At least the board and chassis looks cleaner than th JA.
Is it a decent rig...or stay away?
What a disappointment this radio will be for those who wanted a decent AM radio with echo.
The AM performance from this chassis design is poor at best; and adding echo isn't going to help it out diddly-squat.
Don't buy it!
There is NO WARRANTY FROM THE MFR!
Never seen the RG-99. I understand that it had great audio (according to DTB Radio) and had two audio IC's. But if you look at the underside picture of this chassis, it looks the very same as the Ranger SuperStar JA. No different. Sooo, that means the final would be the MRF-477; unless they pulled it out and put in a 2SC1957 or a 2SC1969. But I doubt that; they would have taken the large heat sink off.
I smell a scam here. I tried to call Chip @ Ranger twice today with no response either time. Think they are rooting/hiding over there because of the warranty issue. Very poor way to do business. I've given them more than four weeks and change to give me a straight answer.
Hey Ranger/RCI; I'm going to keep calling until you answer the phone and own up to this radio - one way or another . . .
It is an obomination.
They have blown all my emails off.
just looked at back and not pa jack. taped over
Great one Camaro1.
Nice looking radio.
I tried calling Ranger for parts last week. I got there recording left a message and the scum bags never returned my call.
I haven't had any trouble getting ahold of them. They don't carry "all" of the parts for the rangers. just specialized ones. like most of the smd components you would have to get them in quanity to get them from them. Your better off getting them from mouser or digi-key.
Old is right, the date codes on the ICs show it to be in the early 90s! :blink:
i had 2 of these old school superstar -33`s with the dual modulation transformers and i gotta say i was rather depressed with the modulation .maybe dtb knows a secret to getting the modulation but cranking the mod pot didnt do it for me .i eventually sold them both .
i did have inside pics but imageshack ate them
if i can track them down i will post them .i did love the old school look though .
found another shot
