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...

Thanks for the help. I had a lot of questions because I built my headache rack with one of the major purposes being to mount my antenna on it. This rack was mostly designed and built at the same time, so I built, then redesigned, etc, to see what worked and what wouldn't. Today was a case in point. Thanks for helping me in my "designing" and ensuring I got what would work, saving me from some frustration later on.
Greetings, I received my CB antenna today. It is in great shape and well packaged. Thanks Much for your excellent customer care. It has been a pleasure to do business with you. You will hear from me again Have a GOOD DAY, CJ,

Dear Jason, Thanks so much for your intelligent, well written e-mail that very precisely answered my questions. I have not had much luck getting such down here. Thanks. J Yocum

I do a good bit of buying online, as it appears that I can save so much money. I have been faithful to a competitor of yours, but they were out of stock and I turned to you for a try. To be honest, if I have my order by this weekend, not only will I be very impressed, I will become YOUR newest faithful customer. Besides, the previous vendors' shipping department left a whole lot to be desired. Thanking you in advance, and thanks for doing a great job - I appreciate that. Rob
