Argonaut V (516) HF Transceiver.

Ten-Tec Argonaut V (516), HF Transceiver

THIS TRASCEIVER DOES EXTREMLY WELL ON FIGHTING QRM AND QRN. THE FILTERING IS TOP NOTCH. THE FILTERING IS JUST AS GOOD AS YOU CAN FIND ON THE NEWEST RIGS. THE TRANSMIT AUDIO IS WONDERFUL WITH THE HAND MIC FROM TEN TEC. I USED THE HEIL HM-10 DUAL MICROPHONE ON MINE. THE HM-10 DROVE IT HARDER. I LOVED USING THIS RIG ON CW. IT WAS A DREAM. I USED 5 WATTS OR LESS,HOWEVER WITH 20 WATTS IT WAS NOT FAR DOWN FROM A 100 WATT RIG. THE BEAUTY OF THIS RIG INSIDE AND OUT WILL JUST AMAZE YOU. IT IS SOLID AS A ROCK. THE DISPLAY IS EASY TO READ. I USED MINE AT THE BEACH BACK IN 2008. I MADE MANY WONDERFUL QSO'S. THIS RIG IS A KEEPER. JUST TRY AND FIND ONE FOR SELL. IF YOU FIND ONE HOLD ON TO IT. YOU WILL BE AMAZED.
