Drake R8B w/ VHF converter for sale **SOLD*** thank you
« on: September 02, 2022, 1435 UTC »
I hate to but I am selling my Drake R8B. The reputation of this radio for being a very worthy DXing machine is well known. The R8B is rated as one of the very best implementations of Sync lock!

It has a VHF converter but I have never used it. The previous owner (I am the second owner) said the converter worked just fine.
Again, just a great radio! In great shape. Sorry, no external speaker.
I will be happy to email a few photos to any serious buyer. I am asking $800.00 for it.

73,
Long live Pirate Radio,
Thanks,
Olddxer
