Re: Low Cost 10W All Band Xcvr

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. ;-)

Ed,
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.

Have you looked at the Yaesu FT-817 ?

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!

5W or 10W, isn't going to make any difference, perhaps other than battery usage.

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!

July SSS

John Lonigro
 

Well, I hope everyone had a chance to enter their score on the qrpcontest website. Here are the results:

1) Chas (W2SH) won the July contest with 6 points and solidified his 2015-2016 score as well. He has 47 points between November, 2015 and July, 2016 and is 9 points ahead of Terry, WA0ITP. Chas will receive his E-certificate shortly.

2) We had 4 new entries for July: Robert, KR9Z (#431), Barry, AB4QL (no member number yet), Dale, WN0WWY (#481), and Chas, NK8O (#843). Welcome to all. Yes, we now have two members named "Chas" (maybe more).

3) There were 8 people who entered the July SSS, counting Ron (AG1P) and myself (AA0VE), who listened but had no QSOs. While 8 entries is nothing spectacular, it is definitely an improvement over June's results. After seeing those results, I was ready to throw in the towel. Now at least there's hope...

4) For August, I'd still like everyone who even just listened to send in their score. Let's try to have more participation than 8 people next month.

The top three leaders for the year are Chas, W2SH (47 points), Terry, WA0ITP (36 points), and Gary, KF7WNS (34 points).

72 until next month,

John, AAOVE
