What basic radio
« on: May 29, 2007, 05:25:03 PM »


I want to but a basic, read low cost second radio for a soling class boat I have.
Looking on e bay for 40meg am radio's they all seem to have the left Chanel sprung to center, I want a constant sweep top to bottom type.

Can you recommend a low cost unit I can hunt for ?

Thanks

hi cliffords  what we do at fleetwood is remove the spring from the left hand rudder, this allows you to use a sail whinch with ease, and also do not buy that crap zebra radio, i had the misfortune of owning one and everybodys radio wiped me out.  hope this helps .andy
