This product has been replaced by the Chief II 5 Amp Simplex Radio Equipped (CFIIRE5A) and is no longer available. Click here to view the CFIIRE5A.

The Chief Radio Equipped starter set contained a DCS100 command station, a DT100R throttle, and a UR91 Radio reciever.  These sets were also shipped with a premium decoder of the appropriate scale.

Note early version Chief Starter Sets shipped with DCS100's with stereo clips as shown here.  In versions produced in 2003 and later the screw terminal version of the DCS100 was shipped with Chief Starter Sets.
