The McKinley II is the first FCC approved CB radio that offers AM/SSB and the new mode - FM! You can finally get a radio that can cover them all.
The original President McKinley CB has been a hit with people wanting a rugged radio with SSB, and now the limited edition McKinley II FM takes it up a notch. This is the first CB radio approved by the FCC with AM, FM, LSB, and USB operating modes. This new version also upgrades the LCD display to include 7 colors, as well as adding a scan skip, and the ability to switch between electret and dynamic microphone types. They won't be around forever, so get one now before they're gone.
In 2021 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided to approve the change to allow use of FM (frequency modulation) on CB radio frequencies for the first time. Already popular abroad, FM provides superior audio quality compared to AM. FM signals are less prone to amplitude and electromagnetic interference, resulting in clearer and more consistent sound.
