Hi John, perfectly serviceable entry level radio that will do everything you need out of the box.
Just remember to bin the mic as the stock one is garbage, put a power mic on it and it will serve you well.

Good radio, I have two of them. But both of them have developed the standard fault of the channel selector skipping channels. Consider getting 7900 or AT5555N. They don't cost a lot more and are better in many ways, for example a clarifier which doesn't move in notches and cut out the audio with every adjustment.

I've got a 6900n and a cre8900 both good radios happy I bought the 6900, the cre has a hyperactive signal meter so have to roll the RF gain back slightly but yeah I like both... I would like a 9900 but do many reports about the heat sink getting ridiculously hot

I just sold my Magnum 257 and got an SS9900, wanted it for Mobile and it has an extra woomph of 60 watts PEP on SSB.  Is the stock mic really that bad, not used it yet gonna install tomorrow, had to do some programming this AM as wanted to ensure 10m,11m, & 12m were all put in properly. Hope to be out High peaking with it Saturday??

9900 are good radios just get warm if used on full power especially on FM , the mic on it is ok it's better than the 6900 mic but you can change it easy enough

Take the mic apart and remove the foam.

I changed the mic on my 6900N from the stock mic to a K-PO DMC 110 p6 with not much difference in audio reports.Then advised to try the K-KO cheap coffin mic and all I can say is what a difference a £15 mic can make,unbelievable to be honest.
Cheers Tom.

I use the stock mic with foam removed on mine and have had many good reports. I think I've got lucky and the cheapy mic just suits my voice. Mic gain on radio set high, but not to maximum. The channel up down buttons on the mic save wear on the radio channel selector too Smile
