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).

Product Description
The SP-1a Speech Processor was developed by Clear Channel Corporation for the Ranger AR-3300 and AR3500 radios. It works well in most radios in AM FM & SSB. It is an audio processor that delivers an average of 90% modulation. It boosts lower levels to within 90% of it’s maximum output with a very low distortion. It connects in-line of the audio Mic input of the microphone jack. It also requires a 12 Volt connection in the radio. A SPST switch can be used to switch the SP-1a in and out of the circuit. When switched off the speech processor is completely out of the circuit leaving the radio back to stock audio. Price includes installation.

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.

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 220 days at present (May 2018). 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 orders. NO EXCEPTIONS! NO EXCEPTIONS! SO BE SURE BEFORE YOU ORDER! Every radio gets tuned/aligned unless you specifically say not to. So, no options radios are usually 10 to 20 business days depending on the model. 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 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. Side note; We have stopped selling on ebay. Because of this Lester expects 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!
