RadioShack 60-4027 49MHz Walkie Talkies

I thought I'd show you my latest eBay bargain that arrived this week in the from of a pair of walkie talkies by RadioShack.

They are RadioShack 60-4027 walkie talkies manufactured around the late 1990's. They operate on a single channel on 49.860MHz and I'm assuming they put out around 100mw of power.

They have a nice little morse code feature on the front which emits a tone when pressed with a keyed PTT. They also have a long rubber duck antenna on the top.

Of course these are only a toy and probably only have a range of a couple of hundred feet but the audio is suprisingly pretty clear! There is no volume control and the PTT is lockable.

The best part is that they only cost £10 which is great for a pair of vintage walkie talkies.

Thanks for reading!
