Re: {Collins} 75S-3 for CB!

Great find! Nice to see it rescued from the Children's Band. My very second ever Collins, was a KWM-2A, that some CB'er wanted to trade for a Yaesu FT-101E. I wound up trading him some old CB junk, and 2-Hallicrafters receivers for it, back in the early 90's. then money got tight, and I sold it for a lot less than I should have, but I got my investment out of it, and the OM who bought it, was happy and appreciative. First Collins was a 75A-1, that I had to give it away, to sell a Viking II, with the 122 VFO, for $175. Another, in a long line of radio regrets.
BTW, it is officially Christmas, here on the Left Coast, so let me wish all, a Merry Christmas.


In tough economic times, it is purported to be beneficial to invest in precious metals, like platinum, gold and silver. Personally, I choose to invest in blued steel, brass, and copper jacketed lead.

Abe Lincoln may have made men free, but Col. Sam Colt made them all equal.

Sent from my relatively bright, electronic leash.

I'm bringing up a 75S-3 / 32S-3 combo, both recently purchased, but not as a pair.  I was pleased to see the 10 meter crystal slots were all full in the 75S-3, saving me from buying the extra 10M crystals.  But when I pulled the crystals to see what frequencies they covered, I was surprised to learn they were for 27.0, 27.2, and 27.4 MHz.  I guess a ham wannabe used this on CB at some point, obviously a good choice.  I'm enjoying some down-time from work for radio time.  Merry Christmas to the group.
