Now there is a new version of this rig available from Nevada and others. The new version, President Lincoln 2, has a maximum SSB power of 31W and includes USB/LSB/AM/FM and CW modes, lots of nice features and a 2 year (maybe 3 year?) warranty. It is basically a high class, multi-mode CB radio, designed and made in China and selling for around £250. The Nevada price is very slightly higher. It is reported to have been 3 years in the design and well made.
I am very tempted to buy the new version if I can negotiate a good deal as 10m remains my very best band. Running it at 10-20W, the rig should be reliable and well capable of decent DX.
