FIREBIRD METER AND UNKNOWN AMP???

Post by scott39654 » Tuesday, 01 May 2007, 19:12 PM

ANYONE EVER HEARD OF FIREBIRD METERS I CAME ACROSS A DEAL OR SO IT SOUNDED LIKE A GOOD DEAL... I MIGHTA SHAFTED MYSELF... ( NO DISRESPECT MEANT SHAFT) I GOT A 80 FOOT TOWER WIDE ON BOTTOM SMALLER AT TOP , A UNIDEN ZACHARY T RADIO , AN UNKNOWN TUBE AMP HAS 321 ON THE FRONT ,A FIREBIRD 2000 WATT METER , AND A TURNER +3B , AND 100 FOOT OF RG8 COAX... WELL I HOOKED RADIO UP USING MY WILSON 1000 RADIO WONT KEY UP. THE TRANSMIT LIGHT COMES ON BUT WONT EVEN MOVE ANY OF MY METERS. RECEIVE WORKS GREAT... NEXT I HOOKED THE AMP UP TO MY GALAXY 33 TO THE UNKNOWN AMP " YES I RAN A 3 WIRE EXTENSION CORD OUT TO THE TRUCK" I FIGURE SOMEONE MIGHT ASK... BACK TO THE AMP IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO KEY UP MUCH ON MY METERS. BUT THAT COULD BE ME I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH TUBE TYPE STUFF... I WILL POST PICS OF UNKNOWN AMP SOON...MAYBE SOME OF YA'LL CAN IDENTIFY IT FOR ME ANY WAYYYYYYYYYYY HE WAS ASKING $325.00 FOR ALL SO I FELL FOR IT AND BOUGHT IT ALL... I APPRECIATE YA'LLS TIME WITH MY RAMBLIN... I CANT SAY THIS ENOUGH THIS FORUM IS GREAT...
