Re: QSX radio feature requests

Hi Alan, all
I am enjoying the discussion on LF, VHF proposals. All nice ideas and perhaps in time, some can be made reality.
It is useful to remind ourselves that designing and producing a 10-band 160 to 10m all-mode radio kit is not exactly a trivial task. It is not easy even for a large company with large teams of proper electronic engineees at their disposal.
The task does not become any easier when you are planning to deliver very high performance and a long list of functionality, and simultaneously at a very low price.
Nothing even CLOSE to this level of perfomance-and-features to price ratio has EVER before been offered. Nothing like this is available now, nor ever has been.
QSX will be a first. The task is very very difficult already. If this was easy at least someone would have done it already. So I'd like to keep it initially as described, 160-10m.
However, I have already designed in expansion capabilities, both in hardware and in software; and there is physical space available.
Therefore whilst an all-in-one-box walking talking 2200m to 2m all-mode transceiver with 7-inch graphic OLED screen and a rear panel full of different connectors and interfaces is not likely to be possible at this price... I CAN imagine future expansion modules, and/or future QSX variants, which do cover many of the requests and ideas.
