MERRY CHRISTMAS 2014
Well Christmas is only a few months away, so I would start thinking of some kind of special gift involving the CB Radio Hobby. Maybe a new or used base radio or how about a nice mobile radio. There are plenty of accessories to add to your CB Radio Shack. There are some nice SWR Meters, Antenna Tuners, Power Supplies or maybe a nice Base or Mobile Antenna. The Ideas are just endless when it comes to thinking of something you may want for Christmas.
Maybe you want a different kind of radio to add to your shack or wherever you have your radio set up. I would think about a nice shortwave radio and there so many it's hard to choose. I would go for the Grundig Satellit 750 hint hint. Another fine choice is an excellent police, fire scanner. There are some awesome scanner radios made by bearcat as well as other manufactures. Maybe you need a nice fiberglass telescoping mast to attach a dipole antenna or off center fed windom antenna to. I just received the new 2015 MFJ Catalog and I see they have added some new telescoping fiberglass masts. The prices of these masts are not bad at all and they still sell the other fiberglass masts that can go up to 50 feet tall.
One other nice addition to your shack may be a Ham Radio. If you have your license or are planning on getting it, I would start looking at ham radios now. Maybe you just want to be able to listen to the Ham Frequencies. As long as you are not transmitting you will not need a license. But why not go for it anyways and expand your radio hobby. Of course there are some communication receivers that will receive all sorts of frequencies. All you need is a simple dipole antenna and a power supply to power the radio. Most of the newer base ham radios have a built in antenna tuner, so you can easily tune the antenna.
Well That's all for now so thank you for reading and Merry Christmas !!!!!
