Reviews Summary for RANGER RCI 2970N2
RANGER RCI 2970N2 Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $$429.99
Description: Ranger Communications once again sets the performance and
reliability standard for entry level amateur mobile
transceivers with the latest generation of our popular RCI-
2950DX/70 series of cost effective, multi mode, high
performance transceivers.

Introducing the new RCI-2950DX & RCI-2970N2. These new
models feature microprocessor control of not one but two
amateur bands. The new RCI-2950DX, rated at 25W PEP and the
RCI-2970N2, rated at 200W PEP are 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 models have retained the operating features of its
popular predecessors, 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 units
offer three methods of frequency selection, non-volatile
memory to store and scan up to ten favorite frequencies, and
front panel frequency selector lockout.
Product is in production.

GREAT RADIO FOR THE PRICE  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I wanted to get back on 10 Meters and did not have the money to buy a full line HF rig. I decided to buy the Ranger RCI 2970N2. The transceiver has 200 watt output and a great receiver. I know a lot of CBer's buy this rig due to it is easy to modify for 11 meters. A matter a fact mine came from the dealer all ready modified. I have made contacts from all over the world. Being a TECH., I am having a blast. I would highly recommend this rig to anyone who wants a 200 watt rig with 10 & 12 meters. The only thing I do not like about the transceiver is the up and down buttons on the mic is one the side of the mic. I have accidentally changed frequency while transmitting. Other then that I love the rig for 10 meters. Oh yea also the RCI2970NZ has a very large heat sink and additional two fans to keep it cool.
