Truth is that I probably will not invest any money this year. I can
proceed with what I have which is running my standard H/V switching
JT65 2m station (FT-847) and splitting off the 2m Rx signal to the
DEMI 144/28+SDR-IQ and running Linrad+MAP65iq. Not the ultimate
solution but should make random JT65 operating work pretty good.
I have other needs than just the ultimate eme Rx. The Flex-5000 and
K3 are pretty much the ultimate HF radios (but expensive). I am
preparing to get on 160m and 600m. The K3 attracts from the small
package that can go portable for mw. I may wait to see what develops
in the SDR area. Eventually, being able to run dual-pol into Linrad
is a 2m-eme goal.
On 1296 my single Rx system will work fine since CP is used. I will
be able to run CW/SSB/JT65 with Linrad and MAP65iq.
Waiting may be the smart move?
