Because of my challenged hearing loss, I benefit hugely from DSP/High Sensitivity/Noise Reduction algorithms. I am interested in connecting with flex users who have used this radio in a mobile installation- mainly because it operates on 13.8VDC and does not require a power inverter for use. Im interested in how this gear can handle being stored in a vehicle or operate in a wide variety of temperatures. For example a 10 degree day (F) or a 95 degree day. (F) What is most valuable to me is modification of receive bandwidth, filtering, noise reduction... so I can hear the weak ones using a mobile antenna setup. I would be installing this in a rack unit in a wheelchair van. Thats why I am interested in the a higher end unit like this. (ARRL insurance to be purchased of course) My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I want to reduce number of wires in an installation by reducing peripheral accessories, and I like the idea of variations by software rather than external preamps and such. Simplicity.
