We are a friendly bunch and we do give people a chance to work everyone.

News from the President Electronics USA Facebook page is that the President Bill will be available in the USA and Canada from the end of August this year. 

They'll have to lock out the multi-norm channels and the FM mode of course, leaving it as a standard 40 channel AM radio....... 😁

YAWN! - Another AM/FM Radio From President - Truman II


Hardly worth a mention to be honest... It's beginning to feel like Groundhog Day when it comes to President and their 'amazing 12 months of super duper radio stuff' with YET ANOTHER AM/FM ONLY radio being announced for July!

It's the President Truman II, with specifications that you could copy and paste from many of the other radios President have announced so far this year.



40 channels AM / FM - (Multi-EU)

Manual squelch and ASC

Seven Display Colours

Public Address

ANL/NB

Key beep

Roger beep

SWR readout

Emergency (EMG 1 & 2)

Key lock


Let's recap:

So far this year....

JAN - President Ronald - AM/FM
FEB - President Bill - AM/FM
MAR - President Richard - AM/FM
APR - President Jimmy III - AM/FM
MAY - President Walker II - AM/FM
JUN - President Taylor IV - AM/FM
JUL - President Truman II - AM/FM

It's almost 'How many times can we get away with releasing the same radio in a different case?'

I truly applaud Presidents commitment to the hobby but come on, give us something that really is new and exciting with features people actually want!!!!!
