    Default Handheld SSB 27MHZ CB Radio

    Looking for a Handheld 27mhz SSB CB Radio at a reasonable price, Brand doesn't matter as long as it functions well.

    Have been trying to locate one for 2 Years with no success.

    Cheers.

    I have a number of old RadioShack 27MHz handhelds bought from Tandy that are sitting in the shed, but not looking at getting rid of them. You likely won’t find them new here anymore because of the prevalence of UHF CB now.

    There are some second hand ones on eBay and Gumtree, but if you wanted new you’d likely have to import them one. Plenty still available from UK/EU and US sellers.

    Yep, SSB as well.

    Thanks for your replies, RadioWorld and other UK sites seem to either be sold out of the Albrechts or they won't send to Australia because of trade restrictions or something. I'll keep searching the markets here for the time being until something pops up on the internet. The Reason I'm trying to find one is that I travel interstate a fair bit now on work trips and would like something small and portable that I might be able to use while out and about. I'm pretty sure a President Grant won't fit in carry on luggage!
