RCI 2950s and RCI 2970s have always set the industry standard for being simply put the best SSB rigs in this market. Hands down, serious SSBers have enjoyed these chassis since they have come out. True the earliest designs needed to be upgraded, and RCI has always come through and done just that. There has been many revisions of the RCI 2950, 2970 2950DX, and 2970DX.
The RCI 2970N2 is a new upgraded 2970DX. It is refreshing to see that RCI Ranger has kept its best selling radios, and only made them better. Keep in mind these upgrades are all over the board as all radios in the future will have improved "fet" transistors.
If your thinking about getting a amplified SSB mobile SSB rig, then look no place else. Considered to be the top of the line the 2970N2 will not disappoint. SuperWackPacked 2970N2s talk great. Not just on SSB, not just on AM, but both modes will work awesome after we redesign this radio. The radios are SMT meaning to the laymen the parts are tiny inside the chassis. Throughout the years shade tree techs have ruined these Ranger chassis by mistuning them, poor alignments, and a lack of passion for these awesome radios. However don't let SMT parts or shade trees guys scare you, we specialize in these radios, and love redesigning them down to the smallest of parts.
These radios benefit from mods such as the exclusive SuperWackPack. Our own upgrades to the transmit section that give you clean, loud, and reliable performance. This radio will give you some massive clean avg talk power, that simply outtalks the others. SuperRx helps greatly on the receive side of things, and we have a few secrets that we do at the same time improving the RX even more. Open clarifiers are a must for most serious ssb users so consider it. Stock mics are never good on even the best of radios. However let us add up/down channel buttons to a new astatic 636L, or RK 56 for you! Some add echo/reverb, or variable talkback to make them their own. Radio comes with am/fm/usb/lsb. NB/ANL, roger beep, and a nice big display with built in SWR meter. Whatever you choose, choosing RadioActive Radios to buy from is a wise choice. We've specialized in these radios since they first came out, and a hardcore 2970 fans to this day! When skip rolls in, and the sun spot cycle peaks, you'll be talking phat on a really BIG watt SuperWackPacked 2970N2.
