Review 88 by : Theodore, Genoa NY USA 20-Apr-2004
The president lincoln is the best radio i have ever owned. it has been converted for 27 megs. the radio has been a real joy to run. this radio was bought new in april of 2000. it has never failed or needed to be repaired at any time. one thing has been changed, the stock mic was replaced, but still works fine. it was replaced with a kenwood 43s mic. with this setup it talks smooth and has outstanding auidio. this radio can be chip switched to add many more functions.split frecquencys and repeater tones..what more could you ask for.
Pros: Needs Nothing, It is top shelf
Cons: People assume that that it is less than what it is
Time owned: Over two years - Price: NEW/ 2000 / $350.OO/ USA.
This is the best HF/CB radio I've owned.
Review 94 by : Dave, Portland, OR, USA 26-Jan-2005
I have owned a President Lincoln since 1992. This radio has been in many vehicles and has handled the rough ride for almost 13 years. That is a good track record for a radio. There are a few things this needs (without a chipswitch) like duplex, (split freq.) the channel up/down buttons need the same function as the VFO, a CTCSS and a 1/8" phono jack for ext. spkr. For what I use this radio for it is all I'll ever need. It is rugged, dependable and with an amplified microphone, it is a great sounding radio.
I just purchased another President Lincoln recently.
Pros: Rugged, basic, simple to use, multi-purpose, small, var. power, scan.
Cons: No: duplex, 1/8
Time owned: Over two years - Price: New, 300 USD
Review 96 by : dale london, espyville, pa us 14-May-2005
i used my friends president while his antenna was broken by a storm . i loved it no toys in it not alot of knobs that could look overwhelming to a beginner just a simple radio.too manythese days have alot of junk in them i dont wanna spend 300 on a radio with junk in it . half the time those radios are terrible on ssb. other radios are am/fm only with a buch of other junk in it and they want 300.00 for it. with the lincoln you get a REAL radio not just a toy. id trade my 2970 for one any day
Pros: excellent recieve , auto squelch excellen feature,excellent ssb stability
Time owned: Less than 3 months - Price: new
Good rig - needs a bit more to be excellent!!
Review 75 by : 26tsw282, Doug Slade, Lancashire/England 25-Apr-2003
Several memders of the TSW DX club tested the President lincoln and basicaly came up with the same conclusion.
It is a very good piece of kit, however, there are a few bits to sort out. As listed in the pros and cons.
Mainly, a variable ssb rf gain to be able to estimate the watts going into a RF amplifier.
Also, those switches on the mike should be able to change between channel and frequency (sweeping)!
Pros: Frequency readout, rf gain, mic gain, on/off roger beep, up/down on mike.
Cons: No ssb rf gain, only 2 mike gain settings, up/down channel only.
Time owned: Over one year - Price: £120 Used 2003
Crispy clear audio receiver
Review 80 by : JZ 09 DLC, Budi Pranoto, Jakarta, Indonesia 3-Nov-2003
i happened find this rig at a small electronic shop in Delfzijl, Holland,
during my visit last July. actually,
this rig is for 28-29 mhz(four band with 170 cannel), since i was looking for a cb radio, they assured me that with a little mod,i can use it for 27 mhz, cb channel. And it's true! I got 9 bands with 240 channel
from 26.000 mhz to 29.990 mhz. It's easy to
work with its fungtion. And the best of it, this rig has clear audio receive.
Pros: Good and clear receive, especially with the autosquelch
Cons: only two mode rf gain receive
Time owned: Less than 3 months - Price: new, 300 euro
REAL GOOD ALL AROUND MOBILE
Review 95 by : 505, RICHARD BURSAW, PORTLAND USA 16-Mar-2005
I PURCHASED THIS RADIO NEW IN YEAR 1999 AND CONVERITED WITH A CHIP SWITCH WELL WORTH THE MONEY NOW GOES FROM 24.500-29.999 MHZ. ALL THE OTHER 10 METER RADIOS I HAVE SEEN DO NOT HAVE A VFO LIKE THE LINCOLN IN MY OPINIAN NO OTHER RADIO BEETS IT. THE BAD THING THE OLDER LINCOLNS HAVE THE OLD MRF-477 FINALS LOW POWER THE NEWER RADIOS HAVE THE MRF-455 RATED AT 60 WATTS THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THE OLDER LINCOLNS A RADIO TECH WONT CHANGE OUT THE FINAL FOR THE HIGH OUTPUT ONE DUE TO MAKING A NEW BOARD. ALL IN ALL VERY GOOD RADIO LOOKS NICE TOO.
Pros: BUILT IN VFO
Cons: LOW OUT PUT POWER
Time owned: Over two years - Price: 289.00 NEW

I have bourgh my president lincoln by a famours actor, so there are luck whit my dx`in controlled mode. I have turn down the RF-Power on the SSB inside, so, I can use my Zetagi B47, PEP max. SSB 100 Watt / AM/FM 50 Watt, max input 4 Watt. I had get many radiocontacts whit people in Europa, and who knows som day mabye dx´in inside Asia. This is the best tranciver i never had, thank to "Filipinerne" for making this increidble radio set-up system.
