    Two young ladies talking in a bar. The first says, "Yeah, he told me he was a ham, but all he had was a Bowfang and a CB-set."

    Why are there so many butchered FT101s?

    At least some dealers offer MARS mods on new rigs - https://www.gigaparts.com/gigaparts-marsmod-level-7.html

    I'm a little concerned that they don't require any documentation, so just anybody can buy their radio that way. It sounds like they at least try to discourage Freebanders, though I suspect not very rigorously.

    Not sure.

    You should save the crystals with the cut green wire in a safe place.

    We had a KWM-2A in the radio van that had a 15077.500 crystal installed.

    Because too many people had access to Golden Screwdrivers.

    Because it was the best CB radio on the market at the time!
