The Ranger RCI-63FFC1 amateur mobile transceiver offers exceptional value for Novice and Technician Class amateurs upgrading to higher class license.

This entry-level unit is designed for easy, reliable and safe mobile operation. Available in high power versions, the RCI-63FFC1 transceiver provides excellent receiver sensitivity and multi-mode operation at a fraction of the cost of full band transceivers.

The easy-to-use frequency selection system covers the 10- meter amateur band in 6-band segments. Actual operating frequency is accurately displayed in the 6-digit LED display that’s easy to read even in bright sunlight.

A channel indicator speeds return to a popular or previously used frequency without interfering with the operator's attention to the road.

Selectable Automatic Noise Limiter (ANL) and Noise Blanker assures noise reduction during mobile operation.

Front panel RF power output control and RF Gain controls enable the operator to set transmitter power and receiver sensitivity to match operating conditions.

Additional front panel controls assure optimum performance under widely varying conditions:

—     A +10 kHz switch complements the frequency selection system by shifting the Tx and Rx frequencies up by a known amount for increased driving safety.

—     Easy-to-read panel meter - three-functions indicating received signal strength, transmitter power output, and antenna SWR.
