Hey Brian,

First of all Welcome to CBRT, the #1 CB site on the net.

A friend of mine bought a Swinger 205 off of Fleabay for $25.00, and supposedly puts out about 80 watts.

so got it and the guy told me it quit putting out so i opened it up and the tubes were half falling out of the sockets :lol: so i put them back in and it puts out around 150w pep and about 100w dead key with 5w in. everyone i talked to gave good reports on the signal so not a bad little find. wish i could get more info on it but i have been all over the net and cant find hardly anything on it. cb tricks only has a swinger 707 on there.

I just retubed and recapped one and that is about the same amount that it was doing.
Swinger's were built in Elkhart, IN by the same group that manufactured Firebird's, Kicker's, VM's and others.
