Not even close. Both had a 150Ω element.
Only the Road King came with a matching transformer to bump it up to 600Ω.
Road King also included a high pass filter which Astatic didn't have.
Results vary by technician. It's all about the tune.
A good mic

Ok, but what about what you can buy off the shelf today?Last edited: Nov 19, 2019
Unltil you can try out a few to see what you like its just anothers opinion..
Also depends on your tech as rabbi said but if you wanna compare oit of the box with same radio,youtube has comparisions..
SRA 198 is king right now. Nothing else comes close. Unless.... like already mentioned, the tech has tune the radio per using a premium mic. With that said...... every one that I know have gone from the RK 56 and astatics 636 to the SRA 198 and are more pleased. They wish they have listened before.....Last edited: Nov 19, 2019

Mmm, Astatic seemed to have a higher tone "hollow" sound to it and the RoadKing had a lower tone "muted" sound to it.
It depends on what kind of voice you have as to which will sound better.202 and Rideandrepair Thank this.

202 and rabbiporkchop Thank this.
Would have to be back around 2000ish..
Wish I still had my old RK, bought it in the late 90s, sold it with my Galaxy 99 12 yrs ago when I thought I was done with OTR
Ok so I’m sold on the Ranger mic, I see it listed on eBay for $26 right now with free shipping.
What’s a decent radio nowadays, let’s say under $300?
