... it would be great if someone like DEM would work with them and come out with a full coverage transverter package.That would be really attractive personally. In all honesty one worries that they will buy a bunch of pricey gear that just doesn't quite work right or play well with each other, especially if you do not have somebody to elmer you through the learning curve.
I'd be really happy to buy "satellite kits" of stuff known to work well - maybe a series of kits like:
- Basic Transverter Kit
- Multi-Band Transverter Kit
- Basic Satellite Software Kit
- Portable Antenna Kit (or an Omni Antenna Kit - something to get you going)
- Antennas with Az-El Rotator with Software Kit(s)
- and so on....
I could see myself buying in, and then buying upwards as I learned & mastered each "kit" - provided I can replenish my radio fund quick enough.
Would be excellent if FRS endorsed the packages after some basic quality checks, even if they didn't sell them directly at FRS's store.
Basically I'd be willing to pay the going rate if I knew I wasn't in the dark buying gear that just doesn't quite work well or lacks the expansion to be a long term part of the shack.
Now if each kit came with tutorials and resources... yeah!!
Here is a dream... That one day maybe FRS or someone could make an ad-on dual transverter made just for SmartSDR and the 6000 series radios.
I could see this as a FlexRadio Exclusive product. Maybe called a “SmarTransverter”?
would be just a few of the basic
that would be important to me.
- A true Dual Wide Band smart transverter that is designed just for the 6000 series flex radios and SmartSDR.
- Minimum 75 to 100W RF Output @ %100 duty cycle.
- Made to look like the rest of the current 6000 radio line and also the ability to rack mount.
OK to dream a little.;)
