So far as far as TX audio local quality goes….
Rx to my ears only
SA 280 could rise up a bit with a tune up and backing off the ALC when I find which pot it is.
Cobra just aint worth a shit but I keep it on hand to let every one to steer clear of it!
One day there may be an easy fix for the audio but still have to fix the -/+5khz and a frequency display that gets out of whack when the clarifier is moved more than one or two khz.
FT817 hooked into a KL200 was also up the top in TX and Rx but has the additional SSB filters installed so hardly fair. Need to get some more CB’s to test…
AR3500 still sits on the top of the pile ..a position it has held for the past 20 years and not much around to knock it off it’s spot.
