I am using one I have the 4GB model with XP Use microHam CW Keyer for
CAT interface and keying. I have over 1.3GB free. after I mounted
Software is Win-Test ( for most contests I have used both a full
sized USB keyboard and the Asus one. But when using the Asus I
reconfigured the keys to use '.' and ',' instead of '+' and 'ins'
For IOTA we used SDI this year.
The screen is small but OK for trips and /P etc. At home I just plug in
a USB LCD screen but I find you get used to it.
I have a SD card I plug in for an extra gig or just use a USB stick.
Its pretty fast - no disk drive!
I have not used it for digi modes but I don't see why it shouldnt be fine.
It seems very reliable even at 30+C! And you can use the built in WiFi
for network use too.
