    Better than average SSB radio

    I have used the Uniden 980 in the past,Rock Solid on SSB,no drift,the only negative ( hasn't happened to me personally) part about the radio is that I hear the Screen displays have a habit of failing from what I have heard,also I hear the President McKinnley is a very good radio on SSB( haven't...

    It's been so quiet up here in Central Pennsylvania, nothing on air when I fired up the Ranger earlier this evening, haven't made a contact since 8/23,that's how bad the Conditions have been since then,wish Mr. Sun would start doing some work and fire up the propagation and so forth, hopefully...

    Uniden Bearcat 980SSB (later revision)

    No link,but just 2 ideas,a bigger final to where the radio can do more than 4 watts am and 12 watts SSB,and also figure out how to stop the display from wearing out prematurely when mounted in a car due to extreme heat or Cold,lots of complaints that I have heard about on the 2nd idea!!

    Where are the cobra fm cb radios?

    Good point, however wouldn't that also have affected the President CB radio from doing the same thing,yet they have their line of am/FM of CB radios out for sale already,etc... just wondering.........
