    AR 3300 are really old radios. One of the first 10 meter export radios to come into the country. Clear Channel imported them which is Magnum RF Limited today. They do have some problems. Most of todays is just parts failing cause of age. Some parts are hard to find for them. They are a decent performing ssb radio.

    Both the AR3300 and the AR3500 are very respected radios still to this day. They sell easily from $200 and up on eBay and considering their vintage, they still outperform many of todays modern stuff being thrown at us from the orient. Their quality of audio is prolly their strongest attribute. It's not uncommon to receive reports telling you that you sound like you're using a high-end ham radio. And rightly so since they were built in the shadow's of them, to compete against them. If you have the opprotunity to get a AR3300 for a reasonable price, don't hesitate. If you want listeners to think you are talking on a loud, quality base, buy a Ranger AR3300/3500. For that matter, in the right hands, they often outperform many bases!

    They both are good radios.. I have the AR-3500 100w with sp1-a speech processor with a stock mic and they say that it is as loud as my 2995dx with the sp1 and power mic. Has been good since the day I bought it.
