Dayton 2013: Contest University
Contest Radio Performance
By Rob Sherwood, NC0B
For the 5th year in a row, Rob was invited to give a presentation on transceiver performance at Contest University.
This year the presentation was streamed over the Internet, giving me my first opportunity ever to actuall watch his presentation. This is even better than listening to the audio files.
The downside is, there probably won't be any audio files available. The video file is simply too huge to publish on the internet. For that reason we only have Rob's slides.
- Hilberling PT-8000 @ $18,000
- Kenwood TS-990 @ $8,000
- Fex 6000 @ $4,300 TO $7,500

THIS PRESENTATION IS AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE (SEE BELOW)
This is the full presentation Rob Gave at CTU 2013. It shows snapshots of some of the newest transceivers on the market, and as usual, points out some of the weaknesses of these and most other radios
