CB Magnum Raptor AM/FM 10 Meter mobile amateur transceiver

DUAL POWER 80 & 25 watts PEP

Magnum Raptor is a combination microprocessor and phase-lock loop (PLL) controlled radio combining both high RF performance with a user-friendly front panel. The Magnum Raptor is built rugged to withstand years of use in harsh mobile environments. Although engineered with mobile use in mind the Magnum Raptor, with the addition of a high quality 20 amp regulated power supply, may be easily adapted to fixed station operation.

IMPORTANT WARRANTY INFORMATION
PLEASE READ PRIOR TO OPERATION


•  Your Raptor  is  equipped with Magnum’s  exclusive  “Dual  Power”  system  for  ease  of  switching  between  80 wats PEP Hi power and 25 wats PEP  Low power. The low power setng is for close proximity radio contacts or  when  running  an  external  amplifier.   For  low  power,  simply  place  both  controls  to  the  down  or  LOW positon. It is critcal to keep the AM transmiter’s peak to average rato correct in order to prevent your signal from being compressed or distorted and that is the reason for 2 controls, insuring the correct peak to average rato at all tmes.  

•  FOR HIGH RF PERFORMANCE OPERATION  it  is  suggested  to  set  the CARRIER  switch  to  LOW and  the PEAK switch to the HIGH positon. This will give your signal that extra punch that  is sometmes needed  in order to get through the QRM.

•  Do not operate  the  radio with  the PEAK switch set  in  the LOW positon and  the CARRIER set  in  the HIGH positon, your signal will be compressed and distorted.

•  AM/FM  carrier  is  factory  preset  at  2-3 wats  on  LOW  setng  and  18 wats  on HIGH  setng.  DO NOT  SET CARRIER HIGHER THAN 18 WATTS, IT WILL DESTROY THE RF AMPLIFIER AND WILL VOID ALL WARRANTIES!
