I have one of these on order and it looks very promising.

Up to 20 watts out, and a built-in ATU.

881

Much excitement on the Xiegu Facebook group!

I've been keeping my eye on that. It looks like a very interesting bit of kit.

Will you give us a review once you have it?

Yes.Will do. I haven't transmitted with more than 5 watts for years, so it will be interesting to see what 20 watts can do.

The G90 will be available from Sinotel sometime within the next fortnight.

You are going to love the G90 and its 20 watt output. My reports are only one S unit down from full power with my FT891. The difference between 5 watts and 20 watts are significant as you will be able to reliably make multi-thousand kilometer contacts even in bad conditions. You can also run digital at pretty high power due to the strong finals rating (40watts). It is also light enough to do man portable SOTA. It has a robust metal case with guards and runs quite a few hours on just a 5 amp battery. In addition, it is always being firmware upgraded as new features are added. This radio goes everywhere with me including international flights. Highly recommended.
