Re: Low Cost 10W All Band Xcvr

 

Hi Paul,
The China CW rigs got me some very good DX and also I still have my 40 meter and 20 meter CW 5 watt rigs.
I use an external PICO keyer with a speed control pot on it so I can adjust fast to the hi or low speed sender.

Re: CW Keys

 

Hi Gang,
I have one of those tiny CNC machined keys ( CLORE GREEN
I no longer use it because I find it is to light for the way I operate.
Looks like this attached but does not have the heavy black base
Make a reasonable offer

That seems to be the real issue... and the folks in GB have discussed this as well... not much out there for a 10W, multi-band rig with an economical price being manufactured. No free lunch expected but it would be nice to have dessert occasionally. ;-)

When you say multiple bands, 10 watts, low power consumption, I don't know anything in the economical range. The new Elecraft KX2 meets your first three requirements at $750 base, but well over $1000 with its extras. I had the same requirements for a base station QRP radio and ended up with a K2 at over $1000 when I had it set up like I wanted. No free lunch that I know of.

I am considering it since finding that Icom discontinued the IC-703, but I would like to find a 10W rig. Lately I have been able to hold a QSO using 10W but lost it when dropping to 5W.

I have one and it is my favorite radio of all the ones I have or have owned previously. You would have to pry it from my "cold dead hands".

The hb-1b mk3 represents great value for the $.  The internal battery option works well.  Use a resonant antenna (consider the LNR MTR) and no tuner is required.  Install one of the tiny touch keyers (on the corner) and you have a go anywhere/anytime, rugged little rig.  The filtering is a little wide, but the ability to listen-only to SSB is handy late at night when CW is dead.  Not for serious contesting, but a fun rig!

Remember, from 5W to 100W only makes 2 'S-Units' difference on the receive and.

Indeed, it was a great net tonight. This was only the 2nd time this year I've checked into the Wednesday evening net. I've either been out of town, forgot about it, or the band was so bad I couldn't hear anyone. Most signals tonight were very good, Thanks Wayne!
