New upgraded version with improved RX filtering & larger heatsink

A new multimode (AM/FM/SSB) multistandard radio for use in all EU countries. Simply select your country and the radio will automatically operate on the legal bands for your country.

In the UK the radio will operate on all 80 legal FM channels, and will also operate on the new SSB channels when they are hopefully made legal later this year.

The radio works on AM, FM, USB and LSB in countries where all these modes are permitted.

A fully featured compact multimode radio with the usual President quality.

The radio is expandable for use outside the EU.

We can supply the radio either standard or expanded for no extra charge. This new version still allows you direct access to the UK 40 channels once the radio is expanded, which you lost on the standard version - so there is no need to have a switch fitted.

Although both the front and the features are identical to the standard Grant II, this radio uses a completely new circuit board which includes improved filtering and the option for higher output power (hence the larger heatsink on the rear).

We can also supply the radio modified so that you can switch between "expanded" coverage and standard "UK/EU" coverage. This is only an extra £11 - just ask at time of purchase.
