New old radio

2 weeks ago I bought an old Amstrad cb901 from Ebay for £20. I always look out for them on there and I already own a cb900 version (without the roger bleep) boxed and mint condition. This one seemed in nice nick so I took the plunge. I'm glad I did as it works perfectly, apart from having no mic and dc lead, which I had for a Harrier cb and made a dc lead up it's brill.
I had a qso with a pal for 2 hours last weekend and it was great, never heated up, dials don't crackle and the bleep works :). I did have to adjust output power back up to 4 watts as it was only showing 2.5w. I'm going to enjoy using it over the summer 'skip' season.
