This article helps SR-955 HPC 10 meter radio Users, What is best in it and things that most of users don’t know about it. So stick your Eyes and be prepared for to do some reading.
SR-955 HPC was introduced by Stryker-Radios in starting of 2012. This sensational radio was long awaited and has finally emerged as the fruit of the tireless efforts of Stryker along with its manufacturers and design experts. SR-955 HPC is recognized as a powerful SSB radio with the entire standard features of its ancestor AM radios while providing advanced features of the SSB facility.
SR-955 HPC first look
First impress was a neat and shining radio out of the box, That was packed with
- Caution that to use without FCC license may be unlawful.
- Mounting Bracket + Hardware.
All the SSB radios introduced till date have offered the same issue year after year i.e. a strong frequency drift during SSB operations. Although the Magnum 257, Optima, and RCI 29xx series have been free from this flaw but generally this issues has made SSB operations quite tough for a normal user. Another issue bothering the users was that SSB radios, despite of their ability to work on the SSB mode, performed better on the AM mode instead. So the SR-955 HPC was introduced as a solution to these problems because it is capable of operating with the same stability on all the modes and provides a consistent performance throughout.
Display of SR-955 HPC
After connecting it with 13.8 Volts battery all you feels will an eye catching display. That is loved by most of its Users and also we love its unique LED back-lit lighting system. It is adjustable with the unique Dimmer control to the level where you find it suitable for your eye sight. The channel and meter display compliment this lighting system and you can monitor them conveniently from a distance as well. There is plenty of illumination on the front panel as well as the component labeling due to which you can easily manage the radio in all sorts of lighting conditions.

Problem with many radios is annoying beeps. But if you are really a fan of roger beeps then sr-955 hpc will have this excitement feature of customizing beeps with PC software which you can download from Stryker-Radios website. The pre-loaded beeps can be selected through the programming menu. You can also switch roger beep feature on and off with a switch on the front of the radio.
Modifying for Frequency changes
Many of CB dealers modified it to CB frequencies. But this transceiver is for 10-meter-only mode (ham frequencies) but after remodeling its frequency may vary from 24.000 MHz to 30.0150 MHz.
SR-955 HPC power of Transmitting and Receiving Signals
The Stryker SR-955 HPc 10 meter radio has great output: 75-85 watts on SSB and around 65 watts on AM. There is a bit small noise similar to many radios, but overall receive is pretty much great. For SSB receive is awesome after some warm up, voice sound so much natural. Great transmit from this radio, many of people on air asking what kind of radio you are in with. We had tried a variety of but radio with is microphones is almost a king.
Before giving you a conclusion I finally decided to list down some of Pros and Cons of this radio.
Hardly ever may be the stock microphone the best choice for just about any radio however in my personal checking with some other mics it got the best grades. So great job to Stryker on finding out steps to make a stock mike sound much better on their own radio.
The modern engineering used on the SR-955 HPC has got made a radio which has so small drift it’s a non-issue which is actually a big deal for SSB operators who use export radios. Usually the export industry has had a ton of radios which were high in volume on AM and okay on SSB but would drift in all places.
Price for this radio is slightly high approaching $350.00 but it also depend upon where you want to buy this.
Stryker did special with this particular radio plus they accomplished it by hearing their customer base. Radio was a very long time heading out however they were able to mix the simplicity of use featuring of the old export radios with the elevated power, features like software options and frequency stability are latest and newer for this radios.
