Typical "Fine Tuned" Trucker SR 955 HPC and SRA 198 ready to be shipped and live comfortably ever after in a big truck and will sound exactly like this over the air. When you have test equipment and know how to use it, you don't need to ask for radio checks! Click click ..
Getting the picture? If they can't show it "like this" then you were mislead and paid too much. Click the "SHOW MORE" button below and learn how to identify the scammers, con artist and golden screwdriver jockeys. Yes, there'll always be disgruntled haters, it's what "they" do best.
Often imitated but never duplicated. Real World Performance, not meterbaited. Contact info below.
To the point plain and clear why you don't have the watts, range, clarity or reliability. Pay Attention, radios not only transform signals in to waves, they transform waves into sound.
Loud, ringy tinny, over modulated spatter box radios are called competition or comp-tuned due to so-called swing kits, mods kits and misalignment's performed by golden screwdriver magicians. Yes, magicians not technicians. This type of loony tunes are useless in the real world.
They'll poise a meter at you while making strange vocal sounds into the mic displaying exaggerated numbers and calling it rms, average or bird watts. They don't have a clue what each unit of measurement actually is or even how to derive it but they sure do put on a show !! lol
How to recognize .. They ask you to "look at the meter" and claim that a pure waveform on a Oscope and a tuned system test bench isn't necessary. Their "meter show" might look impressive but in the real world these tunes yield far less power, range, clarity, reliability and a noisy distorted receiver. Sound familiar? It's OK, many have fallen for these gimmicks and tricks so don't feel bad. It takes some people 30 years + before the see the light.
*** What Most CB And 10 Meter Radio Techs Don't Want You To Know ***
Do your due diligence and demand the testing of your equipment on a minimum 100 MHz Oscope, Bird 4314c meter, 1 GHz spectrum analyzer on a tuned system test bench with a "Certification of Calibration". A tuned system test bench is the only accurate way of measuring spurious emissions, harmonics and "true power" in watts @ the fundamental frequency thus replicating real world performance and achieving maximum range, clarity and proven reliability.
Deliberately only displaying amps, volts, and watts on a jacked up happy meal meter with a distorted waveform utilizing un-calibrated test equipment is a misrepresentation and an illusion playing on your ignorance while insulting your intelligence! If they cant display or explain ac volts, pep, pk, cw, rms (Ohms Law), capacitance, inductance and the basic principles of a phase shift then how do you expect them to test, tune and align your system ? ??
The Faster Rats *** PAY ATTENTION *** CB Rat Race
Beware the con-artist shyster type that only displays one device at a time. He'll show a meter then a scope and maybe a spectrum analyzer but never "everything all at the same time while fully modulating the carrier".
Not pointing fingers but I've seen these scams from coast to coast for almost 35 years in truck stops cb shops, YouTube and now in Facebook Groups. Another shady trick is they'll yell into the mic while showing you an exaggerated power output on the meter but then talk softly while displaying a misleading pattern on the scope. Getting the picture? Getting mad? You should be!
Make sure exhibited is your equipment fully modulated including the meter, scope and spectrum analyzer "All AT THE SAME TIME" and not just a fabricated picture or photo. A video of everything at the same time is the only way of keeping these "magicians" at bay.
Don't let them play Houdini hokus pokus watts on you. Most important, find someone who's competent, has a Service Monitor with a Certification of Calibration and not just a golden screwdriver magician with some test equipment trying to baffle you with their BS and you'll thank me later. Never settle for less because that's what what you'll get, Houdini tricks and Casper the friendly Ghost's hocus pocus watts!
Are you picking up what I'm putting down?
10 Meter Radio updates, tunes and comprehensive alignments are my specialty. Talk further and clearer, hear less white noise and further too.
