Bunneh needs a new rig!

Postby W3BNY » Tue Feb 21, 2006 7:46 am

Yep, im in the market for a new HF rig and looking for comments.

I really, REALLY, REALLY want a SG-2000 but its like pulling hens teeth to find one. and if you try to get one from SGC you have to order 10 of them.

I want a rock solid bullet proof NTIA compliant 150w+ rig with DSP that I dont have to cut/snip/de-solder/use mad hax0r skillz to operate on MARS/CAP/NTIA freqs. and keep it under 2.5K

Any suggestions?

Buddy of mine has one and really likes it.

It's the replacement for the TS-50 but I personally think it's in a totally different league.

200 watt sexy! :ham:

But but I thought computer controlled rigs are the antithesis of amateur radio?!

You know, unless you can see the dial by the light of the tubes you ain't no :ham:!
