Hat tip to Brickolore

More photos, videos, and what little info seems to be available is there on the last few days of his blog.

I'm still interested to see what becomes of the Xiegu X1MkII but this looks kinda neat in it's own way.  Obviously built into a mobile radio chassis for easy mobile installation. Looks like it has full computer control though so might make an inexpensive QRP platform for someone looking to try out an SDR or computer controlled transceiver.

It's apparently available as a kit but not as an assembled radio at this point.

Wonder how "clean" it transmits.

I saw that too. I thought it would make one heck of a stand alone digital rig

I think I'd save my shackles and get a K1 for that price.  That and I would like to have one each of the ELecraft rigs

You can buy a used FT817 for not much more than that, and don't have to wonder or build it. Plus you get all bands instead of HF only. On the plus side this thing puts out 10W to the 5W of the yaesu. That being said I know which one I'd buy...

EBay. Ham classifieds etc. Most used ham stuff on ebay the sellers are smoking crack selling, i.e. used for $50 off new. But you can find deals, just set a limit on what you are willing to pay. I got the 817 for ~300 a year or two back,  and I got a ft897 for $450  as well. The seller said it was flaky on HF, I gambled and turns out it needed 2 seconds of soldering on the HF connector to fix it....

Where's the massive cast-aluminum spinner knob?

If it's a HF radio, it HAS to have a big spinner knob - with a finger dimple in it!

Or Piccalo can post a pic of his rig.  Or there are others.
