    Im looking at both as I need a smaller radio for my ride and im split between both. How to they sound on SSB is most important and are they loud on AM?

    I can't speak for the Lincoln ii but I can say that the 6666 is an outstanding radio right out of the box. I'm so pleased that it got another so I have as base and a mobile. Excellent ssb performance and punchy am audio. Just my $0.02

    They both sound great on SSB. I was impressed with frequency stability and audio quality. I don't do AM so I can't help there.

    The President has a 2 year warranty that can be extended to 5 if you buy their antenna. Does the Anytone even have a warranty? I have heard excellent things about both radios although I don't own either one. I was looking at these a while back and then came across a good deal on a Stryker 955.

    Here is an excellent review on the Lincoln:

    I like both , but have been leaning towards the Anytone . Just because a friend has one . Iv'e heard/used it . I like all the Bells & Whistles it comes with and simplicity of use . But also have heard a lot of good things on the Lincoln . Decisions , Decisions , Decisions . Might be time for a coin toss ?:LOL:

    I have the same assessment after researching and comparing. Stryker 955.

    Yes that is one drawback to the anytone, no US support as far as warranty. There are a couple of sellers I've seen that warranty themselves but I don't know about all that. I've owned one for quite sometime and the other for a couple of months with no issues but I can only speak for myself. Like you said, decisions decisions!

    Well Thanks a lot all ! I never considered the Stryker until these posts , Talk about decision's ? $ wise it's right in the Ball Park & if spec's are close a little more wattage than you can get from an At-6666 .:confused::eek::whistle:

    The clarifier on the Lincoln 2 is incremental which means you're going to have some dead spots.

    I have all 3 and I like the Anytone best for its compactness and ease of programming. But for a full size radio that 955 is GREAT! Plus it's really purty!

    Lincoln II over the Anytone - just better build quality, even in the plastic on the front. They both are good radios but 10 years from know I'd bet the Lincoln will still be working and the Anytone will be in the trash based on the quality.

    Stryker works fine but definitely isn't a nice compact radio like the Lincoln and I like the frequency adjustment way better on the Lincoln for freeband and 10 meter.
