You have just described my beloved Corsair II. Hi Hi...
> Well, this is interesting. I think that for a $1200 dollar rig, we could
> start by looking at what makes Ten Tec different--great basic receiver
> performance. Create an uncrunchable front end with high level mixers [either
> passive or active], use a solid single conversion design, and offer 2 real
> good crystal filters--one for SSB, one for CW.
> It needs great QSK, a great CW note, good selectivity, great dynamic range,
> good audio and an ergonomnic layout.
> What isn't absolutely necessary would be DSP, general coverage receive, second
> VFO or built-in antenna tuner [not that any TT rigs have this anyway].
> The second VFO and DSP might be nice, but the general coverage receive
> wouldn't, in my opinion.
> This is fun!
