      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.)

                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?

                Regards.
