It helps a little bit but not the list dealers are preprograming the ss9900 to. cheers

New on Version 4: On version 4 you have also band K (24.885 - 25.365 MHz) and band L (25.375 - 25.605 MHz) The radio can also be supplied "expanded" for use on 10m & 11m and covers approx 25-30MHz in this mode. When expanded the output power is selectable from 4W/10W/40W on FM and 4W/10W on AM.

Pop over to our mate Del's he's got the perfect chart for you there. You'll notice there are some anomalies in the frequencies for historic reasons. Whilst I'm no fan of the freebander crowd, at least I can concede to the fact they actually buy some decent gear at times - vs the endless cycle of fake-retro con stuff fed to the CB market. Hell, one example alone will give you two 'CB' segments and PMR446 TxRx capability in one box plus a lot in between you'd more likely listen to out of curiosity, like coastguard and maritime VHF and in one instance, full VHF aviation coverage.

High power mobile & desktop transceiver for the 28 MHz or expanded 25-30 MHz band. Up-to 15W AM, 45W FM and 60Watts SSB. CTCSS / DCS selective calling, scan, echo function, SWR protection, PC programmable.Controls are kept to a minimum on the radio, but through the various menu options you can make many adjustments to the radio to optimise it's performance. These are the circumstances around me here in cambridge, im sure mileage may vary in differing area's. On a weekly basis, there is around 12 of us that use ukfm for a chinwag, 5 of those 12 are less than 30, of the remaining the eldest is retired, us others are between 40 and 48. Power / Signal Strength / SWR indication + Numéric indication for SWR value + Power supply DC displaying

I will probaly us it mainly FM when in convoy with others so low power but will hopefully try some DX on SSB. I am actually in the situation that I try to choose between 9900 and 6900N (ver. 6) . If I understand correct I would not actually want to run any of the radio`s on max,the only difference is looks (maybe an outside usb on the 9900?),and the ctcss/dcs in the 9900 and not in 6900N..(?) The weird thing is that at the moment I could get the 9900 a bit cheeper than the 6900N,but what bothers me a bit is that I like the looks of the 6900N the best.. I think. Which is best.. Bands G-L on your radio are allocated to the 12 & 10 meter Ham bands unless licenced you can't use them anyway. They are not on the list because its a list of the most commonly used 11 meter frequencies. To be honest the only ones you are likely to find C.B. activity are The Mid band 26965 - 27405. The Uk40 2760125 - 2799125 and the High band 27415 - 27855. The SSB calling channel is 27555. Call then QSY up or down a bit. Just for info the "High band" is outside of the legal U.K. C.B. allocation but very commonly used anyway.I see your point now the only one missing off mine off that list is band A Super Super low band so I will program that over one of the 11/12m bands , cheers The channel display is a blue LED, rather than the more common LCD display. This has the advantage that it can be viewed from any angle, whereas LCD displays become faint when viewed at some angles (particularly from below).

If your just rag chewing local or dx ing when its really going either will do a fine job and the better receive of the lincoln you probaby wont notice. How does the power adjust? Is it seperate adjustment for each modes? So run at max on SSB and low on FM/AM I guess is the best thing to do. Now do i think that CRT is a carp company ? Well given that my one radio is sounding like this its easy to spout on about how they make carp and dont buy one. Its easy to say crt are turning out rubbish, its easy to say crt are damaging their profits and reputation. I wont however, because the dealer and hats of to them identified the issue on their radios' and im very greatful that they replaced it with a CRT 9900. This CRT 9900 does not suffer from the same issue and is in fact a great little radio.I find the SSB RX audio cleaner on the 6666 than on the 135. To me the 135 sounded a little raspy. I say "sounded" as I had both radio's at the same time and decided to sell one of them. I personally thought the CRT 9900 (same as 6666) was the better radio so the 135 went. The 6666 feels like a more solidly built radio too. Here is a link of my first CRT radio with what i can only describe as someone keying up next to a tractor engine right on 27.555, the video sound doesnt do the problem justice to be fair it was worse when trying to listen with it.
