"I had completed the transceiver last sunday and it worked right at the first instance! Marvellous kit!
It was very good of you to feature the extra speaker outlet: I attached an external mini speaker box (a 5 Euro asset, commonly being sold as a computer accessory). It really makes a huge difference in terms of acoustics and readability and I'll make the weekender serve as my favourite "base station".
Best regards,
Florian - DL1FN"
