Just got off a nice QSO with Joe WA2PJP and Tom N3CXP on my second outing with the Nouveau 75a. Interesting little transceiver, and it will take just the right conditions for me to fully enjoy it. 80 meter monobander. The transceiver is about 6 watts on transmit, and the receive passband is about 4Kc. Neither is very generous, but the box takes very little power at 12VDC, and I expect to use it out in the woods on a gel cell this fall and winter. Transmit audio is said to be good, according to Tom, who could hear me better at his place in Allentown (PA) than could Joe on Long Island (NY). The band had not really come in at 5pm EDT. For $125, with a VFO in 1kc steps, it's already a lot of fun. I can't imagine being much farther from my usual Collins 300-G in technology, weight, and power.
