Now shipping! The Optima MK2 compact mobile 10 and 12 meter HAM transceiver. Complete with popular features and modes for HF use. Perfect mobile radio for skip conditions.

The optima is designed to provide years of enjoyment and trouble-free service. There are many features and functions designed into this transceiver.

The OPTIMA is a 50w all mode microprocessor controlled, user programmable radio combining high RF performance with a user-friendly environment. The transceiver utilizes the latest in surface mount production techniques. This keeps the size of the unit to a minimum without sacrificing any of the advanced circuits required for today's high performance radios, and as cabin space diminishes in modern vehicles, this concept helps create a wider variety of installation options. Although engineered with mobile use in mind, the OPTIMA, with the addition of a high quality 10-amp power supply, may be easily adapted for fixed station operation.

Some of the features of the OPTIMA are; an advanced design liquid crystal display that provides the operator with a full visual account of the transceivers operating status, automatic frequency or memory scanning, memory storage of your favorite frequencies and modes, programmable frequency resolution of either 1kHz, 5kHz, 10 kHZ, 100 kHz, and 1 MHz, and split frequency operation for repeater use.

A second filter has been added to the IF chain and this can be switched in or out from the front panel as required. The 8 pin microphone plug is compatible with most icom microphones and base microphones can be easily rewired to suit the OPTIMA. These are just a few of the features that make the OPTIMA a pleasure to own and operate.

What Customers are Saying...

Hi, I ordered a 3 1/2'' internal speaker for my CB. I ordered it on 6/9/08 and it was at my door yesterday 6/11/08. I'd like to compliment you on your speediness! I put the speaker in my (old and out of production RCI 2900) and it works fine. Again, thanks and I'll be back to buy more.

Anytime that I need accessories for my CB, I always check WalcottCB first. I'm a licensed HAM radio operator, and finding good accessories for my Galaxy DX 2517 Base station is really hard. So I Googled to find any retail store that had what I needed, and WalcottCB was the only store that had exactly what I needed. I send my thanks to the founder of WalcottCB and have a few words. Do not change a thing, your website has helped me stay in the expensive game of DX radios, I really appreciate your hard work and your excellent customer service. If I had the power to commend you and your business, beleive me I would.
