    I didn't look fully at the specs. That's a tiny little rig.

    Some of them...but the main problem? It's not a very convenient set up for most of us who use the G90. Most, like me, I suspect, use it for portable/POTA operation, and having another box, cables, power requirements, etc. doesn't really fit the way we operate with the radio. Having a larger screen is nice, but the screen on the radio, small as it is, is surprisingly sharp and readable and is enough for me.

    I see they've got he price of the GSOC down to just over 400. 100 lower and I might give it a shot. If they don't discontinue it first.

    It's communist in name only. Just like the PRC itself...an oligarchy proudly proclaiming itself a communist country while everybody there is scrambling for PROFITS and another BMW. ;)

    All true. Well except for your "Zeye-goo." I asked a Mandarin speaking colleague about it and she said "sheh-gu." ;)

    Well, I'll pick a nit on the manual. I thought the current G90 manual was pretty good if not perfect. Not that I've ever seen a really good manual from Icom/Yaesu/Kenwood, either.

    It is just like the CCP leader Xi, folks in the USA [even in the news] call him Zi, yet it is pronounced "Shee"

    I defer to my colleague, who's a fluent speaker and has spend many years in-country. Assuming I heard her correctly, of course. :)

    Their McDonalds and KFC serve stuff that's a bit different from here...but they're still there.

    Let's not even get started on Bo Fengs (my preferred pronunciation).

    We had a Chinese ham on here in a recent thread tell us Xiegu is "Shee Gu" as the Xie makes the eh like in "a" apple. So you Friend is correct.
    But Xi is "shee" as it is missing the e. I only used that as an example of how in the USA news you hear him called Zi, but it really is "Shee".
