    It is fun to check in on the vintage transceiver nets and the Atlas 210X is a great vintage transceiver that was built in the USA. The 210X is all solid-state (no tune xmit).

    The Atlas 210X has a surprisingly quiet and sensitive receiver that includes 80 thru 10 meters (no WARC). The VFO is very smooth and the receive audio is very clear. The noise limiter was an option and rare. The 210X does not have RIT, but how often does anyone use RIT for general rag chewing and checking into vintage nets.

    I do not have a lot of history on the 210X, but I suspect the transceiver is fairly reliable. It produces 100 watts PEP out and uses about 20 amps at 13.8 volts DC.

    The price of the Atlas 210X varies wildly from $100 to $300+.
