Default Re: 10M FM - any activity these days?

I have done my share of converted CB's, but I prefer high power PMR gear now. Was there ever anything like these in the UK?: Motorola Syntor X9000, 110 Watts output, 29-54 MHz, 32-64 channels, noise blanker and alpha-numeric head, 1990's, does 10 and 6 meters in same radio, OR, GE RANGR, 40W (motorcycle) or 110W (automobile,) 29-45 MHz, 128+ channels, alpha-numeric head, OR, GE-Ericsson ORION, 29-45 Mhz, 110W, 256 channels, alpha numeric head. All as seen below. These usually cost between $ 50-100 for a complete set.

Unlike in the US, Europe never used the 30-50MHz range for mobile radio (except the Military!) so we didn't really have any "PMR" stuff that was easily converted to 10 or 6M.

Original post was about a 10m Pye Cambridge. Pye did support the low VHF range for export markets but did not venture much into the 100W outputs popular in US markets.
Not sure about GEC Marconi in Chelmsford, Burndept etc. I have never heard of it.

Well done Steve.

Turn it into a .zip file and you should be able to upload it to the forum in one go.
