Product Description
One of the prettiest radios Ranger ever made. The SS-158FB4 is a reliable 10 meter AM-FM-SSB-CW mobile radio. With 175 watts peak AM, 100 watts RMS FM-CW, 400 watts PEP SSB, it provides high performance along with features such as a 6-digit frequency counter, Mic/RF gain, and echo.

The SS-158FB4 has dual echo control and talk back switch along with a blue frequency counter, channel display and meter. Designed for easy mobile operation, an affordable price tag, the SS-158FB4 will answer your needs for SSB mobile operation.

This radio can be upgraded using 4 New RFP2879, HG2879 or Toshiba 2879 transistors in place of the DEI 2879's (Black Top) transistors these radios come with, producing 600 watts+ PEP. The radio produced almost 1000 watts peak on a 100 amp power supply at 15 volts DC using the Toshiba Red Dot 2879's (Very Limited Supply). I recommend a 100 amp power supply to power the radio with these. You should then see it's full potential! Estimated 700 watts+ peak with the RFP or HG2879's and 800+ watts PEP with Toshiba Red Dot versions. Both the amp board and the transistors are costly and hard to find. Don't miss out! Get yours now! Toshiba 2SC2879RD are in very short supply and may become unavailable at any time!

Deluxe Clarifier. +5 / -5. BLUE DISPLAY. Better Dual finals. RX/NB/AGC Schottky diode upgrade. Blue/Red TX/RX LED. Receive circuit upgrade. Cuts down white noise. Continuous channels, no skips using the +10 switch. The radio has been tuned and aligned by a professional with the proper equipment. All you have to do is hook it up and start talking! Receive circuit improved to lower noise floor which lessens white noise. This improves the signal to noise ratio of the receiver.

After tune, much better than the stock RCI69FFB4! And with the lower white noise, better signal to noise ratio than all of the other stock SSB radio's! Comes with stock Mic, New Heavy Duty Power cord, and bracket. Frequency counter built in and blue color.

Tested before it ships so you know it'll work when you get it! Visit LestersCustomTrkShp on youtube!

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 days at present (as of Dec 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 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 Dec 2018).

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!
