Cherokee made a name for themselves with the AH-27, small size am handheld. It was closer to a 2 meter HT than it's CB ancestors and came packed with features. They also premiered an 11 meter am/ssb base station (CBS-1000) which I liked better than Cobra's 2010gtl. Finally, almost a year after they announced it, the AH-100, am/ssb handheld was released. Naturally we bought two of 'em to test (Featured under our "REVIEWS" section). I knew that this would be only "okay" for 11 meters ops, but if modifiable, would shine as a 10 meter QRP (low power) portable - and it does!
