I find it interesting that folks are talking about Ten Tec "re-entering"
the qrp world. The new rig will be in production within 4 or 5 months of
the last 556 Argo. Ten Tec never left qrp. (the argonauts were replaced by
the qrp Delta which was replaced by the 556 which is now being replaced by
the new rig) Perhaps it would be better to say that Ten Tec is replacing a
good quality but aging, older design, qrp rig with an up to date design . I
guess the Argo was seen as a bit too big (?) for a serious qrp rig?
