Has anyone used one of the Xiegu (sp?) X1M QRP transceivers?
I'm pretty desperate to get on HF at this stage, and want a small/compact QRP transceiver. Elecraft are way out of my price league at the moment, as is an FT817.
I've seen mixed reviews of the X1M and I'm not sure how many of them were real issues with the radio, how many of these have been addressed in firmware revisions and how many were people just automatically dissing cheap Chinese transceivers without a realistic view of their limitations.
I've asked on a few websites if there are any 2nd hand ones on offer and not got any nibbles yet.
So, has anyone seen/used one?
