1. Would you buy a single band 70mhz SSB/FM transceiver ?
2. Would it be interesting to develop a 70mhz transceiver ?
3. Would you spend $ 200 on a 70mhz transceiver ?
Vote, YES or NO
No CW means not usable on 4M.
70MHz is a weak signal band like 6 and other VHF/UHF bands.
Sure some local work will be done with FM. But there are enough surplus FM rigs for less than 50 euro available to do this.
I would say SSB, CW, FM and a digi mode connection (AF) is a need.
A tuning knob, split frequency, and large out of band coverage is necessary.
Maybe I would buy one with this functionality if the rest is of good quality.
But have my doubts. Guess my transverter with HF rig will outperform a cheap rig. For real low cost I would like to try one.
