Thanks Claude
I just wanted to know if it was Cybernet or Uniden boarded or any other, a pensioner friend of mine has found one and was interested to find out, I said I would try but can't find any information,

Thankyou.

I'm assuming it is a home base by the looks of the video

Quite ironic really as the radios were anything but Great.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

As said above, the 1000/3000's shared the Great-branded boards I believe, whereas the 2000 had the common Cybernet board and the later 2001 had the slightly cheaper Cybernet-type board from the Amstrads.

My Flid' homebase pulls in signals like nothing else I own. Back in '81, neighbours would wipe out all 40 channels, but nowadays its sensitivity really is a bonus.

The outgoing audio is very bassy though, but that's now its only drawback personally.

The Fidelity Homebase was a really good radio and they are well worth putting back into service. Superb receiver transmit audio is Crystal clear and they look so cool.

They're certainly easier on the eye than a lot of the other homebase rigs. It's just a shame the Cybernet board wasn't used for these.
Never, ever, ever....bloody anything ever!

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

Well that's scuppered my idea of getting a couple of Baofeng 888's and looking at who's on 446 this next pay day, this thread prompted me to look at the 3000FM homebase & subsequently buy one for £27... Could've nearly got 4 888's for that price lol
