These pics are not the ones I had (Haven't got anything left but the old Pace mobile , and the Maco amp,and neither one works)
First radio I owned.
Navaho TRC30a & D104
First base setup.
Ran this with a Archer (Realistic) 1/4 wave ground plane. The 'el cheape O base antenna. Cost a whole $12.95 back then.
Havent seen any around in years.
Avanti Astro Plane
Up-graded antenna after a couple years to this.
Never tried anything else untill last year when I went to an I-Max2000
I have changed back and forth between the Astro Plane and the I-Max a few times, But now the Astro Plane has got to have some more repairs made to it , so , the I-Max will stay up a while.....running about 30' high..
