Rick, since the Eagle can stand up under European conditions wouldn't
the Argonaut VI also? It's under $1K. It seems the receiver sections
of Eagle and Argonaut are very similar in design and component
compliment. I have both and cannot tell a bit of difference in receiver
performance. Of course I don't live in Europe. :-) Maybe you are
only considering radios in current production. OK.....hoping the
Argonaut comes back but we will have to wait for that verdict.

I have an LD-5 on the desk now and expect an LD-11 in about 2 weeks.
This is as cool as Dick Tracy's watch phone was back in the 1940!
The LD-5 can be used on 40m at night here in Europe on a full size
multi-band dipole, even with its pre-amp on . . . WITHOUT
So can the Eagle and the K3, etc. but I know of no radio costing under
$1K that can do that - except the LD-5.
I assume the LD-11 and KX-2 will join the LD-5.
THIS IS A QUANTUM LEAP IN TECHNOLOGY for the low end (cost wise)
