[TenTec] New Argosy!

A company in Bulgaria is building and selling a modern version of the Argosy.
It is called the RGO-ONE.

It is a single conversion transceiver using 2 Xtal filters; a 2.4 kHz first filter followed by an adjustable Jones filter.
It can run 5W or 50W output.

RGO-ONE Group:  https://groups.io/g/RGO-ONE 

Users seem to rave about its clean audio and quiet receiver.
However, once an Op gets used to radios with good DSP filters, he may find the RGO-ONE a bit lacking on selectivity.
It's as good as the argosy ever was, probably even better, but on a crowded band, you can certainly tell the difference.

I had one in my car for years and just plain wore it out.  While I did use it in the shack some on CW, it was used mostly for county hunting on SSB.  It was a terrific rig and wish I had one again.
