RE: [linrad] The Eagle Has Landed
I recognize the top board as the 2.5 MHz > Baseband board, but
is that the 10.7 MHz > 2.5 MHz board underneath? I didn't see
that is was being made available for sale yet.

In answer to your questions about when the RX2500 will be available, I
am very happy to announce that the RX2500 has arrived here today! It
was held up for a couple of days in a 'security check beyond UPS
control' in Germany, but once it cleared that hurdle itr got here very
It looks beautiful on the outside, and I have put a JPG of the innards
of the RX2500 on my website at: http://www.qsl.net/w3sz/RX2500.jpg .
Beautiful inside and outside!
I am packing up to go to Microwave Update where I will show it off, but
I will not let anybody else touch it ;)
I can't wait to get back home and play with it.
If I can get back early Sunday maybe I can play with it this weekend
during the contest, depending upon the timing of moon rise and set
Sunday. If not, I will wait for the 2nd leg of the ARRL contest which
after all is not that far away.
I am very seriously considering not transmitting this year but just
listening, so I can get maximal experience with the unit and the other
receive toys I have here, and record some good "S" files uninterrupted
with transmitter noise. Well, I guess will make at least one EME
contact so I can get a certificate. I can spare 30 seconds to do that
Otherwise, it will probably be receive all the way...
