Hi Ed and gangue,
I built the 40 meter Ten Tec kit. It is the most solid performing qrp
rig that I own. (Others HW-8, 38 Special, a myriad of home-brews, and
an Emtech 8020 (not finished).
It sounds good on transmit and receive. Audio from the built-in speaker
is excellent, as is that from 8 ohm stereo phones. The tuning is smooth
and repeatable. The rit works without problem. Filtering is without
ringing. Break-in is perfect as is side tone. There is no thumping, no
microphonics, no drift, no problem. Volume control works better than it
does on my Omni VI.
I have about 70 kHz of the bottom of the 40 meter band. The filter is
tight enough for me. I have not been annoyed with anything on this
rig. It worked from the get go and still does.
Hope this helps.
