little mic and produced good audio.



    But wasn't as "cool" as the d-104 mics.

    My first CB was a Sonar FS-23. Tube radio. This thing was old technology when I got it. I think I was 13 and it cost 100

    Pretty cool. I was in one recently and they had some old cbs but I was in a hurry and the guy had everything marked up so I didn't pay too much attention. Did get some cool old reading materials though.

    Sent via messenger pigeon. I talk, he types.
