    Mirage MX 86 HP. Anybody used one these late model radios? Not finding much on the net yet. Little info out there for the 36 HP AM only. Looks like a good small chassis radio with AM SSB, and channels......

    Not new.

    It's been out for awhile. It converts with an e-chip like the 29XX flavors.

    It's not a great radio by any means. I think Ranger just slaps some obsolete boards in them. Mirage is kinda like Ranger's budget line.

    I can't remember what board is in it.

    Music is equivalent to a toothache.
