Hi All,

     I for one am most interested in the new RF clipper.   In the late
seventies and early eighties I ran a Magnum Six RF flipper with my Drake
T4XB.   Now I have heard some say the T4XB did not have very good audio
itself but I disagree and feel it was quite good for the time.   However
with the Magnum Six in line I always got exceptional audio reports and one
could easily see the increased average RF output.   The reports indicated
both improved strength and audio quality.   Now the Magnum Six operated at 9
MHz and thus operated at RF frequencies not in the audio range.   This RF
clipper was not cheap but it was worth every penny.   I was never much
impressed with audio compression nor the RF clippers which converted back to
audio.   Perhaps TenTec has the answer though and if the reports are good
then I will purchase one.
