SB 22 switchboard
« on: June 07, 2019, 04:23:38 PM »
Saw a SB 22 switchboard at the Tank Museum at Danville Va. It was $60.00 but I was not interested. Had all modules but no headset.Very good price.

Extremely good price if it was fully functional.

It might be worth a quick telelphone call to ask if they still have it and would they ship directly to you.

Thank you for that hint, they are now finding the shipping costs for me.

Probably not wise buy, but we used the SB22 when I served...

I have never saw a cheaper one.Single modules are listed on Ebay for $25.00 or more. The accessory kit for over $100.00 -all overpriced in my opinion.Trunk packs are harder to find though

I take the chance on this, $197 + whatever tax and vat will be.

Postage takes time, so it might be nominated to find of the month next month 8)
For me it is a lot of feelings now, havens used one since I served in 82-83 ;D

Now I really hope someone may come up with magneto telephone ATA's  ;)
