Got my new to me Fanon fanfare Am , , switched on went to chan 6 and it was there this is the first time i had a listen, and then put a call out but they never heard me, but there will be a time that they will hear me, funny picking up very well on the Fanfare and next to no crap, but on the magnum 257 it was 6.7 sig of pure noise. but very little noise on the fanfare older radio better filtering very low in the box there is no mike gain or rf gain but it works and the magnum mike gain and rfgain same antenna A99 , what ever it works, its not Uniden but not Cybernet, its in very good condition so next time i will be more ready with my little helper key up and it a 4 modulation with swing up to all most 30+
