The news is out, information is that in the summer of 2016 there can be a new SSB radio for the USA Market with an old name returning. And it is the McKinley USA which will be 40 channels, 12w SSB, 4w AM with talkback, weather channels and also of course ASC.
What we know so far is that the radio is based on the 5050 casing from Uniden. The radio started life as a UHF and is now available as a 27MHz AM radio in the Pacific area. BUT all information at the moment shows that the McKinley is or will be a new radio from the inside out and all that is not new is the case.
And the PRO 5050
This will if true will be the first SSB Radio from President on the USA Market and will come as a great addition to the range. Pricing in not known, availability is possibly in the summer but the dealer who told me about it believes that at MATS (Mid America Trucking Show) during the last days of March maybe there could be news about it whether in picture or another form?
If you go to MATS and see anything there? Then photograph it and send to me I’m interested to see!
