    The newer edition are a lot easier to read the LCD compared to the older models I have a pristine 2005 model which I bought in
    The USA brand new still works great

    No, it is the same radio with another flavor PA attached.
    Just like the D6 is the same radio with different output devices.
    Ranger has been doing this for a while with the 6900 series radios as well.

    Just bought the dx6. Seems to be a good radio. Nothing but compliments so far. Figured I'd try it. Its pushing my straight 4 pill. Wanted a little more power than the 2950. N2 and n4 were to high for what I want to do ....

    I've got an old school RCI 2950, orange display, I love it, and it's got some sentimental value to. It's the very first radio I ever bought, I pinched pennies a saved enough to buy the radio and a Antron 99. After I get my Madison base back from LC, I would like to have him recap and align my 2950, I bought it in the early 90s it's due

    Wish I would've held on to my 2950dx with the black/green screen.. liked the looks of that style better than the new CD model.

    It has a bigger heat sink on the back than the regular 2950. I'm using a fatboy straight 4 pill. It's a bit hashy as rangers are. But all and all good.
