The new DX 2517 Base Radio replaces the DX 11B. However, it is not simply an upgraded DX 11B. The DX 2517 does not have the familiar main PC board used in the DX 11B and all of our mobile radios. This is the first model using the next generation main board. A great choice for 10 meter SSB use without breaking the bank.

Output transistors (finals) are not covered under warranty. It is your responsibility to check your SWR reading every time you use your radio. Failure to ensure a properly functioning antenna system WILL damage this radio. If you transmit with a faulty antenna system, you may see smoke and your radio will no longer transmit. If this occurs, you are responsible for all repairs, parts, and shipping fees to repair your radio. Please, do not allow this to happen and always check your SWR.
