Conditions here have gotten quiet, I asked my local friends that monitor 38lsb if they heard 79, but no luck, it will happen, not to worry we will make contact!! Can't wait to see you get that grant, and the Lincoln is a heck of a radio as well. Both look to be what uniden should have done with the 980 in the first place. Darn FCC lol. Maybe I can have you get me one, wonder what shipping would be? At any rate, we will be listening for you for sure. Good day and god bless.

01-24-2014, 08:54 PM
Yes it will happen with a little more quality equipment I will make the trip across the pond...
As soon as radio arrives the video camera will be on, see what it will do out of the box ? ... Keen as mustard to get my hands on a good
NEW radio, still have that pc244 that's been totally restored but no covers on its way from USA but that will be to mod and play with
Lescom has v3 coming soon to fit that radio, will be my first mod :300 (128): .. Will be fun or failure ! We will all see as most will be on
hear somewhere.... Cheers 222 catch up soon... Solar radio 351... Darryl :300 (216):

Good for you Bro. I'm waiting on a amp myself. I know the feeling. especially when that big brown truck rolls up my driveway.


02-01-2014, 06:09 PM
What TNT amp did you get? I know about the radio, just not the amp, details.

02-01-2014, 06:42 PM
Hey Bro , how's it going? I have an Xforce TNT 600 HD coming my way. I got the remote box for it also. I'm going to take my time on the install , and do it nice and clean. This thing with my radio supposedly will DK 200 Watts, with 800 watts out. Should be a talker.

02-01-2014, 06:47 PM
Hey there fogdog, got the TNT 600hd, same amp my brother in law runs and he loves it. I am sure you will too. I saw in 351's post that he had an amp from TNT coming as well I thought that's what I read. Was just curious about that one as well. We have been speaking a lot with each other after making contact on 11m 38lsb.

02-01-2014, 07:41 PM
No no no gents .. Its my President, Grant11 getting sent with TNT freight .. But thanks for the tip guys as the little kl203-p will end up mobile in the 4bee... Hey guy DX is rockin on 38 right now !

Hey guys how this.. While speaking to owner of gagett city over in Australia ( he is a uniden dealer ) he tells me that uniden try to keep some of there product to certain parts of the world... How's zat for rude...
Even to attempt this in our modern world is rude and arrogant .. Do uniden think they are to good for us hillbilly's down under ? Ha ha ha
Because mine is on its way today in full export mode ! Im Happy as a pig in poo mine is comin home to Down umder... How many others made it through to us over I can only guess but if a dealer wants a pic ! Well says it all..

02-08-2014, 02:17 AM
Its getting close ! Had a look at the tracking info this morning and the radio got to Melbourne on Friday.. Not far now... Monday or Tuesday pix go up of the radio in use.. Great skip today world radio 729 in Honolulu was booming over for a long time.. Great day sunny as a solar station needs for a long night... 351 Tassie...

02-08-2014, 05:14 AM
Looks like we could get them here in the US, but with taxes and shipping it would cost 3-400 dollars. Waiting on the Lincoln 2!! Don't get me wrong I would gladly take a grant 2 lol. Can't wait to see the photos and hopefully talk with you again someday. Cheers mate and 73's.

02-08-2014, 06:55 AM
We will speak again soon mate, the Lincoln 2 is available now with my contact you can be the first in the USA ! And the post Was not too killer $$ ... Exciting times for me mate, what with the new Grant 11 on its way and a new 5/8 shockwave antenna all new coax fittings and my mast extension I hope to be pumping it over the pond to you and other junkies.. I gave you + Caveman a few calls the other day too... Folks over this way say that the skip is going to be real good for the next few weeks, mornings and evenings especially.. I am getting some good reports from mainland oz regarding signal and audio and all I did was clean the ally stick... Still looking into building a box beem do you know about them ? One bloke on hear has one... Been told they are the best beem going ? True or false ???? Cheers and 73s from Down under..... Solar radio 351... :300 (238):

02-08-2014, 07:33 AM
Good deal about the radio, I may have to take you up on that offer!! Let me get some funds together and if possible can you get a price for me and shipping as well?? A PM might be best. Anyway as regards to the antenna I am not very familiar with most, just the general ones. JJD would be the man to answer that question as he knows his stuff about antennas, maybe PM him and ask. He is a very nice guy and will help. And can't wait to hear from you, I have been hearing a few oz stations getting called back, but I am not able to even hear them in my mobile, my friend with a big base thought he heard you calling for me the other day but couldn't get back. Anyway good to hear about all the new goodies and looking forward to the photos!! God bless and 73's mate.

My lovely girl got me a gift for the quite times on the cb and while I work ...

1378 1379. 1380 1381
Looks good and sounds even better... Just a CD,am fm radio dose mp3s and iPod ready and all that jazz .. JVC brand still working its functions out.. Another toy.. 351 Tassie.. :300 (206):

02-08-2014, 08:08 AM
I give you a call most days a few times. Ozzie's are so competitive if they hear from the USA they stop all over each other trying to be the first/ loudest . I say every now and again " the most southern station in the nation" the response from the yobbos is funny as ! It will happen again soon we can cheat and set it up hear ? .. Not so much of a lucky dip then ! I will get a price on Monday and post to sunny Florida... See how you go with the funds whenever your ready I would love to be of help to you to get it early ( for USA ) or even make a discount, Simon did tell me export model's are in limited numbers and are the best to get as far as open radio's go's, you would have seen how easy the mod to grant11 is ? 9 bands 40ch on each ..... Lincoln may be the same with a export radio being better than standers... Do you want me to ask Simon ? Aka simonthewizzard... Oh yea you replied to the comment I put up about " nice guy " ... 73s my friend... Lovin this website !! :300 (198):
.....Solar radio 351 deep south tassie...

Any ideas why the Grant II made by Uniden is reportedly not going to be handled by US wholesalers/distributors? FCC Type approval? All reviews say this is a great radio. I'm hesitant to drop $300-400 USD plus shipping on the Grant II or Lincoln II at this point and might go back to looking at the 980 SSB.

02-09-2014, 07:32 PM
The 980 got the tick because its all locked down. The grant 11 is not and will transmit on FM witch is a big problem for some country's... Being a radio that can be 9 bands on FM/am/LSB+ USB yea and more they have band some radios over there for less true ?
All depends on your use of what you have.... And what u need from a radio I suppose.... 351 down under...
