Ranger RCIDX Amateur 6 Meter Mobile Radio from Ranger Communications
For those field trip contests, DXpeditions, public safety activities, or group gatherings, the PA feature is just the answer to coordinating efforts with the group and getting dx1000 attention. I am really impressed with the company and ordered directly from Ranger-USA. These low pass filter coils looked so perfect all turns close spaced I said to myself “they forgot to adjust the low pass filters for best match”. I contacted Ranger service by email asking dz100 should I do they have never replied to my email request!

First of all, they can dump the roger beep since there is really no need for it. This is nothing but a modified export CB radio made to cover 6m. The backlighting design is poor overall. The rig I obtained came with a white on blue display, which really looks great! Now you can upgrade your mobile Ham capabilities with a radio that is rich dx1100 features and at a reasonable cost.
Other than that It is a good performer for the cost. I have also made many contacts mostly over the western half of the country and Canada because of my location.

Contact the site with comments or questions. They offered to check it out if I sent it in with about a 2 week turn-a-round time. Even includes a Roger beep! There is no support from Ranger as far as ordering parts. Current Draw at full power.

I was thinking that it wasn’t going to work worth a hoot 5045 hooking it up, I made several contacts that said the audio was good and the signal was nice and strong.
A tone board would be nice, but for what I do, mostly simplex SSB on dx00, it is not extremely necessary. I asked if they could just send me a new model but they declined.
My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. Having worked in Heathkit service on Amateur radio equipment I know things just happen I heard that the parts division was sold to a third party. Trying out the RCIDX I had to look at the picture of it on the operating manual to tell what button I was pressing and what it did because the buttons that are on a rubber like strip were installed upside down AND Backwards.
These are commonly adjusted at the factory by spreading or compressing the coils using an insulated plastic tool. It just plugs into a module. Next was the low output.
So I just said the heck with it and kept it even though it has this intermediate problem. It meets specs as far as receive sensitivity and RF power output, but boy you should see the signal on the spectrum analyzer!
I think it holds a whole 10 whopping 5504 Before you buy, make sure you get a later model so you hopefully won’t have the backlight problem. Taking it out of the box I find the buttons on front all had the writing on them upside down I laughed about this!

Inside it looks like CB radio technology from the ‘s.
