Administrator K3MRI Posted October 15, 2022 Administrator Share Posted October 15, 2022 Say you have the money to, right now, buy one of the highest-end HF transceivers on the market, which one would you buy, right now? I've compiled a list of the top five radios. The prices, interestingly, range from about four thousand to thirteen thousand dollars; that's quite the spread. So here is my listing and don't forget to vote on the poll. Comments, of course, welcome. I would be especially curious as to why you like or do not like a specific radio.
