Nostalgia

Allright, here's one for you all.
Wasn't sure where to put this, so here it is. Mods, feel free to move if it isn't right.
I was sorting through some old bookcases and things, having a bit if a spring clean.
When, lo and behold, I came across a Dick Smith Electronics (DSE) catalogue.
The 1992/93 1st Edition of all things. I'd forgotten all about it.
So, uploaded here for your reading pleasure, is a scan of all of the pages in the 'Communication' section.
CB, HF/Ham, Scanners(!!!) antennas and more.
Those were the days.

Enjoy,

The good 'ol days... Thanks Blake, I enjoyed looking through that.
I found my old UH-077 UHF CB, in its box, in my garage the other week and I was trying to remember how old it was.
Now I know...

Awesome! Thanks, Blake.
I have a Yaesu FRG8800 and was surprised to see it in the tricky Dicky catalog.
I had no idea it cost $1295 in 1992.
Anyone want to buy mine? I need to upgrade :-)

Jesus christ. Seeing that model made the memories of the old UH-005 come flooding back.

Could you scan and the email the Tasmanian pages? It would be good reference material for me.

Ah yes, ScannerFanatics!

I think everyone back in the day that was half serious about listening in, had a copy or two of this publication.

Was the source of information for everything - well before this thing called the "Interweb" arrived

Very nostalgic!
