Re: New kits

Thank you Don,

for this.  When you have a moment would you kindly send me the text file.

Please understand that I'm not planning to "shop" your creation.  It's strictly for my personal use.  A few years ago I purchased a completed 160m board from another ham.  Now I'd like to do one myself.

Advance tnx es 72,

Re: Anyone out there tonite?

w2sh@...
 

WAØITP and I both have the Tentec 539, aka Argo VI, and had we delayed our purchases, the cost would have been less than the $999 we both paid.  Both he and I like the rig, but we both have our gripes.  I'm still composing my dislike list, but I'm using the rig full-time and not planning to let go of it.

Charles (aka Chas), W2SH

There are a few Argo's in the group, I know, but not sure who all has them.  I've been salivating over the KX3 for a couple of years now, since my first trip to Ozarkcon in 2013 when I got to go hands on with Jim Sheldon's KX3.  Recently had a little bit of money come my way, and the XYL said I could finally make the jump.  It just got delivered this afternoon, and set it up tonite.  Definately sounds good tho!  You wouldn't go wrong if you picked it up, I don't think!

In spite of my best intentions I have a few unbuilt kits on hand that I will not be building in the foreseeable future.

I have a Cyclone 40m transceiver (SN113) that needs a good home.  If you missed out on one before they were retired, or just need another solder smoke fix, please contact me directly at:
