    Good to see the g90 working. Also the family which did all the work.
    It is great to be in p.o.t.a.
    Hope you had many contacts.

    Thanks... getting young people in the hobby is what I do, both at work and at home! I'm lucky, I have an awesome kiddo!

    Jherica had more contacts than I did... but that is usually the case hihi. She has gotten really good at working the pile ups... and I am often quite happy just to log them for her and enjoy the time together playing radio!

    Daft question but I just got this radio and nothing happens when I short press the vfo knob. Manual says short press to change tuning steps. Also the freq readout doesn’t have any digit selected. What setting do I need to change? Thanks.

    This is like taking a trip to another state. Thank you for the little detour for my mind.
    Might I make a suggestion? The video is enjoyable, but I am unable to hear the speech all the time due to the radio hash. When the videographer was standing close by, audio was much easier to copy!

    Get one! It's a fun radio and then you too can make a fun video! I made a DX contact to Greece with mine this afternoon, running it on a 12v battery in the back yard. The contact looked at my QRZ page and immediately identified the radio from a photo. The G90 is getting around...
