I'm not a mind reader, but we can't figure it out unless you share some details or at least a photo?

Would there be a way to tell what frequency each letter it is.

Good Morning All, It is an old 27 mHz marine radio. It has been rebadged as O'Donnell Griffin (ODG) It was also marketed under Weston and GME. Parts became obsolete in the mid 80s so yes it is a boat anchor. Regards

Ok thanks, I don't think anyone is using the old 27 meg up here, but oh well it was only $2 anyway.

It's an old 27 meg marine radio. 27meg CB is at the other end of the 11 metre band.

2 bucks sounds like a really good deal. Does anyone know if these things have a collectors market potential or something like that? I'm just curious.

Totally worth it!
Great, I'm back in this game again! I can bring on everything they've got. You can't stop me because I've found free no deposit bonus mobile casino 2018. And you know it well.
