    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.

    Thanks Julian!

    Very good it has direct USB charging. GPS clock, IF it also disciplines the attached computer clock, is a big plus point.

    Pretty good current figures. Can't see anything to criticise there.

    Altogether, a rig that hits the right spot for all us portable field operators. But I will let the rich retired folk out there find the problems and get them ironed out before I part with any hard-won cash...

    My primary question: How well can you read the color display outdoors in the sunlight?

    This isn't football. It isn't necessary to wave your pompoms at the person who cheers for another team.

    Who cares. USA uses coal and that is the worst fuel to use in the world. Cheap and Dirty.

    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?
