Product Description
UPDATE: My sources tell me that RF Limited has started bringing the RCI's back! I have been able to purchase more through my distributors.

This radio comes with all the LesComm enhancements. 200 Watts using 8 IRF520 MOSFET transistors.

— 10 - 12 Meter Bands — Large Frequency Display with Dimmer — Improved Receiver Design — New Backlite Display — Variable Output Power Control — Active Frequency Scanner — Receiver Clarifier (±0.5kHz) 16 Programmable/Erasable Frequencies — Noise Blanker/ANL Circuitry — Frequency Selector Lockout — Programmable Repeater Offset — Public Address Feature Ranger Communications once again sets the performance and reliability standard for entry level amateur mobile transceivers with the latest generation of our popular RCI-2970 series of cost effective, multi mode, high performance transceivers. Introducing the new RCI-2970N2. These new models feature microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new RCI-2970N2, rated at 200W PEP are perfect for the recent band openings on 10 and 12 meters. Now you can upgrade your mobile Ham capabilities with a radio that is rich in features and reasonable in cost. The new models have retained the operating features of its popular predecessors, including programmable repeater offset and capabilities for a CTCSS tone option — great for increasing repeater activity on 10 meters — and receiver scanning for quick search of active frequencies. The units offer three methods of frequency selection, non-volatile memory to store and scan up to ten favorite frequencies, and front panel frequency selector lockout. In addition, the Series offers an impressive array of design and performance improvements: — An improved receiver: designed for increased sensitivity and image rejections. — A double FET balanced mixer: for improved receiver intermodulation rejection. — New power supply protection: and temperature compensation for improved stability and reliability over wide temperature ranges. — Surface mount components: for increased resistance to shock and vibration. — Improved display lighting: for easy reading in a wide range of light conditions. — Variable Power Output from 10 watts to 200 watts (RCI-2970N2). Tuned/Peaked/Aligned. Full coverage TX/RX For RCI warranty services; http://www.radioshopsupply.com/SERVICE.php *An Amateur License is required to transmit in the Amateur bands.

Basic Clarifier Mod
Product Description
This option locks your TX/RX together. Makes the Clarifier control both TX/RX frequency together. Highly recommended!!! Don't be one of those guys that sounds like Mickey Mouse when he yells CQ_DX! Keep your transmitter and receiver locked together. As one that almost exclusively operates on side band, this mod is a must! It is annoying when someone QSK's into a conversation that is totally off frequency. Then everyone tells them they're off frequency but he is unable to tune his transmit to where he hears everyone else talking. So he inevitably gets ignored. With your clarifier controlling both TX & RX at the same time, where you hear operators talking is where your transmit will be sending. *

The advantage is that your transmitted signal will be on the same frequency as the signal you are receiving. I'm sure if you've heard any skip on channel 38 you've heard people that are way off from everyone else. They sound like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. Some are so far off frequency that you cannot even understand what they are saying. To "unlock" the clarifier means that your transmit is no longer "locked" to where it was set at the factory. It allows you to move around the channel frequency to match your receiver and where everyone else is transmitting and receiving. It also allows you to move off frequency to have a more private/quiet conversation with a friend. We sometimes move to .380 vice .385 just to have a more quiet conversation. So yes, lots of benefits. I wish everyone had their clarifier unlocked.

Deluxe increases slide range.

TERMS: WE BUILD CUSTOM RADIOS! I BELIEVE IN QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY! (And from the sales I'm receiving, so do you!)

SO IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! Let me repeat that, IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! I SIMPLY REFUSE TO RUSH MY BUILDS. Each radio goes through 24 hours minimum of burn-in testing when it's finished. IT WILL BE RIGHT WHEN IT LEAVES MY SHOP!

Our Build Policy; Average turn around time for "CUSTOM BUILT RADIOS" is running between 180 to 240 business days at present (as of Mar 2019). Customers are taking advantage of the MANY custom options we offer. Depending on the difficulty of your build OR THE BUILDS IN FRONT OF IT, this time could be longer! There are NO REFUNDS for custom radio or amplifier orders. NO EXCEPTIONS! NO EXCEPTIONS! SO BE SURE BEFORE YOU ORDER!

"Custom" in this case means that you have added an option that requires a modification to the stock radio. Alignment and Tune ups do not constitute custom. But Max Mod, Clarifier mod, LesComm Enhancements, etc. constitute Custom.

Every radio gets tuned/aligned unless you specifically say not to. So, no options radios are now 20 to 30 business days depending on the model (as of Mar 2019).

20% restocking fee on "as new, non-customized" radio returns. Radios are built AFTER they are ordered in the order of "payment" received.

AGAIN, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR RETURNS ON CUSTOM RADIO OR AMPLIFIER ORDERS, NO EXCEPTIONS. So be sure BEFORE you order!

This is how it works folks. When you place an order for one of our custom radios we immediately (that day) order the necessary parts needed to build that radio including the donor radio, and set them aside for your build. So we have already invested your money in your order. We do this to prevent coming up short of the parts needed because it was discontinued or changed. (Which happens a lot!) I know this is a long time folks. But I'm only one person. I will work as fast as I can, without compromising quality, to get your order out. So as it says above, if you are an impatient person, do not order from me.

YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS WHENEVER YOU PURCHASE FROM THIS WEB SITE.

Side note; We have stopped selling custom radios on ebay. Because of this I expect build times to become shorter. And our build times are slowly becoming shorter. We very much appreciate your business. And to all of my many, many repeat customers a very special thank you. Tells me I'm doing something right! 73 Everybody!
