Re: Magnum 257(Albrecht AE 485)


Ive had my Magnum 257 (blue display) for a couple of months now. I read a great deal before tading in my 2mtr radio for it (long story) and understood the build quality issues. I brought mine as a 'new' radio, boxed and complete from a good trader.

I went for the 257 because it's small enough to fit in my car.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

First off the SSB power was VERY low. So low it would not drive my amp. Took radio back and explained and a 'tweek' was done inside the radio but it was still not perfect. A further chat and visit and yet another small tweek and now all is well.

Audio reports have always been good and after a few contacts outside the UK I started to warm to the radio.

So all in all I now love my 257. Would like the display to show frequency and channel readout at the same time like the Dragon SS-485 but thats me. Other than that its a keeper I think.
