i think your missing the point on export rigs if your expecting them to outperform a built for the purpose modern am
radio by the same company, all exports have weaknesses,that broadbanded flexible mode radio has many corners cut a single mode monoband radio doesn't have too.its all about profit and compromise.
why don't you stick to your 520xl for am
, i have a european president harry am
based on that chassis,great little radio,does 120 ch am
if you want to open it up,but without ssb
that seems pointless. use your grant and jackson on ssb
where they are really designed for,you might just appreciate how good they can really be. if your not into ssb
then you'd be better flogging them and buying another am
only radio if your so pernickity about tx
if your really fussy about a top class radio,look out for a cpi cp2000, beautiful radios.would kill to get one here and mod it/retune for high band use.20 years ago if i could have afforded one i'd have had it set up for low low band around 26.285 as back then i did most dx on the lower end of 26 mhz.fcc
40 or midband is too full of qrm for my liking.
