We start the week with something technical and quite remarkable. Radu from Timisoara in Romania sent me a message which was super interesting and sure it will be for the techies out there such as Rob P in the UK as others. A Motorola with 80 working CB channels as well as repeater shift and working on 10 metres. Below are Radu’s words and links to the videos.
One information from Romania, finally I manage to modify a Motorola MT1000 for CB radio. Now I am just waiting for the summer to get some DX. Here is short video with some local channel 26 activity from Timisoara:

The HW modification were done and documented by another radio enthusiast from Romania some time ago but on a Motorola P200.
Anyways the P200 and the MT1000 share the same front end & PA schematics so I just needed to apply the HW mods. and for the RSS programming SW I made a modification so that out of band frequecies can be written in to the radio.
Complete modification for Motorola P200 can be found here:

For the MT1000 99 channels I can provide the modified RSS software if someone is interested. As a summary I ended up with a professional hand held with 80CB channels + 19channels programmed in 29mhz on the repeater area.
