I loved this Post! The use of the Rekeless was cool. And I enjoyed the LICW podcast!
Four Days in May, sounds fun! I can’t attend, but I’m hoping to see lots of video content from Thomas (hint hint)!
Thanks for this roundup, especially letting us know about the podcast.
I’m thinking that it would be good for QRP rigs that don’t have a speaker like QCX Mini.
I discovered another very handy feature of the Retekess v115… it can also record your qso’s while in auxiliary mode. A lot of handy features for a $22 external speaker… I mean digital recorder… I mean multi-band radio.
… I mean .mp3 player…
Wow–that’s an amazing bonus feature!
Thanks for sharing, Jamie!
I’ve been using mine for this for a while. Funny to hear I’m not the only one that feels it’s well suited to this. Works great with the (tr)u-sdx as well. The one I have is quite old, and is under the Tivdio brand, but still works great@
