Ranger radios sometimes have a small scratch or ding that the factory covers with black touch up.  We cannot effect this and do not guarantee your radio to be cosmetically perfect.  Bells CB will make no marks or scratches on your radio ourselves.  Ranger might though and I cannot control it.

We highly recommend one of these microphones wired 6-pin because the stock mic sounds like a dixie cup.
Astatic 636L + RD104E.

Optional Accessories
 Tune-up and frequency conversion. (Tune-up, Alignment and expanded frequency coverage)(AM/FM: 10-100w, Peak AM: 150-425+w,  SSB PEP 300-400+w) $49
 Add a "Slider" option to your frequency conversion Modified the Clarifier for ability to control frequency on TX as well as RX, requires frequency realignment This mod is available to some who want it, but I don't necessarily recommend it) $25
 Install a switch to turn off the 400w amp.
(wired behind the radio with a switch for on/off) (AM/FM: 1-5w, Peak AM: 10-44w,  SSB PEP 20-40w)

NOTE: It becomes difficult to use the Talkback even at low volume with this mod.
Switch Option
 Install Talkback
(wired inside the radio so that when you talk you can hear yourself. If you chose an Echo or a Recorder mod, I highly suggest this as well)
Install High Pass Filter Switch
(wired to tone control location inside the radio to cut the high frequency (hiss) sound to a lower tone. Much easier to listen to, I wouldn't own a Ranger without this mod.)
