If you’ve been reading a while you’ll know that over a year ago when CommRadio out of Colorado announced the CTX-10 I got very excited. Although a long time coming, it looks to be ready for prime time.
They’ve been building what looks to be the best QRP Field Radio possibly ever offered to the Amateur Radio Community. Most attractive is the fact that with its small size, internal tuner and three internal batteries, one could operate for a long period of time carrying little ancillary equipment other than feedline and your antenna. But not only that, with its machined housing and knobs, ruggedness is at a premium.
At $1000 shipped, this rig may not be cheap new but definitely looks worth the cost, especially when compared to some of its competitors. This is a rugged American-made rig. With any luck I’ll have one for review once they’re out.
