Download Manual

The SS-158FB4 is a reliable 10 meter AM-FM-SSB-CW mobile radio. With 400 watts peak AM, 100 watts RMS FM-CW, 400 watts PEP SSB, it provides high performance along with features such as a 6-digit frequency counter, Mic/RF gain, and dual finals.

The SS-158FB4 has a blue frequency counter, channel display and meter. Designed for easy mobile operation, an affordable price tag, and backed by Ranger’s 1-year factory warranty, the SS-158FB4 will answer your needs for SSB mobile operation.

The Superstar SS-158FB4 has a classic look and all the power you need. The final amplifier section features four (4) 2SC2879 transistors. High power SSB mobile radio.

• 400+ Watt Final Amplifier
• Variable RF Power Control
• 6 Digit Frequency Counter
• Classic Chrome Front Panel
• S/RF/SWR Front Panel Meter
• Real Channel Selector Control
• Variable Talk Back Controls
• Built-In Echo and Roger Beep
   Echo adjusted internally only.

• Cool Blue LED Channel Display
• 4pin Mic Jack
• Heavy Duty, High Power Heatsink

This may be one of those radios that the frequency counter counts up and  down, the last digit changing all the time.  Additionally the SSB frequency accuracy may drift with temperature changes. We have also found that when echo is turned OFF, that a little bit of tone can be heard on TX.  We cannot change these things, it has been that way with some radios for many years. If you can't live with it, please don't buy this radio. Thank you.
