The DX44HP is the updated version of the older DX44V. The biggest advantage to the new version is that they've doubled the power output. The 44HP now boasts 40+ watts modulation and 2-15 watts deadkey.
Like most newer radios they've also switched out all the green LED's and lights to blue. You also get a dimmer control so you can turn down the lights so they're not so hard on the eyes at night. They also cone with a built-in SWR meter so you can make sure your antenna system is tuned in. All in all, an excellent radio for not a lot of dough.
Dear Walcott, I received my order today, and I am very pleased at the professional attention you paid to my order, and order updates. I can't say exactly when, but I can assure you that I will use you in the future for all my cb equipment needs. Also, I'm planning on telling my fellow cb friends on how professional, a job you done. Thanks again, Eddie Hair. A.K.A. Moonshine-568-S.C.-- Eddie H.
Thank you Walcott !!! I tried to contact three other "so called distributors", I left each one an e- mail 5 days ago. No answer as of this a.m.. I called on the same day and left follow up messages. Mind you I'm the customer, But I need a radio. Still no calls or e-mails. So this morning I said I' ll call the Walcott number. they are a little more expensive than the chumps I called but I need my radio. The number rang and expecting disappoint, I heard a polite "Hello, Walcott Radio, how my I help you". Well, I flipped. The man introduced himself as Lamont. To make a long story short. Every question was answered, and I had alot. I haven't used a CB in 30 years. The best part I have a real radio guy helping me. I can't wait to get my new radio. No body on the planet can sell me a radio but My Man Lamont. Lamont, thank you so much for your professionalism, courtesy, and friendliness. George D. Smith-- George S.
I recieved The Texas Ranger TR-696FSSB yesterday, thank you the fast shipping and I am well pleased with the radio. Thank you again for the good service. Levirl Brokofsky-- Levirl B.
Just wanted to thank you for your service on this order. I received the replacement slip seat box and speaker, and also the correct size slip seat box cover earlier this week, in two shipments. The cover was the correct size this time (I sent the smaller one back with the supplied ground label), but more importantly, the replacement slip seat box and speaker were received in beautiful condition; while the first slip seat box was shipped in just the manufacturer's box, with no additional shipping box or material, and the speaker rattling around inside it, the second shipment was packed with bubble material in addition to an exterior shipping carton. Had the original shipment been packed in the same manner the replacement was, I'm sure there would have been no damage whatsoever. UPS came on 4/27 and picked up the original carton with the damaged slip seat box and speaker enclosed. Again, thank you for taking a personal interest in this oder and for resolving it so efficiently. I hope to do business with Walcott again, and will make an effort to stop in when I next get out to the Iowa 80 area. Sincerely, Doug Lyons-- Doug L.
