Ranger (RCI-2970N4) - AM/FM/USB/LSB/CW/PA, Black


Ranger Communications once again sets the performance and reliability standard for entry level amateur mobile transceivers with the latest generation of their popular RCI-2970N4.

Introducing the new RCI-2970N4: This new model feature microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new RCI-2970N4, rated at 400W PEP, is perfect for the recent band openings on 10 and 12 meters. Now you can upgrade your mobile Ham capabilities with a radio that is rich in features and reasonable in cost.

The new model has retained the operating features of its popular predecessor, including programmable repeater offset and capabilities for a CTCSS tone option -- great for increasing repeater activity on 10 meters -- and receiver scanning for quick search of active frequencies. The unit offers three methods of frequency selection, non-volatile memory to store and scan up to ten favorite frequencies, and front panel frequency selector lockout.

In addition, the RCI-2970N4 offers an impressive array of design and performance improvements:

  • An improved receiver: designed for increased sensitivity and image rejections
  • A double FET balanced mixer: for improved receiver intermodulation rejection.
  • New power supply protection: and temperature compensation for improved stability and reliability over wide temperature ranges.
  • Surface mount components: for increased resistance to shock and vibration.
  • Improved display lighting: for easy reading in a wide range of light conditions.
  • Variable Power Output up to 400 watts (RCI-2970N4).

For use of the RCI-2970N4 in a base station application, Ranger recommends at minimum a 60 Amp power supply.
