This is a great radio like all Rangers they need to be properly tuned and aligned they do not come from the factory set up properly and Copper Electronics for all that they are good at.
One of the things they are not very good at is peeking and tuning a extremely high performance radio like this. That's why your radio did not perform well.
To Mike Roda above, These Radios like any other drift with temp change. In winter when I shut down my warm truck 75 / 85 Degs it is dead on freq from a stable temp, the next day it is off till truck warms up... be it AM/FM,Sideband all need a steady temp to lock on freq. In constant summer temps I have no problem with this radio staying on freq, unless I turn on the AC then i need to retune due to temp drop.
To Everyone Else, I am in Ohio and believe me when I say this radio has the power to talk all over. I had it Aligned,Tuned and a Top Gun Modulator Kit installed. I have talked to England.UK, and Hawaii from my truck on 10 meter and Honolulu Hawaii on 11 no problem. I use a Stainless Steel Whip, ball and spring setup. When I get the cash saved up I may buy another for a base setup.

Sorry to say this but this is an extremely over priced radio. I had high hopes for this radio, I had a Ranger 2750 in the past it was a much better radio. I bought this from Copper had it tuned up. It is constantly drifting from the chosen frequency. It just cannot stay centered on frequency. It probably isn't real noticeable on AM but for side-band work it would be terrible. I also have a Superstar radio it is by far superior to this radio. I feel that other than the really shiny chrome face plate in which the red writing is nearly impossible to read. This radio is way over priced and rated.
