  1. 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)!

  2. 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.

  3. 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@
