A review of the Xiegu G90 general coverage transceiver
« on: September 02, 2020, 1908 UTC »
The Chinese stuff is making more attractive head-ways. And for around $470.00, it's hard to turn something like this down. https://swling.com/blog/2020/09/a-review-of-the-xiegu-g90-general-coverage-transceiver/
Question is, how does it do to fight IMD and strong signal overload? I don't like that it doesn't really have a convenient RF Gain Control up front, but that's nit-pickin'. Even for under $500.00, I'd want to wait and find out if it can take the test of time.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

I have noticed some of the US retailers are selling these now, which would make me feel a bit better if I were in the market for one. I know a guy who has one, but he's not a serious HF operator, so its hard to ask him for performance details. The positives so far seem to be the band scope and auto tuner. Too bad it doesn't cover 6m also. Oh well,you cant have it all I guess. I personally would stick with one of the top 3 manufactures.
