New Hf rig

I just bought the Alinco Dxsr8t Hf Radio. Everybody I talked to says it has outstanding transmit audio. Even better than my Yaseau Ft450. This is a great radio and priced reasonably. I give it a 10 out of a 10.

New Station setup

I'm working on a portable setup in Ia. City. My other qth. I bought a 75-10 meter g5rv. 105 ft. long. trees at this lot are not tall enough. I need to measure the lot might have enough room to make an inverted V.Also my rig is a Kenwood ts 440 s. It needs to go to kenwood service center for repair, The dreaded dots on the display. It can be fixed for around $ 100.00. the Tcoxo is bad.Was told to send it to the repair center east in Virginia Beach.
