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. 400 Watts using 8 RT1 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-2970N3. These new models feature microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new RCI-2970N3, rated at 300W 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 20 watts to 300 watts (RCI-2970N3). 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.

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!

Normal turn around times;

"Major Custom radio's" 280 to 320 business days.

"Custom/Modified radio's" 45 to 60 business days depending on model.

"Stock/No option radios" are usually 1 to 2 weeks.

Depending on the difficulty of your build or the builds in front of it, this time could be longer.

"Major Custom" in this case means that you have added an option that requires a significant modification(s) to the stock radio that takes more than 3 hours to install. Such as the SP-1a, AD-203, upgrading amp deck, LesComm RCI Noise Filter, etc. are considered Major Custom builds.

"Custom/Modified" examples include LesComm Enhancements, Basic Clarifier mod, Amp Switch, Hi Cut Filter, etc. just to name a few. However if you add a lot of these small upgrades it could move your order to the "Major Custom" category.

"Stock/No option" means just that. These receive only a general tune up.

***Does not apply to Scanners. Scanners ship within 48 hours of purchase.

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!

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, AND KITS, 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 ARE REQUIRED TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS IN ORDER TO PURCHASE FROM THIS WEB SITE.

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!
