It’s already started! I nearly spit my breakfast all over the kitchen this morning. And it’s from, drum roll “The UK” no less. An unhappy owner of a President Mc Kinley that missed the memo it was a CB and not a Yaesu (other radios available too) and wrote me a long message via contact form.
I’ve a Mc Kinley and need make it work better. I need a few more watts, make FM audio louder and also adjust the echo on the board. It’s alright like but just need to make it better! And f*** it gets hot mind you. AND it don’t behave like a Ham Radio mind ya! Even as it does the ham bands.
Imagine what’ll happen if you try to make more watts based on now how hot it gets? Maybe consider using a lower power level and add a linear maybe as it’ll take some of the stress out of the components if you raise it internally. Echo has adjustments in the menu isn’t that what you need? FM Audio, aha always never ok. I’d suggest let a technician look at it. True it won’t behave like a Ham Radio as it’s a feature packed CB radio. It’s nothing else plain and simple.
If you buy this Mc Kinley it’s a CB! Please if need Ham Radio buy a Ham Radio not a CB!
That’s why a couple of years ago I told a reseller make the Modifications harder, make things more difficult. That’s why I’m also in favor of no adjustment boards. In just this one message I know I was right to promote hardware changes to make test mode and no adjustments in boards whether 4mm or 2mm technology as you get troubles if everything is too easy.
