Review: RCI 2950DX Dual Band Amateur Radio
that will help with the difference between the 2950 and the first model of the 2950 dx .
They are both good radios. But the DX is great. I would never pay more than $125 shipped and insured to my door for a 2950(but in that price range the HR2510 reins supreme) So really I guess since a new 2950dx is only $240-260 you might as well save a few extra pennies. PLUS the warranty you get with the DX is worth it
So to sum it up Pro and Cons:
2950 (NON DX)
1.) Cheaper than the DX, but that is because it is USED
2.) decent freq coverage
1.) Hard to see the display in the light
2.) no warranty (because it's a used rig)
3.) noisy receive
1.) easier to see in direct sunlight than the NON DX model
2.) better freq coverage than the NON DX model
3.) cleaner receive than the NON DX model
4.) Finals are cheaper to replace (IRF520)
5.) Warranty is available (if it's a new radio)
1.) Cost more than the NON DX model
And A Bill Good designed MOSFET front end.
I could have sworn it was irf520, I know that's what's in the 2970n2 and the 2970dx
You probably looked at one of the later production runs after they switched to IRF 520 finals and the TDA 2003 Audio Chip.
The Early Serial numbers all used 2sc 2312`s and the original TA7222AP Audio Chip. I am to lazy to go un-mount the radio from my pickup and take a picture.
Here is the Schemo from Ranger on the early ones.
My 6900 F25 runs dual 2312`s as well.
I do not remember seeing one with 1969`s but it is possible.
My bad, probably was 2312's. I just wanted to make the point that the green DX radio's were not always mosfets. Heck the first run of the green 2970DX had the monster size heat sink even.
