    Put it on the shelf and build a real radio. You did say constructive discussion. right?

    Despite your negative opinion, there is a lot of interest in this radio, I hoped that the thread would be geared for these operators.

    So much doom and gloom about anything that is NOT TenTec, etc.. etc.. Get a life, not everyone is made of $$$.

    The WonderRadio is damn near a carbon copy of the SDR-1000, at a more affordable price.

    My intent was not to create a static filled thread, but I guess it was in evadable.

    Forget your new-fangled eelektrisity. Polish up your mirror. I see a scout on the horizon. :cool:

    I've complained about new ham gear using RS-232 ports.

    This one uses a parallel port??!?!

    Parallel port is used so as to make it compatible with PowerSDR software with SDR 1000 as hardware.

    Additional USB to parallel cable is available.

    Laptops these days are still coming with parallel ports.

    USB can be so finnicky. I like the simplicity of USB... but only when it works right.

    Thankfully I use Ubuntu so it's a lot easier.

    On a serious note, there has been a lot of discussion on this particular radio, but not much in the way of pictures or data. I provided that. Advertisement is paid for. I dont recall getting a payment from anyone, just ur lip service. :D

    Get rid of the mirror. It's all about smoke signals.

    Who is making laptops with parallel ports? It's hard enough to find a desktop PC motherboard these days with a parallel port built in, still possible but fading fast.

    I don't like 'puter radios. I like dials, knobs, buttons, switches......HOWEVER looks VERY nice, and, I am sure it works great.

    Also, of course, the ultimate flexibility of every aspect, from 'frequency' to ergonomics, and visual layout of the control sysstem, etc. is a HUGE advantage over what I was weaned on.....

    But...Still, for me, I like knobs, dials, and a lightle 'heft'......:)

    A real ad would include information on the manufacturer's web site and prices and ordering info etc. Not to mention specs and test results. Can you provide any of this?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    No, I cannot. This is not an ad hence is why you dont see that information, but I know what your intent is.

    Anyone seriously interested should advise Google, the rest of the details are there.

    FYI these guys gave up the ghost this week, they posted a notice on the Yahoo forum that they are no longer in business.

    Lots of lost and damaged shipments.
