RANGER RCI-2950

HAM TO CB MODE MODIFICATION

Very often, the RCI is sold as a HAM rig. But it was designed and developped on CB principals. All the experts will tell you that the RCI contains the same components as all major CB TXs. So what ? Is it a CB or a HAM tranceiver ?

The short reply is : BOTH. The RCI developing team thought it ham AND CB. The microcontroler board has the capabilities of indicating channels or frequencies. The channel mode has just been inactivated by a jumper. Let's get a rid of this limitation.

The jumper is located on the LCD board. On the left side of this board, around the components R626 and RA610, you cannot miss the jumper. Take it off and place it in the other position. You have just activated the channel mode. The " Lock " key will control whether you are in channel mode or in frequency mode.

A CHANNEL 9 EMERGENCY KEY ?

Yes, you have one in you RCI. In the same way you modified the previous jumper, you will find a second jumper on the RIGHT side of the LDC board . Take it off and place it in the other position. You have just enabled a channel 9 emergency key. This key is now the old " R-Beep ". Yeah... _ Who said that the RCI was not a CB rig ?
