Post TX500
Just seen the video from W and S on the newly arrived TX500 portable radio. Basically, a soundcard sized thing. Looks pretty neat, worth a second look, but...

1. No speaker! So, you either have to carry and use head phones or ear buds (which I hate) or use the supplied speaker mic (which means rubbish sound and a microphone. Most of my portable is cw only...I dont want to lug a mic). So, not really designed with cw ops in mind. What else will they have missed.

2. £900!

Looks good, but I'll pass this time.

All these climate issues are awful. I'm just so glad the cheap travel is back now, at least I can jet away and forget it all for a few weeks.

Can't see it selling in any quantity--just too expensive for what it is.
