    Product Description

    Anytone AT-6666 best 10 meter cb radio

    Dubbed to become the successor of the AT-5555, I wondered if some flaws were fixed, or about to be fixed. When I reviewed the Superstar 6900N, which I still own and use, I ran into a few problems. The most prominent one was the presence of unwanted mixer products up and down the carrier.

    CRT France, apparently very annoyed by my findings, refused to send a service manual. This ruled out the possibility of finding the cause, let alone a fix.

    Last flaw: 5 KHz steps are too coarse for amateur use.

    “Export Radio”
    The AT-6666 best 10 meter cb radio is one of many so-called export radios. An export radio is basically a CB transceiver that can’t be sold legally in most countries. Either the power output is too high, the frequency range is too wide, or some modes aren’t allowed. In most cases all of the above applies.

    The trick some manufacturers use is to initially limit the frequency range to 28.000 – 29.700 MHz and advertise these radios as ham radio transceivers. Suddenly these radios are legal to sell, because ham radio operators may use any mode and generally don’t have to worry about power output restrictions.

    The catch: without exception it is very easy to modify these transceivers and change them into an (illegal) CB radio.

    First impressions
    The first thing I noticed is that this radio looks more like ham radio equipment than previous models. The ‘old’ Anytone AT-5555 and all its identical twins can be recognized as CB radios from miles away, but this model could fool you.

    The AT-6666 best 10 meter cb radio is a small radio: 24.6cm x 15.7cm x 4.8cm  (depth x width x height, heat sink and knobs included). The microphone is simple but ergonomic with Up and Down buttons located on top.

    The LCD background color is selectable, something I like a lot.

     

    Frequency accuracy
    At the highest resolution of the counter I measured a difference of +5Hz. Such a small difference is completely irrelevant.

    Power Output Measurements (@ 29.000 MHz)
    FM: 40 Watts
    AM: 15 Watts carrier, 30 Watts @ 100% modulation
    SSB: 55 Watts

    Not quite at the promised levels yet. Don’t forget that this is a preview sample.

    Menus
    The menus are divided in two parts. One is hidden under the menu button, the other under the channel selector. The menus pop up when you press these keys for about one second.
