    That is an eye-wateringly good deal - $200 for 'the full kit'

    I don't see any chat that the filtering issue is resolved in the V6 kit text.

    For $200 it does look a value. What is the filtering issue? some reviews seem to be hit and miss.

    Reading some of the reviews and seeing the issues with filtering I don't think this thing is ready for prim time.

    15 meters: SSB & CW are good (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/2?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0)

    17 meters: SSB & CW are good (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/3?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0)

    20 meters: SSB harmonics are higher by 4db, CW is good (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/4?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0).

    30 meters: CW harmonics are 4db above the required level. SSB is not allowed anyway (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/5?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0)

    40 meters: SSB is 3db above the green line, CW is even higher by 10 db (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/6?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0)

    80 meters: SSB is within the spec, CW is out of spec by 5 db (https://groups.io/g/BITX20/photo/65861/8?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0)

    To sum it up:

    Still not compliant out of the box.

    Anyone considering a purchase should be aware - no big to me, I picked up a KX2.

    Still at $200 these look like a good deal - with an external filter/tuner...

    Perhaps when someone actually gets a V6 radio and tests it we will know if in fact it is compliant or not. Since I am impatient, I have already ordered the full kit. With any luck, it will get here right after Xmas - A late present for me!

    Looking forward to your build notes and screen shots of your spectrum analyzer.

    Thanks in advance for the offer....
