Tech Review: Stryker SR-955HPC 10 Meter Ham Radio

If you recently passed your technician class amateur radio test, then you probably know that your new license gives you CW operating privileges on several HF bands. You also just earned yourself 200KHz of SSB voice privileges in the 10 meter band.

The Stryker SR-955HPC covers a frequency range of 28.000 – 29.700MHz, has an output power of 70+ watts, and is capable of the following operating modes: SSB, AM, FM, & CW. It also is PC programmable via the mini USB port on the back of the radio.

By putting all its controls on the front panel in the form of knobs instead of hiding them away in a confusing labyrinth of menus, Stryker has made the SR-955HPC user interface easy to use and even quicker to learn. This should make the SR-955HPC very attractive to new hams who might prefer actually getting on the air after passing their test instead of reading a encyclopedia-sized radio manual.
