*NEW CB?* President Bill II VOX/ASC Coming Soon

Jungle drums are beating on social media that maybe a new version President Bill is in the pipeline with added VOX. As President are more secretive than spy agencies there is nothing certain. No photographs, not really much news other than has VOX. Like each time nothing is sure until it’s on the shelf but maybe something EU from President would be nice! Guess new board and old case and new firmware? Price not much idea but maybe it’s around €130-€140 based on radios available at the moment.

  1. That’s starting to get a bit high priced for a CB with its capabilities. A Xeigu G90 covers all the bands with 20 watts and more functionality for around twice the price. It also features a control head that can be remote mounted using an inexpensive serial cable. Yes, it’s a ham radio but the mod is prolly easier than most CBs. Here in the states it isn’t as easy to get a full featured President Bill anyway. They apparently neuter them to meet FCC requirements.

    • Xiegu is €500 here and Bill will be €119 in comparison. Many a Bill EU went to the USA. Personally I know of 24 went across the pond. FCC radio is just that it will be 40 channels and 4w. Across in Europe sure it’s a little different based on the same idea
