The Jupiter is an intriguing rig. The trait that I am most interested in is
ease of use. How intuitive is it to operate? I really don't care for radios
with tons of menus, cryptic buttons, and non-intuitive procedures to work
them. I have sold several 2m mobile and HT rigs for just this reason. I
currently have an Icom 706IIG. I've learned how to work it for day to day
needs, but to access all the other features requires the operators manual
within reach. Ten-Tec advertises the Jupiter as simple to operate. The pics
I've seen would seem to confirm this.
So, how about it, new Jupiter owners. Can you understand and operate this
radio without looking at the operations manual?
Keep your bells and whistles. I'm hankering from a solid, easy to use radio.
I fear I'll have to go back to an 80s vintage radio or analog to achieve
Thanks for your input.
