    Icom F5021 Aux speaker jack not working

    Thanks for the info! I'm sure my mistake was leaving the dash speaker connected to the truck's system, and it back-fed to the radio. I've since installed a separate small speaker next to the dash speaker. I can swing a soldering iron, but I may just swap radios with my race car after converting...

    Icom F5021 Aux speaker jack not working

    This may be a long shot, but I'm hoping it will be a simple fix. I have the chase radio in the center console of my Raptor and ran an auxiliary speaker cable to the center dash speaker. I had heard that it wouldn't cause any issues with the chase radio (poor advice as it turns out). After...

    Vintage Funco - back in CA time to register

    Receipts... LOL! Most of the expensive stuff (motor/trans) I had laying around. Maybe I can convince Norm to write me a bill of sale. I'm not in a big hurry to get it legal.

    Vintage Funco - back in CA time to register

    I picked up a chassis an body of an old Funco from Norm Francis last year and put it back together. I was living in TX at the time and planned to race it out there. Well, after the request from my employer to relocate BACK to CA, i jumped at the chance. I'm now back, but in the Tehachapi area...
