Ranger Communications once again sets the performance and reliability standard for entry level amateur mobile transceivers with the latest generation of our popular RCI-2970DX series of cost effective, multi mode, high performance transceivers.

Introducing the new RCI-2970N2. This new model features microprocessor control of not one but two amateur bands. The new 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 model has 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 unit offers 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, it 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 Output from 10 watts to 200 watts (

Base Station Application: 
For the RCI-2970N2, a recommended power supply is the Astron RS-50A or equivalent.

CAUTION: Please be aware some "switching power supplies" can generate noise that will get into the receiver.
