I use the CRT9900 (6666) exclusively on side bands. I spoke to someone within a few hours of getting the new radio and he asked what radio I was using (a ham who is also a pirate that I remember from 4-5 years ago, let's face it most hams are.. bottom line is 11m is the most exciting of the lot.) and he said you are bang on frequency which is rare and the modulation is very good.

I would buy the same radio again without a second thought. Very happy.

They have been largely out of stock for a couple of months here, that backs the good reports up.

Just make sure you fit at least 40mm fan on the back. (edit to update = 80mm fan !)

Here’s an FT-891 in my truck. I set my first 40 memory channels up for 11 meters. My VFO A/B are set up for channel 19 and lower 36 USB so I can quick change between my favorites. While mobile the radio is locked so I can’t accidentally change frequencies. About 50 watts on AM and 100 on SSB. Get great audio reports. The NB and DNR remove virtually all noise. I do get a tad whine when accelerating which I could eliminate with more bonding.
I have an FT-891. Use it for SSB. And it works great. I put a boom mic on it and set up the internal eq for am. They don’t have the AM punch of a FB radio. I wouldn’t have one as my only radio.

Actually today I have just "upgraded" the radio by putting a 80mm silent computer fan on it. The larger fan does not whine as much, so much quieter and larger area of air flow, and across the top of the radio as well, much better. I still just used super glue, it should hold up ok by the looks of things.

the difference between that and the 6666 is the 6666 has an extra filter and extra FETS for a little more power.

I had the 5555. Was a good rig. Bigger than the 6666. I currently had the 6666. If a 5555v6 fell in my lap I'd keep it though.

There are a few of those 5555v6 on ebay at the moment, they look ok and I think the programing cable is the same for 6666 and the 5555.

Anyone got there hands on the latest version Superstar 9900v4 yet?
As with all these I wonder if they got the bugs worked out ?
I like that they enabled 12 meters in the last one.

Is there a specific bug in those that you're referring to? I've 2 6666v2 and I've found no issues with mine but maybe I just haven't discovered what it is yet.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
