External speaker for R75
« on: July 17, 2014, 0149 UTC »
I've had my R75 for a while now (18 months I think) but I often don't use it because its tiny little speaker sucks & I don't always want to put on headphones because I can't hear whats going on around me when I have them on (I take care of my dad & need to be able to hear him). I bought an Icom sp-33 external speaker for the rig & now I use it constantly. It really has revitalized my dx'ing. The funny thing is that I've had the damn thing for more than a year but had somehow overlooked it. I bought a bunch of radio gear all at once when I had a bunch of money & just sort of forgot about it. I wonder what else I have that I forgot about?

I know the feeling.  Was considering putting my pcr1000 up for sale because I hadn't used it in forever, but when I hooked it up to make sure it still worked I was very happy to discover not only did it still work but was much more fun to play with than the 7600gr.

Here is a nice portable speaker that can be used for DX-peditions.
