I've been "scouting" for a while for useful modifications or add-ons for the 
Scout 555 and/or Argo 556.  I asked about this on the QRP-L list (where people 
modify everything in sight :-) and got very few responses.  Of course, this 
speaks well for the rigs.  However, there must be ideas that people have come 
with for customizing the rigs or overcoming some of their quirks...?

I've done some minor mods to my Scout, such as adding an external power switch, 
and adding an internal connector so that I can bypass the final PA to make it 
temporarily a QRP Argo.

If I get many responses, I'll post a summary to the list.

Thanks and 73,
