RCI-5054 Dx100 (6mt)
Other than that It is a good performer for the cost. I put it on an IFR service monitor and checked it out. I first got my Ranger in January Well, about 2 days after receiving the radio the blue LED panel light went out. First of all, they can dump the roger beep since there is really no need rx100 it. I did not contact them about a service manual since they had not replied to my email before. There is no support from Ranger as far as ordering parts. Inside it looks like CB radio technology from the ‘s.
This is my first rig that I have bought brand new.
For the first six months the backlight went out three times. For those field trip contests, DXpeditions, public safety dx1000, or group gatherings, the PA feature is just the answer to coordinating efforts with the group and getting everyone’s attention. They offered to check it out if I sent it in with about a 2 week turn-a-round time.
Ranger RCIDX Amateur 6 Meter Mobile Radio from Ranger Communications
I only use dx1000 on SSB at this time but will soon get a vertical antenna as there is one 6m FM repeater in my area. The rig I obtained came with a white on blue display, which really looks great!

I asked if they could just send me a new model but they declined. I was able to reach everyone I could hear with just a dipole working 7 states in an hour and got good comments on the audio.

I adjusted both using a Bird 43 wattmeter and Bird watt dummy load on the output. So I give this rig a 3 rating for poor quality controlPoor product support and poor communications. It worked virtually everything I could hear during this years VHF contest and just general operating.
Contact the site with comments or questions. Came back on, went out again.
The step tuning works well, just slightly cumbersome but is relatively easy to get used to. I also really like the front panel adjustable RF power out knob. So obvious an error! If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.
Perhaps Ranger has a service manual? Current Draw at full power. These are commonly adjusted at the factory by spreading or compressing the coils using an insulated plastic tool. It has a Clarifier knob which acts the same as RIT. I am really impressed with the company and ordered directly from Ranger-USA.
This is nothing but a modified export CB radio made to cover 6m. The packaging was great and the radio was ready to power up and go. After listening to a lot of the local operators talk about 6-meters, I thought I would give it a whirl.
