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
When asked about White Supremacy, I do not believe in it, since most white people that I know are very much mediocre. Therefore, I believe in White Mediocracy.

Now that does look interesting!

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

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.
