The trouble with IC-706's, TS-50's et-al is THEY AREN'T SIMPLE. For that
matter, the Scout isn't very simple either. Microprocessors and SMT
components have made it almost impossible for the average ham to service
his own equipment. What I would like to see is something on the order of a
scaled down version of a Triton VI. Here's what I want.

1. 9 CW bands
2. Tuneable front end (preselector)
3. PTO (no pll's)
4. 500hz cw filter (xtal ladder)
5. CW only (no ssb)
6. Band switch
7. 50 to 100 watts
8. QSK (click free and fast) 
9. Sidetone with a real sine wave tone
10.Rugged case
11.Size of a Scout
