A new 70MHz mono-band radio from Noble Radio
Rob, PE9PE got in touch to let me know about the new 70MHz mono-band rig from Noble Radio
The rig produces 10W out – you can see a full list of the specs here
The rig is priced at EU499 in the Netherlands, including 21% Dutch VAT.
I’ve asked Rob if there are plans to distribute the rig in the UK and what the price will be. I’ll update this post accordingly when I find out. The PDF also mentions a 50MHz variant, but I’m guessing that the 70MHz will be of immediately more interest.
Updated: Rob PE9PE replied to say that the rig is available direct from the Netherlands and comes with a 2 year warranty.
Australia looks set to get 70mhz after the next WARC 2015 meeting, would love one of these rigs for SSB on 70mhz…
UPDATE ON 70MHZ BAND, sadly the ACMA has not allocated Australian HAMS a 70MHZ allocation, even though the 66mhz to 88mhz band is largely un allocated but for a hand full of services
