Valencia, as stronty said. I need you to funnel some of those 10 euro Alicante radios my way... Guys in my province sit on overpriced classifieds for 6 months
Didn't say €10. I got my boxed one for €45 BIN on Ebay.es. Got another one for €20 on Mil which needed 2 resistors replacing on the output stage . Another 2 360FMs , including a mk1, for €40 plus p+p from Madrid, also on mil. Last month a boxed 148 GTL on mil for 40 . 2 × 148 GTL DXs for 120 on mil......etc Just because someone lists it for €100 , doesn't mean that they won't accept €50 :) So. As I said. Shop around. I used to live and work in Valencia, and there's always a few bargains to be found.

Ahh right, misread what you said there. Yeah these prices make a bit more sense now.

No worries haha. It is in the car park next to the Mestalla stadium. Usually they do it between 7 AM and 1 PM every sunday, and also every public holiday. Sometimes they do it on saturdays. (Such as today)

If you ever happen to attend, hit me up and bring a walkie!

May wait for the new season and do a Sunday home game at the same time. I’ll let you know before hand with the handle, 2m? 70cm or 446? Cheers

The lettering isn't right on the 360FM one . There should be more of a gap on the bottom of the switches .

Got to agree with Sammy on that score, plus some of the lettering is off-centre, like the "S/RF" and "CAL" on the Cobra front pictured. I know they're silly little things and it's only a millimetre or so (and I've got an OCD about that kind of thing), but it'd put me off buying one because of it.

Plus, why spend that on a sticker, when for literally a couple of pounds more, you can buy a replica aluminium plate with better/more accurate lettering at the moment on ebay?

The Superstar 360FM place seems to be a hybrid of both the FM and non FM versions of the radio. It has the controls/switches layout of the 360FM, but the text under the channel selector is missing the FM.

These put me in mind of the Truck King decals which appeared in the mid 90's. Full of errors and, over time, prone to discoloration.

I'm with Mr. C. A couple of quid more would be a far wiser investment for an aluminium plate with correct detailing.

Far too many radio's to list here. But I do own a legal one...

There are other differences in the Superstar 360, there is no FM, obviously, as it's not printed around the mode knob, and it has a 5 pin mic socket in the radios standard form. I acquired a straight 360 a couple of years ago, they appear to be quite rare.

The picture of the 360 faceplate is wrong, FM should not be printed around the mode knob.

The CH9 and NB/ANL switches are in the wrong place for the model. Also the first control knob should be a single pot for the mic gain. Second is the dual pot for on/off/volume/squelch. Finally third in from the left a dual pot for RF gain and SWR CAL. Quite odd to look at. Here's mine for reference.

Obviously very bad research went into these Frankenfascia's.
