Default President line of radios


Can anyone list all the U.S.A. named Presidents that have been marketed under the President brand of CB/Export radios? Please also indicate "rare" on any models that are hard to get.

What is the difference between the Jack and the Jackson?

Jack is 40ch MB8719 radio, 2sc2166 driving 2sc2312, AM transmit strip with transistor AM modulator like ept36xx or ept 69xx boards so NPC can be done and this radio is booming on AM.
RX strip is similar to jackson, but single IF, AM is going through SSB crystal filter, so RX is narrow and selective.
For me the best mobile radio, I owned hundreds of them in the past.
Mike

I remember all the hubub when that Roosevelt radio was to have come out, never came to pass.
The Super Star 4900 Base was the same radio, but not many of them survived the 12 volt on the mic plug test.

I would like to talk to someone that knew what transpired when President Belgium became President France.
Suddenly everything they made was priced like it was gold plated.

List so far...


President...

DX Grant am/fm/ssb

Jackson black face gray face

Dwight D.

President Madison

Lincoln

Adams

Washington

Ronald

Mckinley

William Henry Harrison.

President Jack.

This one does not count, as I could not obtain this model: Roosevelt (perhaps some prototypes out there?)

from what i recall the president jack is the same 80 ch chassis as the stalker 1x (version with fm,not ukfm version), when originally sold it was sold as a 40 ch am/fm/ssb radio to make it legal in certain european countries. easily modified.

others not yet mentioned are:

president benjamin 120ch (once modified) homebase.(probably rare outside mainland europe)

president franklin homebase 200 ch (a to e bands) (ept 3600 chassis, sold in silver and black fascias) similar to galaxy saturn i believe.

president richard

president jackson 2

and a whole host of am/fm only exports with the president jfk being probably the most popular of them in europe, most of the later french president radios can be modified, usually already set up inside and only a couple of wires from band selector need soldered,

even the newest range of president am/fm mobiles and the jackson 2 are all easily modified for export work (more often than not a case of cutting one white wire and moving a 3 pin jumper with 2 pin shorting link from the two links its on too the other link and the centre one it was on originally.

for a pretty comprehensive listing of most president europe radios check out :

Les Postes de la Marque Prsident




@ jeff audioshockwave,

as far as i'm aware president europe came out of a company called csi france, which imported the csi commanche/pawnee radios, (possibly they bought over president in belgium), (although i don't remember them being in belgium,only cb company i remember that was belgium based was ham international, but back then the internet was a dream and information was pretty thin on the ground, especially as these radios were illegal in every country in europe and beyond)

even now finding any information on the history of export radios is nigh on impossible as no-one admits to having anything to do with them (just try asking cobra for information on the 148 gtl dx, despite their name and address on the box they deny ever having had anything to do with them) SUREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !!! or try asking uniden about their involvement (another brick wall of denial)

double post, sorry

Thanks for clearing up my confusing on the Jack vs. Jackson.I was thinking the Jack resembled the Jackson but looking around I see that they looked more like the McKinley

You're right, very few of these landed on this side of the lake.I picked one up about 20 years ago at a shop in the 9 division, near Toronto.I always liked the low profile of the Uniden 810E/710E so I had to buy the Benjamin when I saw it on their shelf.

it does look like a mini sawn off jackson,lol. quite fancy one myself,and as you correctly say its almost identical to the mc kinlay. they are very rare here in the uk, as were most of the presidents i mentioned. ideal for using ssb mobile as it does 27.555 and it works very well.

yeah they look nice, again they don't show up here very often but can be had second hand if you know where to look like most presidents,(i don't want to say where as they are generally reasonably priced and if the numbnuts find out where to source them the prices will rocket,but if you think about it i'm sure you'll realise quickly where to get them,the clue being they were sold unmodded), i've seen a few advertised over the past couple of years but i was after another president radio at the time.

if i recall the service manual for the benjamin (including the 120 ch mod) is on servicedocs.com.

Latest List I can come up with:

President Harry II Classic

President Harry III ASC
President Harry III Classic
President Herbert ASC
President Jackson ASC
