Post Got the Apache 8000LE 'itch'
I've been more than happy with my ANAN 100D which I've recently upgraded to the latest FW to support gigabit connectivity and Thetis, but the new 8000 certainly looks very interesting - but can't really justify having the 100D and 8000 in the shack.

Which begs the question, do I sell the 100D and upgrade or stick with the 100D ?

Always a little wary of being a 'first adopter' / guinea pig but Apache labs seem to know what they're doing.

Patience is a virtue with new products unless you are the kind of guy who must be the first to have everything. Let someone else iron out the bugs and lose their hair :) But it certainly seems to be a nice rig! I am into LF at the moment and the best reports I get from the US on 136kHz are from a chap (N1BUG) with a £20 Softrock modded for LF on the end of a Beveridge designed for other frequencies and running in a none optimal direction.... Other stations with some really expensive gear and dedicated LF aerials rarely hear me. It's a funny old hobby!
