I was trying to get a good radio 10/11m for use as a base radio only for my new bench. Will be running A99 for antenna, I may opt to run a TS350 kicker later on.. I have HF, VHF, UHF covered.. I was wondering opinions on the Galaxy 86v? Has variable power, pushes 50w or so on high. It runs about $250 at Bells.. if used as a base only it should be stable(r) on SSB I am guessing.. this would eliminate the kicker idea for awhile as well, hence spending a little more.. I also like switches. I don't want echo, beep, etc. If it's there fine. I want audio punch and SSB.. The Stryker 955 is too much $$ My last buying of a Cobra 148 ended badly so I'm turned off to EB for used stuff.. I was looking at a Uniden 122 for $100 though.. Other option is another McKinley which I use in my truck for $185, or a Uniden 980 for $115 which I am guessing is SSB stable as well.. The Lincoln 2 v3+ has not punch on AM so I've heard. The Anytone AT6666/v6 for $250 or AT5555/v6 maybe for $220?? Suggestions?? Like to stick to sub $200 if possible.
