AM/SSB Mobile CB Radio

Download Manual

    The Texas Ranger TR-696FD1 is the latest in the line of "new circuit design" products by Ranger Communications, Inc. Built with ruggedness, durability and reliability in mind, this model will answer your needs for a high performance radio with both AM and SSB operation.

The TR-696F features a new Advanced Noise Filter Circuit for improved signal to noise ratio, providing high noise rejection capability that others just claim they have. This one works! You will instantly notice marginal signals pop in better when you turn on the switch and listen to your reception with a quieter signal. The Advanced Noise Filter circuit de-emphasizes the audio high frequency response in order to increase the signal-to-noise ratio of weak signals. This provides you with the ability to receive those marginal signals with much more clarity and understandability. Combined with the Noise Blanker and the Automatic Noise Limiter, this has to be the quietest mobile stations ever manufactured.

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new tuned radio will NOT sound great with a stock mic on it.
 If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone.  My personal favorites are the Astatic 636L and RD104E.


If you place an order from outside the continental USA, we will calculate your actual shipping and send you a PayPal payment request.  We do NOT export Base stations or  Antennas.
