I am looking for a radio tech to work on a mobile unit for me. I will be using it as a base. It is a Realistic TRC-450, I have owned many sideband radios...including a Galaxy DX959 that's been tweaked, tuned, and aligned that is currently my mobile...Ranger, 148's, Grants, etc., but the TRC-450 is one of the best sideband unit I've ever used (my opinion of course).
The meter is out and It may have a mic issue as It cuts out if I don't squeeze the mic button down really hard. Other than that...the radio seems to operate great...talking on skip I am able to reach far and distant stations with great mod...but, since it needs to be opened up anyway...might as well give it a check up. Possibly an alignment?
I will of course pay the shipping to and from...want to know who you all trust your radios to...Thanks, _Alan
