    Anytone 6666 is a very small SSB radio

    I don't have 20 minutes to spend waiting to find ....

    .... Nothing ...

    That is not already available in smaller segments on both YT and elsewhere...and as if not better than, this production - the "edits" are hilarious....

    I remember it like this:

    If your TX frequency doesn't change when the clarifier is adjusted, it's "locked" on frequency.

    If it does change when the clarifier is adjusted, it's been "unlocked."

    Simple, and seems to fit with how most people use the terms.

    I'm of the thought that unless you're authoring a novel who really cares? I know I don't (obviously.) LOL

    LMFAO!! OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN!! MY ADVICE TO THIS GUY WOULD BE TO TAKE A PERMANENT VACATION. AT LEAST FROM EVER PUTTING YOUR HANDS INSIDE OF A TRANSCEIVER OF ANY TYPE, EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN!!! DID YOU HEAR THAT SSB DEMONSTRATION? WTF WAS THAT!?!

    I can't remember with the OP was going to get now?
    It went from opening up a clarifier to slamming Snake again.
    I just wonder how many threads does it take to slam this guy?
    Sorry OP now I'm off.

    Facts outweigh opinions... those are pretty strong words coming from someone who has never shown us anything. However, the student is like the teacher I guess, for he's never shown us anything or proven anything that he claims.




    Oh yes they are on "cheat-sheet" level, I believe that video clearly shows him flashing a piece of paper with it all written down. Of course, that could all be BS on his part and mean absolutely nothing but there is clearly a sheet there...

    What you're talking about there is that he adds parts to current production parts to reach a specific value other than what's installed. Why not just change the part totally to the desired value? So you're saying when I get a radio from him, it'll look like some cobbled together POS with extra crap soldered onto parts from the factory? Sure sounds like it. Why doesn't he just build his own radios? Why can't the folks designing and building these radios get it right and why is he the only person in the world that seems to know they're wrong?

    Worthless to write a sheet yet he has. And others have, they're all over the net, go look. And yet they yield the same results on dozens of thousands of radios but we're supposed to believe that no two Stryker or Anyone radios are the same out the box? So if I buy two of the same brand and model, swap out one or more parts identical in both radios, both will give a different amount of power or whatever.. a total different amount and won't be anywhere near each other because they're "different".... BS

    True HF rigs? Neither can your "man". It's absolutely impossible to make any black box radio perform like a freaking Kenwood, Yaesu or Icom... are you seriously that retarded and delusional on that koolaid?

    He sure won't be able to send it to your man because he doesn't take mail-in work, cause he can't. He can't actually fix a radio needing repair, he's not a repair guy but a parts-swapper. That's why you have to buy his recommended radios, new from him. He starts off with better radios than most others, like comparing an F40 Ferrari to a Ford Pinto... and then claiming how fast he made the car that was already fast... just stupid.

    I've got to say, I've read some pretty stupid stuff on the internet and seen some too but that takes the cake I believe. 20% tolerances on parts and every radio cranked out is different and won't respond the same to the same modification or parts swapping...haha. Somebody out in the desert is building NASA level radios, son. Got this new Stryker 955, momma, better strap little Johnny in, I key this thing and we're liable to time-warp or something.

    You're gonna have to show me, my Delorean does NOT time travel at 88mph. It does good to get to 88mph...

    It will look untouched and you will have a difficult time locating any non factory components.

    You are partially correct. A textbook tech following a service manual won't get you anywhere close. My AT-6666 easily outperforms an Icom 7000 on 11 meters.
    It's kinda funny how the folks that disregard the laws of physics make fun of the one guy who configured his bench with those laws in mind. If you'd like to learn something from an authority on the subject you should read this manual. It contains critical information that you and your friends conveniently ignore regarding how to set up a proper RF test bench.

    You can scream "facts", "logic", and "truth" all you want but that doesn't change anything.

    At the end of the day, Mark is changing parts and doing an alignment.

    Congratulations for him, he can work with SMT.
    So can any modern electronics technician who works in component level repair.
    Will the radio perform nicely, sure it will.
    Will it look like it came from the back of a flying-J, no it will look nice.
    But not $900 nice, and certainly not with any "Nasa grade" results.
    I've got to ask, with all that NIST certified gear in the back of the motorhome, does he get the gear recalibrated after driving down bumpy roads?

    All that fancy equipment, just getting thrashed around in the back compartment of a winnebago, lmao.

    I bet you 5 million dollars to a doughnut hole that I could take that radio and find what was changed. You’re trying to tell me that I couldn’t take a factory schematic and compare it to the radio and tell what was changed? Hogwash. And you clearly said “added” not “changed”, reread what you said, it’s your own words.

    You will have to show me and prove to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that your Anytone will outperform any Icom. That’s a freaking $125 wholesale radio straight from Anytone, no way it can do that out the box and I absolutely do not believe your radio man can do that. Not him or anyone else.

    A “bench” is the top of that work surface, usually made of wood and you can’t calibrate wood. You can sand the hell out of it and make it nice and smooth but you’ll be one more bad mofo when you can calibrate wood. Please show us all how this wood calibration is done, my little girls play set outside needs some calibration.

    All that NIST crap is just that, crap. A calibration is no better than what’s calibrating it or who is doing the calibration. It’s no more traceable than a hot fart in a hurricane is. I think the two of you should read up on just what calibration is and how it’s done. All that malarkey about how long the coax is from one piece of gear to the next is laughable at best. You’re hoodwinked, red pilled and punch drunk on koolaid but most of us here aren’t.

    Most importantly we’re talking about radios used for 27mhz. You can Jesus tune your radio if you want to but in the end, the real Jesus determines how far you talk. Conditions make up more of your luck with your nitrous injected, turbo-tuned Anytone than your tech.
