A little history:

This is the Browning Golden Eagle Mk III. This was the next in a series of high end radios from Browning Labs. First appearing around 1971, the MK III quickly assumed the role of "King of the hill" for those serious hobby users. As can be seen by the picture, this "radio" was actually housed in two separate pieces. The transmitter and receiver were each housed in its own individual box. This was a tube-type AM/SSB rig, with a multitude of user controls, including the standard essentials of Volume, Squelch, a "bandspread" (fine tune or clarifier), mode controls, and a nice large "S" meter. Tuning was accomplished by a continuously variable tuning dial which not only covered the 23 channel CB band, but included an "HF" portion as well, which covered from 27.285, up to 27.595. (This sale includes the VFO for all 40 channels) The transmitter also had a fine tune to track the receiver, and a built-in SWR meter with modulation functionality, as well as illuminated mode indicators. This rig was not cheap, as it cost over $750 in 1970's dollars, which was roughly double what a more modest SSB rig cost then. So consequently, there were not too many of them floating around our more modest neighborhoods.

The receiver was well designed and boasted an outstanding 80db advertised adjacent channel rejection, obtained not with the use of mechanical or crystal filters, but with several hi-"Q" tuned IF stages. The transmitter audio was strong and clear, with that warm "tube" sound. But by far the most notorious "feature" of the Golden Eagle was the "ping" which occurred each time the radio was keyed. It was never the same each time, but it immediately identified the radio as a Golden Eagle. Interestingly, this trademark "ping" was actually a design flaw, where the receiver was not completely muted, before the transmitter came up. The "ping" was actually caused by momentary response from the receiver, which the operator could hear as well as the people on the channel. But this "defect" actually became a selling point, so the engineers at Browning decided to leave it in. The "ping" became a signature element, something which set this rig apart from the "common" radio. In fact, there were a few companies and individual techies out there, who developed aftermarket add-on devices which attempted to copy this unique ping, but none could duplicate it exactly. The ping could be eliminated though, when it finally started grating on your nerves, or when running late at night, by simply running the squelch up to silence the receiver before keying the transmitter.
