I'm a ham licensee, but sadly cannot afford the equipment.

Hey DOGWOOD... good to meet you.

Let my ticket lapse a few years ago. Should go re-test and regain the license.

Ham Radio Hobbyists Come to Monroe for Annual "Hamfest"
 
     Ham Radio and computer enthusiasts from throughout the state of Michigan, North West Ohio, and Northern Indiana will eagerly gather at the Monroe County Fairgrounds Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15th, as the Monroe County Radio Communications Association holds its 42nd annual Hamfest and Computer Show. The spacious site is at the intersection of M-50 and Raisinville Road, 2 miles west of the City of Monroe, and promises to be packed with radio buffs eager to see the latest equipment, sell and trade used gear or simply to socialize and meet friends they've made over the airwaves.
    Dealer set-up is at 6:30 am, with doors opening for the public at 8:00 am.  Table rental is $15.00 each, trunk spaces are $8.00 each and admission is $6.00. The Monroe Hamfest features a number of commercial vendors as well as a number of amateurs with equipment to sell and trade. A vast array of amateur radio equipment and accessories, computers and software, parts, coaxial cable and connectors will greet visitors to the Monroe County Fairgrounds. The Monroe Hamfest has a large merchant building with 85 tables for inside sales, and outside, next to the building, a large space will be available for several hundred trunk sales spaces. There is plenty of free parking in the lot and handicap parking available inside the fairgrounds.

Here's your chance to get the best prices on equipment at the Hamfest Sunday out to the Fairgrounds.  The prices have really been coming down the last few years.

Anyone interested in finding out what Amateur (ham) radio is all about is invited to come out to Vienna Park in Temperance, MI this weekend June 28 and 29. From 2pm Saturday to 2pm Sunday the Monroe County Radio Communications association will set up and operate several radios, making contacts with clubs all over the United States and canada. This is our annual Field Day. A contest that provides practice for setting up radio stations in remote locations using only emergency power in the event of a real emergency.

The public is invited and encouraged to come out and see what Amateur Radio is all about and even get a chance to operate a radio and make a contact with someone else many miles away.

FF, Off hand I don't know of anyone local that works on tube radios, but I will check with club members to see if they know of anyone. I looked it up on google and seen that one was selling for quite a good price on ebay,

http://cgi.ebay.com/Robyn-T-240D-40-Channel-Tube-CB-EXCELLENT-with-Extras_W0QQitemZ120275196281QQihZ002QQcategoryZ1501QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Also found an owner's manual for it. 

http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/robyn/t_240d/graphics/robyn_t_240d_om.pdf

I didn't know they made a tube type 40 channel CB, I thought that by the time they increased CB from 16 to 40 channels that all the tube type were gone. I read somewhere that these were made by Panasonic and labeled under various different names like Colt, Gemtronix, Robyn and Teaberry.

These guys could probably help steer you in the right direction.
