    I walked through entire shack setups for that dollar amount and covered less expensive cases. I also noted that money can be saved by building your own antennas and power supplies, etc.

    Thanks for watching.

    I like the units with a detachable face as I run my units remote (add $500 later for the remoterig setup with WI-FI module).

    The FT891 is ATAS compatible for the ATAS 120 antenna

    The IC-7100 is a great starter all in one unit

    Both are remote capable and keep that at the radio feel when using them with the remoterig setup, I use my Kenwood TS-2000 remotely with the RC-2000 head and my cell phone as a hot spot or through a TP link AC750 wireless travel router TL-WR902AC so I can access wireless connections.

    Adding wireless connections to the remoterig requires logging into the remoterig unit which is hard to do from your phone with the remote rig set as DHCP.

    So by setting up the TP-link as a wireless device on the remote rig you can access the TP-link from your phones web browser to add a new wireless connection from your favorite remote WI-FI friendly location.

    For ~$900 I would recommend a slightly user newer serial number TS-2000 as it is an all in one box which has a great tuner, dual receive. Or a Ten-Tec Omni vII (with built in tuner).

    TS-480SAT or (HX and a separate 200+ watt tuner and 40Amp PS if yo want that extra punch)

    The Ten-Ten Omni Vii has a built in LAN port Omni_VII_brochure.pdf

    “The OMNI-VII is the first HF transceiver to feature a plug-and-play Ethernet interface for remote control. It’s simple to hook up. Take the OMNI-VII to your remote location, and connect it to high-speed access via your router with an Ethernet cable. No computer is required at the remote location. Using our One Plug GUI software interface, you can then control all features and functions of the transceiver from a high speed Internet access point with your PC or laptop. Full transceive operation is supported. You don’t need a separate VOIP client for audio – receive audio is streamed via your sound card and transmit audio is via a microphone attached to your computer. CW operation is just as easy. Type characters on the computer keyboard and they are sent as transmitted CW by the radio. An optional USB keying module for iambic paddle use is planned.”

    7300 is damned good. I get contacts on the 7300 that I could not get before. I have had loads of HF rigs in this price range from Kenwood to Yaesu and this 7300 blows them clean out of the HF water. Now it could be due to conditions being up but I am gobsmacked at the stations I am getting and it is only a radio change, nothing else.

    I like RGO One tranciever. UFB reciever, simple and easy to operate. Best for me

    But how far will you reach when/if the internet goes down in your area? Everything has a purpose and use. I can go to online chat rooms and talk to people around the world also.

    "Once there was a friend of mine
    Who died a thousand deaths
    His life was filled with parasites
    And countless idle threats.
    He trusted in a woman
    And on her he made his bets
    Once there was a friend of mine
    Who died a thousand deaths."

    from Neil Young's Barstool Blues. Zuma 1975

    Because they think they're clever celebrities.

    The upside is that their videos are easy to spot - AND IGNORE!

    If they are so easy to ignore, why do you reply to them all?
