Due to many searches and also emails asking me I’ll again mention the same as the other times when it’s asked about the power of these radios. Rule of thumb this radio will make around 4/7w FM and 9/15w SSB after that you’ll have issues with heat, reliability and the harmonic you’ll make won’t be too special. If want to make more please buy an RM linear or other.
This radio is doing 10 watts FM and 20 SSB and gets very warm in a short time
This radio would benefit from a service or a heatsink
So bear that in mind when asking me
“Simon mate, which trimmer gets my Grant II upto 25w” or this beauty
“Uniden F’ed up my radio it just make 13w I need at least 20w”
To see the Grant II which gets hot: eBay item number 182250404411
Need more vaaa vaaa voom get a linear, that’s it! Simple as that really.. Be smart and don’t be a screwdriver twisting Google trained CB engineer, if need more power get an amplifier, buy a HF set but if need 20w the standard non premium G2 isn’t for you. Plain & Simple!!
