    No not yet,

    Got the Flyer though...

    Looks to be backwards compatible with 11 meter (or 10M? (y) Depending upon Perspective ) - complete with "THE KNOB"...

    Both - Inner and Outer Concentric!

    Kinda' like a Saturn - with an extra column of buttons.

    But its' got...

    'DAH - KNOB!

    Even the flyer, when you search for the site...

    Click Here, the ECHO feature is only mentioned in passing further down

    It's buried in the manual. e.g. - They wanted to appeal to 10 Meter crowd as a viable radio and 11 Meter crowd with some "undocumented Featurette's"

    Good luck to those that wish to use the Clarifier - just make sure it's rt mode and shows "2" in the display.

    Yes... it's menu programmable - but at least most of the functions are still analog...(Clarifier is encoder type not linear so it's a STEP function)

    TRUCK DRIVERS - Please note: Side Mounted Microphone Jack

    Sigh...

    As it' is written, so let it be done...

    Wow...

    The Top Gun website says that it doesn't need the CP-1 because the audio is "superb".
    Undertaker, we will need a full report to confirm this. I was looking at the President Lincoln 2+ but now I don't know. LOL
    This is what it says about the MD-1:

    MD-1 Modulator
    Now the same Top Gun Modulator MD-1 and Compressor CP-1 circuits used in the new Magnum radios are available for most other 10-meter and many CB radios. Full tone, clear, high swing audio (AM) modulation is achieved with the addition of these two fully assembled micro circuit boards. While the Top Gun Modulator works only in AM, the Top Gun Compressor works in AM, FM, and SSB keeping the modulation at peak performance in all these modes.
