Back in 1983 when I was playing with CBs there was an object of lust among all CBers. 

The holy grail of homebase radios.

The Yaesu FT-101.

for those of us who needed the digital readout, it was the FT-101ZD that we all dreamed of.

but today, I fulfilled my dream.

today, I received from the nice Parcel Force man, a 1974 vintage Yaesu FT-101B

Sadly, I wont get the chance to connect her to an antenna before tomorrow, but I can't wait!!

maybe I'll work out what's up with the 2m set too, but I suspect that once the Yaesu gets switched on, everything else will pale into insignificance!!!!

here's the shelf now......

Why do I get the feeling that She Who Must Be Obeyed is going to kill me?
