Video - The President Richard AM/FM


Taking a look at the new President Richard 10m AM/FM Ham Radio (Yeah right), we all know this is just a way to get high powered CB radios into the US. Let's be honest, no-one is going to buy this radio to use solely on 10m as it does not have SSB.

The radio itself looks really nice....but is it just me or do those controls and switches look a little on the cheap side? Sell it for £100 and no-one minds but with an expected UK price of over £200 personally I would expect a higher quality finish on the controls... PLUS - NO SSB!
