01-04-2013, 11:20 PM
hello everyone iam looking for some radio suggestions in the past I have had Genera and connex radios which I loved for the echo/time features and now I see they have a general 40W and some nice Galaxy radios in the 10M also but then again i have seen a forum member here out of Maine with a nice description of his Galaxy 959 which im leaning towards but I very seldom go above or below the 11M bands but I want to stay with something i like which is the echo/time and the power of the connex radios also in the Volvo I will be installing a bird perch with 18' of terminal coax and leaning towards my old wilson 5K or a Predator 10K

I would rather run low power radio and separate amp. Those high power radio heat up to fast and built in cooling fans are junk. You can get more power but will cost more with componets like a stereo. Those high power radio once peaked and tuned always seem to heat up to much and blow up or have reduced life spans. Also what power range are you looking for 300-500 watts or 10 kilowatts? Then can give you some idea's also do you talk ssb also and want a stable radio for that? ALSO BASE OR MOBILE, WOULD ASSUME MOBILE BY THE ANTENNA YOU MENTIONED?

Check out some of the Stryker radio's, I think they'll have something you'll like.
