Title: Lab599 Discovery TX-500? Yeah, I want one!

Damn!!!! This looks like something that you'd might expect from Harris RF.     https://lab599.com/       And, of course, revisit where I've read about this,    https://swling.com/blog/2021/05/updates-return-of-the-lab599-discovery-tx-500-qrper-com-and-youtube/#comment-666430

Now that does look interesting!

Still looks like vaporware at the moment, but there's hope. The Rx efficiency is impressive (100mA)

Ham Radio Outlet is shipping them.  One of the local hams has one, got it last week.

How does he / she like it?   I'll have to go hunt for a review.

I donít know; he hasnít posted anything yet.  He briefly showed it during the last club meeting (a VTC in lieu of an in person meeting).  I agree, it looks very interesting and I want to know more too.
