I find the Argo-556 to be a very nice QRP rig. Last fall, in two weekends
totaling 48 hours of operation (ARCI and CWSS contests) I made 1064 CW QSO's
with mine, using only a wire windom antenna between two 45' trees. I did
swap modules a lot, but with no ill effects. Since those weekends, I have
made another 220 CW QSO's with the Argo while mobile (using KW Hustler
antennas), and numerous others from my fixed QTH.
The compact Argo and Jones filter are fun to use.. Swapping the modules a
lot does not seem to hurt the radio or modules.
