Here"s One For Ya,
Are the old Johnson CB"s worth a Darn? I"ll say Vintage 70-75.
That depends upon how big of a door you need to hold open or how big of a boat you need to moor...

Which one? The Johnny Q President was a great 14 channel, and perfect for any radio toys you might have.
All It says is Johnson. 23 Channel. It"s Free, I am just wondering if It"s even worth buying an Antennea for.
An coax and antenna can be gotten for next to nothing. So I'd say yes, get it and see if it'll work. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
Those old johnson are about as tuff as nails, so I would run it. Sure it ain't no galaxy but try it on someone else's rig and if it works run with it.
Thanks for the Input Guys!
And Burbinator, Holding a Door Open, and Mooring a Boat, JOHNSON RADIO! not Johnson Floorwax, or a Johnson Outboard!
I'm well aware of the distinctions between those items...
My experience with Johnson, at least on the commercial side, is that they have a substandard product comparatively to others on the market. The features, operation and reliability are such that many have started using them as door stops, boat anchors, etc. due to being able to purchase radios from other manufacturers that are a thousand times better.
Just an opinion from a man who has seen a lot of Johnson's junk over the years...
