Judging from your signature KG4SJO, you haven't messed with a CB radio in a while!

Nice stuff!

So many good old radios..

I agree the Stoner Pro 40 may have been one of the top ones.

I loved the look of the old DAK X(I had one of those) and the DAK IX (AM only Version) and the Browning Golden Eagle Mark IV. (always wanted one). Of course the Classic Cobra 2000 was a looker (my Base Station for years).

Anyone remember the Hy Gain Superbase? or the HAM International ??

But I miss my first HR2510(Stolen), and my first Sommerkamp TS2000(sold). I replaced the 2510 with the TS2000

and used them both daily for many a mobile local and long distance contact.

I could go on and on..

I think you mean the Ranger AR-3500, and I have to agree, those were awsome radios, But they were not built by RCI. The AR 3500 was built by Clear Channel Corp in Washington State, and were produced for them by Nissei in Tokyo Japan.

RF Limited started developing the Ranger AR-3300 In 1982, The lead engineer designed the front end of the recivers for most of the AOR scanners. Thatís the main reason the 3300 and 3500 radios have such good RX. These radios were built by a subcontractor to AOR, Nissei in Tokyo. The first production run was built about January of 1984 and delivered in April 1984 and Clear Channel Corporation was born. Next to come was the AR3500, which incorporated all the engineering changes and upgrades that Clear Channel was adding to the AR 3300 model here in the US. The 100-Watt radios were converted 30-Watt radios, most were done at their facility here in Washington State.

Today RF Limited Produces the Magnum radios, under the Magnum International label, but many people still think the "First" Rangers were built by RCI, because of the Ranger label.

Hope this helps clear up any confusion about the old "Ranger AR 3300/3500 Radios" and the newer " RCI Ranger 2950/70" radios <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D">

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.

Hello Audio Shockwave:

The loudest radio ever ah, hard to answer that one.

But the General Radiotelephone Super MC-11A where real loud, and there where up graded to the MC12. These radios where made by General Radiotelephone in Burbank California, on Burbank Blvd, near Hollywood Way St.

The MC11, MC11A, and Super MC11A radios used a German Audio Tube that was a driver inverter, and Push Pull function for the finial audio tube. General Radiotelephone upgraded the MC12 to have much larger and powerfull tube as the finial audio tube.

As the FCC tighten up the specifications on CB Radios, and required type acceptance, the General Radiotelephone Radios fadded into history.

Many use to call the General Radiotelephone Radios as "Junkey Generals" as the Golden Screw Drivers where placed in the wrong place, and the radios bleed quit a bit. But loud as all get out.

The General Radiotelephone SB-72 was a early AM and SSB Tube CB Radio. One of the 1960's deam CB radios.

These old General Radiotelephone CB radios can be seen at:


A truly rare web site and rare radios.

I meet George Maragold in the mid 1960's, (who was the chief designer at General Radiotelephone) as I blew up the ol Mans (Dear ol Dad) Super MC11A CB Radio, on more than one occasion. Whick cost me years of chores, but was worth it!

Give a e-mail if you want to sell one
