FLEX-1500 USED BARGAIN!
There's a lot of people out there who remain very happy with their analogue radios but quite fancy dipping their toes into the pool of SDR Transceivers. They don't, however, fancy paying big bucks for the privilege. And who can blame them - SDR technology has really shot up in price due to the world economy and the ongoing silicon chip shortage. Thankfully, there's a very cheap option and it's also a really very good one too - the FLEX-1500 160-6M Transceiver.
The central portion of the screen provides enough space to display a working map of the world and still have space for the panadaptor. On the left side are the often used buttons and sliders for quick adjustment. On the opposite side are the Band and Mode buttons. Many buttons have left and right click options.
The lower section of the screen contains a host of other controls and any one of these panels can be relocated to give you the layout of your choosing. The level of customisation is incredible.
PowerSDR includes an Audio Recorder (or a QSO Recorder as I like to call it). It's possible to not only record an active QSO, but also re-transmit it.
Rather strangely, PowerSDR also has a feature called TX WaterID which transmits your CallSign in such a way that it appears on the waterfall for all to see. It obviously has no practical value as far as I can see and I'm not even sure that it would be legal to use it - but it's there.
