    Anyone on the forum using one of these radios I need the lowdown as I'm considering buying one , I've seen some for sale on Amazon but have been advised not to buy as they CB be cheap copies better to go to a Stryker dealer , basically I like the output power and the layout of the radio

    That's a much better choice I think, what shop is it? Do they have a web site?

    I have one and they have a glitch when using an external speaker talk back comes out of it on TX when TB is turned off I posted a fix for this in the forums. Other than that I like the radio only wish it had up and down CH on mic or front panel buttons.

    I have a Stryker SR655, which is the 955 minus SSB.

    Careful who you get one from. Some CB shops will get in the radio to make "improvements" before they put it on the shelf. Mine is currently sitting on the top bunk of my truck, until I have the time and inclination to undo the "improvements".

    Run the "Hi-Cut" filter 99.9% of the time with a big external speaker. Works like a charm. Bye bye hissssssssss.

    The receive is just very sensitive on the 955. This is the only radio I have ever used the rf gain on. If you bump the gain down a notch, it will be quieter and you still won't miss anything
