Gordon you have missed my point by focusing on what you call "disparagement". My "disparagement" is an attempt to inform those who expect to take the radio out of the box, connect it up and operate compliantly as is advertised. That is simply not going to happen.
If your IC-718 were presented in its brochure as being able to switch frequencies and bands five times per second then I would be calling that claim garbage as well. It is not represented that way.
Your "disparagement" is my "information". If you, in good conscience and with all you now know about the uBitx, can say you recommend it as a first or only rig to someone just starting in this hobby and without test equipment or the knowledge how to use it, then we indeed disagree.
Similar charge for that advice. LOL. Have a great day!
