Eric and others...
I haven't looked at the 303i.
Actually I haven't looked at winradio specs in 3 or 4 years.
With the RX320 at $300 and Linrad, I'm happy for HF and PC.
I'll do some more research on the PCR1000. My main interst in it
is for coverage that the 320 doesn't have. I was not aware of
any control bugs and will do a little more research.
I found the command set in rooting around with google and there
is a linux control package for it.
I was wondering at all the talk about downloading and restoring
the firmware. Why? Perhaps you've provided the answer :-)
If I find a PCR1000 for the $259 advertised at HRO (out of stock)
I'll buy and write up a review.
