Don't know if it is true or not but I was once told they are popular with the ham radio folks.

Depends what the tubes are. Some are used in older ham (amateur radio) equipment. Like us there are some guys into restoring old models. Workable tubes could be valuable. You might try craigs lists or ebay. (Yeah, I"m one of those ham guys, but not into restoring older models.)

Is an old 23 channel Tram CB base unit worth anything?

I have a base/mobile CB that uses tubes. It has a tube used as vibrator that works like todays inverter tech. Changes 12v dc to AC then back to about 300v DC.

It has crystals and only gets a few channels.

Anyone want to make an offer. No idea if it works. Like the old saying about tractors, it worked the last time I used it;)

The problem wiht tubes is they leak.

Probably could be modified for Ham radio on the adjacent ham radio band... If it has sideband, it would be sought after by some hams. Again, try craig's list, ebay.
