1. Did you get that from anon-co

I’m interested but just can’t pull that trigger. Too busy working on a palo alto certification.

2. I did!


I sprung for the custom set, which comes with Tecsun inline recorder and other cool stuff!

About $200.




It's well worth the extra $50.

If I go with one, I’ll do the special edition package for sure.

6. As the guy who pushed him, I'll second everything he said!

The little recorder's/speaker's speaker sounds great. If you have anything that sounds crappy, it's makes for an excellent external speaker.

It's easily one of the best radios on the market today by far.

7. I would like something that hits 6 mtrs

It seems like most receivers skip this band.

And I’m not looking to start collecting receivers to get it. If that happens, I’ll get radio active again and get a rig that does 160 - 6 mtrs instead.

8. Is portability important to you?

If not, you might want to consider an SDR.

Have a look at this:

https://www.sdrplay.com/rsp1a/

"The RSP1A covers the complete radio spectrum from 1kHz (VLF) to 2GHz (Microwaves) with up to a massive 10MHz visible bandwidth and the companion SDRuno software has all the popular ham bands and shortwave broadcast bands as “presets” for instant set-up. "

9. Yeah. Id like to be smaller and somewhat portable

When we move we are looking at places that have rules about antennas. I like the idea of a telescoping antenna and ‘grab and go’.

10. well that that thing is about the size of a pack of cigarettes

But it does need a computer, tablet, or phone to operate. Alternatively you can connect it to a Raspberry Pi and share it. That way you could operate it anywhere you get a cell or Wifi signal.
