Thumbs up Brad 2RA123 Alabama CB eSSB QSO


For all of you who strive to get a great transmit audio in you CB station, please check out the audio file attachment below.

Brad has a station that many of us would like to run. The results speak for themselves. He runs a tilt-down 120 ft tower with two stacked 5 element Yagi beams. The radio is a Kenwood TS-850 with a MXL 990 mic and some Behringer gear.

One of the best eSSB stations I've heard out there on the CB band.
That's right; this was transmitted and recorded off of lower sideband ch 38.
NOT 'AM' MODE . . . sideband!

Conditions were excellent this early evening on the West Coast of CA. I was also on a 4 element Yagi and I heard Brad key up and asked him if I could record this QSO.

Great sounding station there - Brad!

I think that the MXL mics - and the MXL 990 mic in particular - have proved their metal. They are fine mics and work exceptionally well for Amateur radio as well as CB and home recording. Their low cost doesn't mean you get substandard performance. I have a couple of them; an MXL V-88 and a MXL V-69 ME. For this recording I used the V-69 ME. I didn't run any processing gear as yet, just the V-69 ME mic and a mic preamp made by Behringer. I am about to put the Behringer DEQ and the Ultrafex Pro inline soon.

ON MY SETUP I USE THE MXL990 BEHRINGER MIC 2000 THE NEW ULTRA CURVE PRO 2496 THE VITTULIZER PRO FOR SOME SLIGHT PLATING AND THE VOODOO FX 32OO ULTRA FLEX FOR THE SONICS. IVE PLAYED AROUND WITH SEVERAL OTHER PIECES AND FOUND THESE FOUR WORK THE BEST FOR ME WITHOUT ALL THE CONFUSION OF MULTIPLE RACK PIECES. I USE ALL MOGAMI CABLE I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY NEED FOR THE FERRITE CHOKES ON MY SYSTEM YET.THE ULTRACURVE PRO IS A VOODOO BLESSING IN ITSELF BUT IS A TRUE HAIR PULLER TO SAY THE LEAST.... FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO ! THIS IS RADIOAMERICA 123
