I haven't used, but do have a v6 version of the 6900 which is pretty much the same radio, just a bit older. If you are looking for a rig to use on CB I am sure you would be happy with it. I had a lot of Euro CB contacts, and 10m contacts on the 6900 soon after passing the foundation as it was the middle of the E skip season, and had many good reports using it.

I see you have a Lincoln 2+ listed as your equipment which has the addition of 12m, so just wondered what was catching your eye on the DX5000? Just curious Smile

Hi   SangueG.

What  i  like  about  the  KPO - DX 5000  is  that  it  has  a  large  frequencey  readout ,  and  because  of  my  eyesight  issues  it  would  be  easier   for  me    to  read.  Thanks  for  getting  back  to  me  with  your  thoughts -  its  appreciated.

Cheers.

CT  -  163  318.

Ah, understood Jeff. My closeup vision is pretty poor so the large channel and frequency digits do help me. I can't read some of the other output on the display like the mode and functions without my glasses though... I made a DX contact up to the north of the country on the 27/81 channels last summer where they said my audio wasn't great, I realised when I put my  glasses on that I was using AM and they  were of course on FM Embarassed

The CRT SS 6900V looks to be the v7 version of the 6900N if you fancy an all blue display version of the radio. Other than that I can't see any differences between the v7 versions of the DX5000 and 6900, someone else may know otherwise.
