Re: Looking for the possibly impossibe

Given your "use case" and lack of availability of the KX2, I would suggest any of the following: Xiegu X5105, Xiegu X6100 or the venerable Ft817/818. They would all give you both SSB and CW. I own a KX2, X5105 and '817 (amongst others). The KX2 is awesome, the receiver is amazing, but give...

Re: Selling FT891 to fund a ???

Concur with all, the SW-3B is a great little radio for the money - mine is kept is my car along with a key and battery, antenna etc in a small pack for opportune activation or activity. You can't go wrong for the money. The TR-35 is another excellent choice as Thomas has pointed out. Very light and ...

Re: Another new to me rig: Mission RGO One

For years I used an old Ten-Tec Century 21, even taking it with me to the Falkland Islands (as VP8CZI). I can't help but feel that the RGO is domewhat reminiscent of the Ten-Tec rigs, albeit with a "top notch" design, none of the drift and a narrow, selective and sensitive front end of som...

Re: Reverse Beacon Client App

Not sure about an app, but on Android I just access the RBN Web page - works for me. I've created a link on my "homescreen", so all you need to do is tap it and you are there.

Re: Is ZM-4 still available?

The Kanga products Tranzmatch is highly recommended; I have two, one of each style for the shack and field use respectively.

New QRP Labs Radio - QMX

Hans Summers of QRPLabs has just announced a new radio that looks amazing, especially given the price. As owner of both a 30m QCX and a 20m QCX-Mini, this new multiband CW and Digital radio looks an absolute winner. It is available both as a kit and pre-built. Detail may be found here: http://shop.q...

Case for Penntek TR-45?

I absolutely adore my Penntek TR-45 and it has pride if place on my shack desk alongside my KX3/PX3 combo. Though I usually use my KX2 or Sky-SDR when travelling, I will likely be staying with family in the weeks ahead and was considering taking my TR-45 along to use with an EFHW. The only challenge...
