Ranger Communications once again sets the performance and reliability standard for entry level amateur mobile transceivers with the latest generation of our popular RCI-2950/70 series of cost effective, multi mode, high performance transceivers.

Introducing the new RCI-2950 & RCI-2970N2. These new models feature microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new RCI-2950, 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.

Always a popular single sideband radio, 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.

What Customers are Saying...

I recently ordered a mic from you. The process was very simple. You had what I wanted. I recieved my order VERY quickly. I am a ham operator and have shopped most of the major dealers and no one has handled my request as fast as you did and at a reasonable price.This is all mentioned as my needs sometime become quite expensive. To cut to the chase, I will shop you first from now on for my radio needs
-- Billy W.
Hello, I recently placed and received an order for a Wilson 2 meter antenna and a radio mounting bracket. Just wanted to say thanks. Order was shipped fast, and VERY well packed with super fast shipment. Nice job and my compliments
-- John G.
I recently purchased a Cobra29LTDBC, with the peak and tune option, Echo installed, and a turner RK56 mic...All I can say is "FANTASTIC JOB"....This radio get's the job done, It walks the walk, and talks the talk with the big boys!!!! Now if it's not much trouble I would like a quote on a Galaxy DX2547 base, with the TRB1 digital echo board installed, and a Astatic AST878DM wired for this radio, and shipped to 28617 zip code. Thanks Thomas Howard
-- Thomas H.
Thanks for the help, I will let my fellow Jeepers and C.B.'ers know what great customer service you have! Mike
