5.0 The Best RX i've ever had
Review 74 by : natas57, 3-Apr-2003
I own a Ranger 2970 (with the built-in amp) since 1998, after having trouble with transmitted audio due to the PA,It works really nice. I compared it with : ss3900,P.Jackson,P.George,Ts570 - same ant manually switched to avoid losses in a selector - The result is that with the Ranger I can copy the stations I can't even hear with other rigs, even the TS-570 has been beaten , the ranger picks up less backgrund noise. So, now you know... it can be a very deceiving rig because you need a more power to work all the DX you can hear ! I would really like to test the new"DX" wersions (2950DX)
Pros: excellent RX
Cons: TX could be clearer and more powerful
Time owned: Over two years - Price: 300

4.0 ranger dx 2950
Review 117 by : 29 india whiskey 66, Brendan, Dublin Ireland 23-Apr-2007
I own a dx 2950 and I kinda like it. It took some time to pair it with my Zetagi 400 watt burner but with lowering the tx pwr and mic gain I got there.My big true gripe is the background noise on ssb. NB and ANL buttons are not effective and it sounds like FM. I can barely use the set when in the city and often revert back to the much quieter Lincoln. Its the only thing that will make me stop using the ranger and I'm nearly at that point.
Pros: great tx and easy to use
Cons: ssb is like fm for noise. terrible rx
Time owned: Less than 3 months - Price: E255 new, a complete bargain
