I am more interested in that new mic. I hope that would work for me on my RCI-2970n2. As stated before in my posts ( ahh somewheres ) the Astatic 636 is too tinny for me and the RK-56 is too much bass so there i am stuck unless i pay out the wazoo for the 575. Keep me informed on that Rob. Thanks.

You raised an interesting point. The item in the above post came to Sam's attention when he received many phone calls about it. This ad is a fake, a phoney, a hoax - nothing more. Someone had photo-shopped the whole radio ad together. Sam had to deal with phone calls for many days over that one.
As well as today...

The 457's scenario is whole different story. The radio and accompanied box came out just as the FCC has posted an edict against external amplifiers being used by all interstate truckers. The companies told their drivers that anyone was caught with an external amp that they would be immediately dismissed. Since the 2nd unit attached to this radio appears to be an external amp - no one bought them. Neither was it an external amp! No one wanted that kind of trouble; so it wasn't bought from fear and reprisals from this 'edict'. They started production with only 1,000 and then had to stop - due to this sudden marketing condition. So, if anyone has one - it is a rare piece indeed. They do exist in small numbers. Maybe a handful or so in possession by a few individuals today.

Sam said that the Astatic 575 copy/mic will be on the way to me in the next few days. The mic itself will be available on the market in mid February. Probably on the shelves or on internet stores too.
So we will have an exclusive first review on this mic - here on the World Wide Radio Forum!

I will be comparing this mic to the D-104 Astatic handheld mic, an 2018Xtreme, and a borrowed 575 Astatic mic - as a matter of fact...

Boy, sure looks like a real ad. Wonder why someone would go to all that trouble and imagination for a joke???

Looks interesting none the less.

Rob
Thanks for the clarification.I received the ad a few years ago and honestly thought it was legit because at the time Magnum was showing a 40 meter rig on their website with the same styling.Sorry for any inconvenience caused to you or the staff at Magnum/RF limited.
