—  Built-in Frequency Counter —  Bright LED Display
—  Multifunction Panel Meter —  Display Dimmer (RCI-6300F series)
The Ranger RCI-6300F (AM/FM) and RCI-6900F (SSB/AM /FM) series of amateur mobile transceivers offer exceptional value for Novice and Technician Class amateurs upgrading to Tech Plus and higher.

These entry-level units are designed for easy, reliable and safe mobile operation. Available in high and low power versions, the RCI-6300F and RCI-6900F transceivers provide 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.

—     Separate coarse and fine tuning controls for tuning above and below the selected frequency for ease of operations. (RCI-6900F models).

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

Base Station Application:
For use of the RCI-6300 Series and RCI-6900 Series in a base station application, the following are recommended power supplies:
 Ranger Model Current Draw 
Power Supply
 RCI-6300 FTB & F-150  18 Amps Astron RS-20A or equivilent
 RCI-6900 FHP & F-25  3.8 Amps Astron RS-5A or equivilent
 RCI-6900 FTB & F-150  18 Amps Astron RS-20A or equivilent
CAUTION: Please be aware some "switching power supplies" can generate noise that will get into the receiver.
