Hi guys...I am looking at the Ten Tec Scout quite seriously and have a few
quick questions from users. I like to primarily rag chew an even mix of SSB
and CW (with a straight key). I run an indoor dipole for 10 and 15 and am
wondering how does the Scout do with keeping harmonics down and RFI? The
dipole is in an adjacent attic area of my operating position (but a safe
distance), so does an RF-rich environment affect the Scout? I used to own a
SG 2020 but got rid of it. While it kept RFI down and was good on SSB, CW
was not good at all, and that's an important part of my operating style. I
like the Scout's receiver specs and testimonials I have read, but was
wondering if you would buy another and still consider it a good value. I
know some other new rigs in the price range offer more bells and whistles
and bands as they say, but are you all generally pleased with the Scout?
Please feel free to e-mail me direct off the reflector or on it -- but I
thank you ahead of time for your help. PS -- the band modules do not bother
me at all.

Say Bye to Slow Internet!
