    I recently installed this along with a Wilson 1000 antenna. I find that I can usually talk over distances of 5 – 8 miles under most conditions on AM, but SSB is always a roll of the dice, depending on the atmospherics. Suffice it to say it can go many multiples of that if the skip is cooperating. This radio has very good receive and audio, making it a pleasure to use on the road. In combination with this particular antenna, it gets out loud and clear, too. I really like the adjustable talkback…
