Modding my Maycom and then realising there are no side bands (Doh!) has spurred me into buying one of these Anytone AT-5555 10m Radios – (A.K.A. The SuperStar SS6900 – amongst other names and model numbers).
A friend of mine (M3NFA) actually owns one of these Anytone’s and we recently installed a dedicated modified GP27 CB antenna for him. His first contact after the antenna install was to Athens, Greece and the signal and audio reports were fantastic. My AT-5555 should hopefully be here today along with a nice new 15Amp PSU to back up it’s top whack 40w grunt (which I’m not allowed to use – being an M6 and limited to 10 watts on the Ham Bands).
By the weekend I hope to be up and running with a dedicated (homemade) 10m antenna kindly donated to me by my friend G4ZTD, a nice new AT-5555 and a bigger PSU with more grunt
I’ve had everything shipped out with the quickest possible shipping options and I’m hoping my PSU and Radio both arrive today.
All that remains to be said now is…… hurry up postie!!!!!!
