  1. I believe that at least one of each of these radios should be bought from you at an appropriate price from a major NZ Museum for public display into the future. The CB Radio Boom Era and its influence on the world prior to cell phones should be officially preserved somewhere, and why not NZ? After all you Kiwis did make some decent two way radios from Tait. Anyway would be great if you did some really good high quality photos of all the different models you have.
    Promise I wont misappropriate them for my websites! At least with acknowledgement!

      Before I die I would like to write up the histories of the various companies and present that along with the radios. It would be my dream if before I die I could locate the collection in downtown New Plymouth so people could drop in and browse around..as well as having a desk and radio for people to use! Plenty of skip from Eastern Australia to join in with.

  2. That would become the Mecca for ole time cb radio operators globally to flock to in the summer to try the DX and learn about all the cb’s that they have never seen in the metal before. I think you may have trouble finding out all that information as time goes by except for some prominent models. I have been all over NZ visiting my Auntie who now lives in Auckland, but always missed New Plymouth in my trips. That would be a great excuse to visit her and see your museum as well, but I would need to use one of those ARF2000’s to work the DX!!🙂

    Mike keeps one 2001 on his bench…dunno why, Takes up room…They are all different variations just like the tram 201’s. Need a browning 4A to round them off. I like the Royce 642 base. lots of colours to look at. In Asia we had a lot of multichannel twin finaal rigs that never saw the light of day in the west. The remarkable SA280DXII was a great set in its day. Had a minus 5khz switch.
    Hard to find good ones anymore. quiet receive and good TX audio.
    The history of Ranger is also interesting!! Read up about Jim Peng and his escapades with the FCC and law enforcement. It pays to be worth a few hundred million !!
