    Extreme 2018 Microphone...get one while you can

Anyhow I still have one from years ago that has seen its better days, so I looked into buying a new one. The...

    Lincoln 2 receive overload

    I have a President Lincoln2 that i like as as far as features and transmit goes....however the receive on this radio is way too sensitive. Powerful stations on sideband sound distorted. I get way too much bleed over on sideband even from AM frequencies far from the ones I am using. Is this...

    Mounting antenna bracket to pickup

    I have been using a Wilson 1000 mag mount on my pickup, which works fine. However it is too tall for my carport. I want to use a 4 or 5 foot top loaded fiberglass antenna. I have an aluminum toolbox, would it be ok to just use one of the antenna brackets made for mirrors on semis? I could drill...

    Galaxy 99v2 drift or no drift on SSB?

    Looking at getting a radio with sideband that will fit in the cubby hole of a 2015 Freightliner Coronado. I think the 99v2 will fit. I like it's power output, just wondering if these are better then the 959s as far as drift goes. From what I have read on a couple of reviews they are pretty...

    What happened to RF Limited?

    Just wondering if RF is out of business or what. I know they have the Magnum1 out but that's it. I know that their RFX modules were popular as well as their radios. I was really hoping they were going to come out with a better and improved version of the S45 or 257 radios. I have used their...

    I bought this radio the other day. I've been looking around for an older ssb radio for a while so now I got one. I didn't know it when I bought the radio but it has some extra channels via the brite/dim switch and channel 9 switch. I get good reports on sideband and have made several DX...

    Is there any certain length for coax running to a wire dipole? I am going to mount the dipole in an inverted V from a 20' painters pole. I have tried the dipole about 8-10' feet off the ground and would use a couple of 18 footers with a barrel connection and actually had decent results. But I...
