I compared the R4020 to my Drake R8 and the QRP rig could hear everything the Drake could hear.
Not only that but my Idiom Press memory keyer works fine (just use a mono adaptor to fool the rig into thinking it’s seeing a straight key).
The filtering is way better than no filtering and isn’t all that bad in general but I am getting my SCAR-1 audio filter out of the accessory box in the basement.
The R40/20 at $250 has got to be the best buy in Amateur Radio.
Look if I can work three guys during a contest using the Tuna Tin 2 at 300 milliwatts there’s no telling what I can do with the Ten Tec at five watts.
See you on the air 🙂 —and don’t send too fast as I’m building up my speed. (I can do 25-28 wpm in a contest when I know what’s coming but ask me a question at anything faster than 18 wpm and I’m in trouble.)
This is one small rig. It’s sort of at the “Honey I shrunk the radio” size.
