    Will give the BC-455 a good home with its cousin a TCS-12 transmitter.

    Hi Nels,
    Is there a BC-348 receiver anywhere around there?

    Actually there is. But its condition is unknown and I think it's out of its box. It's still at my friend's house so I have not closely examined it.

    BC-348's are pretty common though. I think you'd do better to try and find one locally because the shipping would be quite expensive.

    Thanks for the reply. You are right about the shipping being expensive. For a nice one, it might be worth the cost.
