Guess it was one of the worst kept secrets in radio land. Ranger were looking for a new dealer or owner for the brand and it’s great that Eric Lewis the son of the late Sam Lewis has now the brand under his wing as the North American sales contact. Below we’ve the details about the radio. You’ll know Palomar with the release of its excellent SL-41 noise cancelling microphone. Maybe this could be the new start or shot of coffee that Ranger has needed?

I think could be related to the RCI 6300F & 6900F so maybe not so new. Look below
