President sent me a demo unit to test out - It's a solid little SSB radio, similar to the Uniden 980 in features however I actually like the layout better on this radio. The variable power is nice and on AM low will do 1 watt swinging 10 watts which is perfect for matching up with a KL203. SSB is about 12-15. I saw a bells video where it showed over 25W AM but I didn't see numbers like that. As Mike mentioned in his video review the roger beep doesn't work - I talked with President and there is no immediate fix for that but they are working on the issue. Talkback is ok - definitely not as good as a separate talk back board. Uniden 980 didn't fit in my dash as a DIN size radio - this one actually fit properly and the front firing speaker works great when dash mounted. Made lots of west coast contacts so far - good reports - with stock mike it has clear audio but not overpowering. Frequency stability is great so far, no issues. Receiver is good and the speaker does a good job, nice sound. At $199, price is a bit high but they are offering that $50 rebate. After testing both the 980 and McKinley at this point I'd be leaning towards the McKinley as my daily radio if I had to choose between the two. We'll see how it holds up with more testing over the next couple of months.
