*President Taylor IV* Just A Little Look

Something new again from the 12 months of President which was to celebrate there 40 years in business. The President Taylor has been a true user radio in all of its incarnations during the years but was never a true multi-norm radio. This has now been redressed with the all new Taylor IV. And to keep with tradition it’s got an analogue signal meter BUT also a frequency display as well as channel so bringing it really bang up to date. It was like the Uniden 100 wayyyy back when and that design remained almost the same till now! Now the change is massive.

– 40 channels AM / FM 
– Channel rotary switch
– Volume adjustment and ON/OFF
– Manual squelch and ASC
– Multi-functions LCD display
– Frequencies display
– S/RF vu-meter
– ANL / NB / HI-CUT filters
– Mode switch AM / FM

– Public Address

– Preset emergency (EMG 1/2)
– Key beep
– Roger beep
– Mic type electret / dynamic
– F function key
– SWR (Power Reading /SWR)

Note my words well! I’ll feature it on here and on my YouTube channel but as this has comes from a dealer directly for me to look at then any review will come when I’ve freely and openly bought my radio from the dealer.

Case is like the Andy and Barry, heat sink on the back and NO ADJUSTMENTS on the board at all, absolutely nothing. Didn’t look as not allowed to open it, but was told it’s true. Although it’s small it seems fully featured. We are lucky the weekend is ahead and it’s a long one so can have a play around and see what’s what.

    • That’s going to be wait and see I guess. It’s especially nice that the meter is analogue plus channel display and frequency too. In the next days see how it works and if any conditions at all
