Default Ranger TRE-936 FFC


Hey guys.
I was checking out new products on CB Radio - DTB Radio's Front Page and Ranger has a new(?) CB radio out with a built in six digit frequency display(counter?). Has anybody heard about this radio? Comments please.

It's got a Galaxy stock hand mic rebadged as a Ranger. The pic was too large to upload.

I wonder why they would do that instead of using the Ranger sra158 which is arguably one of the best stock hand mics ever made?

Wouldn't know. I sent DTB Radio a email asking about this radio. I'm thinking,"why would Ranger put a freq display/counter on a cb radio unless it could be modded for extra freqs.
Here's a pic of the mic for it.

Looks like the TRE-936FFC is the TRE-966FFC's little AM brother.

I think this radio's been out for a while. Some web stores show that it's discontinued


Copper Electronics replied to my email saying that yes,they(TRE-936FFC) are new but with no warranty

Just got a email reply from DTB. The 936 is discontinued and he removed it from the catalog.

Well,I received my Ranger TRE-936ffc Elite that I purchased from Copper Electronics only because DTB Radio didn't stock it. It came in a well oversized box(40lbs. 3/8" diced green chili pepper box)with lots of padding and two of their catalogs(one for a friend?). The 936's box is sealed at both ends with self adhesive labels saying,'Defective radios are to be returned to manufacturer. See inside for details'. This is evidently a brand new radio. It's all chrome with extra mini bubble wrap around the radio on top of the plastics bag it come wrapped in. The mounting bracket is chrome as well. Looking at the back of the radio,I see,'Made in China'( ). It's got a all blue display.
So,a 40 channel am cb radio with a six digit frequency display. Can anybody say,'extra channels?'.
Also,I ordered the L3S-3B channel kit from LesCom. Lester's Custom Truck Shop - LesComm Products
I emailed DTB about installing the LesCom kit in my 936. He says he can and that he's had no problems with LesCom products. Also,I contacted Lester at LesCom if the L3S-3B will go in the 936 and the Galaxy DX-959. He says that the L3S-3B works great in both radios.
