I will have to check it out, my bitx40 is more of a on the shelf or table, while i think the slopbucket begs to be taken portable.
And right now my bitx 40 has an analogue vfo, I am certain 60 will involve chips and software at least. Do you has a link to the drop dead simple solution? Who knows, maybe a 40 meter slop bucket could have that as well?
Either way, if Steve makes another slop bucket run I will definitely buy at least one.
