Is there anyone on here who would like this old radio? It's about 30 years old. Should work, it was used for school of the air and for our general comms back in the late 80's and early 90's and has just been in a cupboard since. Cheers Toni

Looks. Like an old 8525, I still have The very same radio, and works fine

If you can’t give it away Toni, is there any museums in your area that might apppreciate it?

We have one the same, that Linda won in a raffle run by Mt Isa RFDS, which served us well for SOTA, radphone & general comms duties too. Sadly, bit hard to find anyone to talk too these days, since the DRCS phones spelt the end of the HF “community”.

I thought there were still radio hams out there but they probably want new stuff. Cheers Toni

There are a lot of amateur radio (ham) operators out there that still go for this sort of thing. I've sold a lot of old Codan 7727, 7727C, 6802 Mk 2 and 7727TB etc all to amateur radio operators. They have the 100 W transmitters in them and have both LSB and USB. The 8525, If you have the microphone and power leads etc, worth around the $250 mark. Little more if you know what frequncies are in it.

Good onya for posting it up.

Hi Steve, the radio is here at Kilcowera. We can get it to Brisbane or Toowoomba eventually if that helps. Toni

This radio does have all the co axe, microphone, bull bar mounted antenna and cradle. There is also a list of the frequencies installed on it. Cheers Toni
