I see a great opportunity for someone to market an external amplifier (100W) for base station use. If that were the case, I would purchase it. I know from the video it is a great off the grid radio. I am personally interested in home operations with all the features including D-Star.

I would never live in the USA. Canada is the best country in the world.
I would rather have 2 and 3/4 meters output on their own BNC tan an antenna tuner. EM Coms often require changing between HF and V/UHF. Are you guys really going to add a coax switch or be changing antennas?
