Don, I have the ARGO 556, the QRP clone of your Scout 555 and rest assured
you did not buy the wrong rig. The receiver on the Scout/Argo's are very
good. The Jones filter works and works well. The noise blanker takes out
the electric fence at this QTH. If I can hear them, I can almost work
everyone of them at five watts and my GAP vertical.
All Reflectors are like Henny Penny, you know The Sky is Falling. Use your
Scout and make up your mind, it is a very good rig.
