This thing is hitting a home run, they’re already giving a headache to all the Xiegu, Elecraft and the like portable rig makers.
BTW I had suggested one guy at Xiegu I had exchanged emails with on what to engineer to get the real deal, but they did only 1/2 the job sadly.
Finally a rig with weatherproofing.
These guys know what the S/P/B/JOTA (and so on) need to get on the air in the field. 73 all de ha7wx chris
I must admit: I want one for the weatherproofing aspects. In the spring and summer here in the mountains of western NC, rain showers can pop up from nowhere. Always sends me into a panic. I actually had a shower pop up on me with the TX-500 and no worries!
