Introducing the new RCI-2950DX & RCI-2970N2. These new models feature microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new RCI-2950DX, 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.
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.
In addition, the Series offers an impressive array of design and performance improvements:
—An improved receiver:designed for increased sensitivity and image rejections.
—A double FET balanced mixer:for improved receiver intermodulation rejection.
—New power supply protection:and temperature compensation for improved stability and reliability over wide temperature ranges.
—Surface mount components:for increased resistance to shock and vibration.
—Improved display lighting:for easy reading in a wide range of light conditions.
—Variable Power Outputfrom2 watts to 25 watts (RCI-2950DX)
