    Wondering if anyone has tried this little guy and I'm wondering how the microphone connects. Can't tell by the photos. Almost looks like it's wired straight into the front and not on any kind of connector but not sure. It seems interesting!
    8 watts, AM/FM
    25.615~30.105mhz after the mod

    $59.59 Free Ship / eBay

    I owned 2.1 picked up every noise.the other 1 was quiet.
    The quiet 1 actually maade 10 watts .everybody gave reports the modulation was clear.unless they changed,the mic is hard wired.
    Not bad to get a huge amount of channels.i traded my pair for a uniden 980 i like lots better

    I have one with a Sirio 5000 mag mount and it does good as far as getting out. I turned up the modulation and it helped a lot. The mic doesn't unplug but it looks like a 4 pin socket would fit nicely. It sounds like a walkie talkie because the speaker is small but it gets the job done.

    I'm concerned about not having a switchable ANL/NB or front adjustable mic gain

    It probably wouldn't be much fo hunting weak DX, but the auto squelch seems to work fairly well. The main selling point is the small size. If you had a battery pack, you could stick this in your pocket and put an antenna on your hat.

    I get what your saying but FM is basically useless on 11meters and do you really need a small am/FM rig with extra frequency space? Now if it was a ssb unit then I would agree

    meh - This is all been a theoretical discussion anyway but I appreciate your input. FM is or is not useful only if there is a group of locals who like using that mode. - Does anyone need 300 channels? That's like asking does anyone really need a roger beep or echo. People like what they like and it's all a matter of personal preference. Thanks

    To add a 45 watt PEP amplifier, frequency display, digital volt meter, programmable memory channels, scan feature and 5 roger beeps, consider the Stryker SR-94HPC. I'd like to say it has a noise blanker too but unfortunately the manufacturer has been completely dishonest regarding the noise blanker switch. The radio has no noise blanker feature whatsoever and they have falsely labeled an Automatic Noise Limiter as a noise blanker. I don't really miss the Noise Blanker although I find it unacceptable for them to lie a bout having one and they have earned continued harassment until the advertising matches the product!

    I've seen these - they are TINY little <SNOTS>

    AnytoneSMT.jpg

    The connector is actually like the older Radio Shack 5-pin DIN style - that is a waterproof / dustproof
    (their packaging not my words) there is a dimple on it that is part of the "lock tab" that the DIN style used - you squeezed the dimple to push the tang down and away from the lock flange and pull out.

    It - the plug/socket - looks a lot like an 5/6-PIN like RCI or even a Uniden 678 - only it's a DIN-style from yesteryears.

    A WORD OF CAUTION - from their Ebay site...
    Use at your own risk

    I agree 100% that FM & Extra Channels are both useless.I purchased a Uniden 980SSB a few weeks ago & love it.I am shocked at how well it works & the transmit audio reports that it gets.Very quiet & sensitive receiver as well.It's a keeper.

    I agree FM is worthless unless you’re a ham and want to play around with a little 10 meter simplex, but that’s a rare choice at best. Being able to go below channel 1 on AM is a totally different story. When the skip is in you will be able to listen in on many groups using those lower frequencies to avoid all the hash and trash that's on regular channels. If you so dare, those stations down below are also easy to work barefoot. You will have little to no competition with other stations overriding your signal like you have on the regular channels.
