Tcvr 4m

Postby OK1RP » Fri 16 Nov 2012, 12:25

Hi,

small tcvr all mode on 4m band with good close-in BDR, IMD, sensitivity and at least 10W somethink like K1 (Elecraft) > I vote Yes. The question is if it is reachable in $200 range?

Cant remember if I voted previously for this...

No... I would rather use a good transverter with a good HF rig...
That gives me good weak signal performance and on the odd occaision I need FM, well thats available too..

PS.. I already have the above.

Having thought about it I have decided that a transverter and HF rig approach is by far the better option at the present time.

Don't worry the big three will soon be adding the band just like they did with 6M.

The market is now getting big enough.

No from me,
If I want to go mobile or portable I'll just build another OZ transverter in a very small case and couple it to a KX3.
I'm happy to do things the way I do right now, transverter into PROII, with all the benefits that system has to offer including dual watch, spectrum scope, good filters and DSP NR etc.
Admittedly it is costly, but the rig does drive transverters for other bands too.

Not my cup of tea, but I can fully understand it being the choice of many, particularly if you can’t build.

I would be willing to pay more if was up to the mark.

What I would like to see would be a kit or even a design for a 70Mhz ssb/cw transciever.
Any takers?
