    Or perhaps calling CQ and using the phonetic alphabet?
    That's pretty much a dead giveaway. :cautious:

    Be kinda like wearing slacks and wing tipped shoes to a rodeo. :p

    ExitThirteen, Is an old 148 GTL-DX (MK1 or MK2) using (16MHz?I.F. 10.695/455) going to have the same issues as an RCI export? Circuit Board PB010 Vs EPT3600, the Uniden made export should be a clean rig in my eyes but I've never gotten one to check it out.


    Do you think the Uniden Multimode Export w/MC145106 PLL, PB010 chassis
    Cobra 148GTL-DX (late), President Richard, Superstar 360FM going to be as "spurious" as EPT3600 R.C.I. exports (DX66v 88HL)? If the mixing scheme is indeed the same, then I could see how that is cause for concern.

    Best Regards

    Is that the Kenwood which allows users to transmit over drive thru restaurants?

    In that case I'll take it as a compliment. LOL

    I don't have one. People wrongly assume that since my audio is so clean that I must be a ham operator.

    Depends on who "tunes" it. Lots can be done to clean them up.

    Yep, that would be an invitation to get hog tied and branded.
    I don't know, I would be willing to try it though!

    I'm quite sure you think that but for those of us who have some actual knowledge I would say that the opposite is true.

    ROFLMFAO. Bleats on about bandpass filters like he's an authority and that a 10m export used on 11m will have spurs on 10m because of a lack of a bandpass filter, says to use HF rigs on 11m which won't have a bandpass filter for the 11m band. In fact only when you start to get to mid-high end amateur HF radios do you start to see band pass filters for the amateur bands and even then it may not be for every single band.

    I did buy an export radio. It is a Kenwood TS-590SG. Last US company was Ten Tec. Now, no more US manufactures.

    Want a cookie?

    Now, go re-read my post at #20. I do say I don't recommend it. But if I had to choose between an export and an HF rig, HF rig all the way.

    Yep, I understand that there isn't any bandpass filtering on 11M in HF rigs. But neither is the problematic mixing scheme that is described in the video. Bet an HF rig doesn't produce the spur on 10M. Don't believe me? Well, why don't you take two of your HF rigs, put them side by side, and check it out, along with putting it on a spectrum analyzer. If it does produce a spur, let's see some video on it. Prove me wrong instead of hopping on your little soapbox.

    ~Cheers~
