Does the clarifier function act the same as the others in that it remembers how far off you were when you changed channels and comes back to the remembered frequency. That got to bothering me after a while....

I would really be interested in how the recieve rejects other channels, I have had the RF Rain Alpha and am using the CRT SS6900 now, yes the 6900 is a much better operating radio compaired to the RF Rain Alpha but both of them have or had bad adjecient channel rejection, I have an issue with warehousing close to me, guys in trucks waiting to load and unload all times of the day or night. Of course most of them run some kind of power and in doing so really gets in the recieve of any of the programmable radios that I have had. Really that is the only issue I have with the 6900, other than that it really is a great radio but my new Yenticom Optima doesn't have that problem or the Magnum S9 that I use as my base radio most of the time.

Funny you mention that, one of my peeves is that the clairfier knob is not straight up when on center slot, that just bugs me, a little one way or the other is fine but on my Alpha and SS6900 they were always at like 3 or 9 oclock, just bugs me

Got to test it out for a 10 mins this morning. Strong numbers on SSB, made multiple barefoot contacts with the Imax 2000. Good reports back. Hopefully over the weekend I can finish the full video and spend some time really testing it out.

It looks like it will fit a DIN opening. I was watching your video when your BIG hand came in front and covered the radio up.

I like the faceplate, do the controls feel tight and smooth?

Waiting for further info...

Controls so far do feel very nice - of course I've only had 10 minutes of use The size is pretty crazy, I'll put it next to some other radios tonight and will take some pics, you guys will get a kick of out seeing the comparison.

Can't recall, but seems like I read somewhere that this radio will take an 8 pin ICOM mic. lol, maybe it was in this post.
