Sid's Sunday DX Net 14/04/2019

Video:YouTube/Mike1074 DX

Another video from one of the many UK CB Radio nets.

CB radio in the UK has certainly had a major boost in the past 5 years since AM and SSB were legalised with multiple nets springing up around the regions. Most of the new nets are on SSB with a couple on AM, but as you can see FM has not been forgotten.

President Walker II FCC - NEW Photos

President have released two new photos of their Walker II FCC radio. Same in design to the EU version but with the 'brushed aluminium' front, and of course, this radio is 40 mid-band AM only, don't expect any hidden goodies in this one. 

The radio looks nice, certainly better than the black EU version, but those cheap looking switches and knobs spoil its appearance in my opinion.
