As the title states I’m against these radios that come 12/10m with solely AM/FM. There is no conceivable reason to have them. It simply puts a flashing neon light on top of the radio as 24.89~24.99 then 28.0~29.70 means sure the radio covers all in between. I agree that radios with SSB/CW sure why not add 12m but in what’s just a AM/FM radio then start at 25.000 or just a small amount up from 24.990
Hope that this answers the mails I’ve got in past days about why I’m against it. It’s personal opinion of course but that’s my reason.
AM/FM/SSB/CW Yes 24.8 Upwards
AM/FM No 25.0 Upwards
I’d not advertise it as 12/10m as it is absolutely not needed, not wise, not smart idea.
Just advertise it as a “10 metre AM FM” then keep option inside and not advertised
Why No SSB?
Again it rises people all upset, keyboard warriors residing behind fake names and often bossed over by wives and girlfriends where they sit trying to rule the world in a bedroom behind an apron and a keyboard.
President Known to be expensive. Let’s imagine they’d release President Richard SSB for €299. All that happens is people moan about price, moan that it isn’t “exactly” how they want it and all say my CRT, Intek, Anytone, Cobra whatever it be is the same or cheaper.. So why bother? Most of the keyboard big mouths don’t spend just talk so no need to make stuff that don’t sell. Like it or not some companies are resellers only with no engineers but President, Dazz, Midland employ engineers so prices are more as changes needed and not one size fits all sales mentality used.
