      Hello all,

      Does anyone know of or have a favorite single-channel QRP transceiver for packet operations? Ideally, one that matches the phenomenal value of the Pi/TNC-X combo?

      This seems to be the only missing piece for wholesale assembly of inexpensive nodes for a packet network.

      (I'm thinking something that could be mast-mounted, even.)

      Matt: The first line got cutoff. The UHFSDR can be used as a single freq transceiver by changing the Si570 to a Si530 or Si590. They are available as free

                  Looks nice.

                  What's the RF (UHF Radio) spec? Re frequency agility purity etc, bearing
                  in mind there is a world market for these, so 430 to 440 MHz for UK/EU
                  markets for instance would be good.

                  Have you posted that link on the main APRS-IS list?
