New Radio for The Keep

Picked up an old Cobra 2000 GTL today, with accessories. Will work it into the radio room preps at The Keep. Very nice addition found at a yard sale. YES, you CAN find some good stuff out there. The great thing about it is that the better half was the one that saw it, sitting on a table, up at the high end of the driveway, where it and its associated gear were sitting because it was too heavy to bring down. Mrs LP scored HUGE time. (She even paid for it.)

It belonged to an older gentleman that no longer needs its capabilities. I offered him a ridiculous price for it, knowing it was so, and knowing he would know that! He countered with a good price, and I agreed. I told him that I would restore its finish and use it carefully and with respect, due to its history.  He was please to see it go to a “good home”. We talked a while about our lives and parted as friends.

The base station came with the original external speaker, powered mic, antenna controller and selector, cables and a pair of amps. It fits nicely into our plans and might just be only marginally susceptible to EMP effects.

The image shown is not of our unit, but of the same model we happened across. With just a little work, we’ll have is just as shiny-nice.
