So WHERE is the link to the “UHF/VHF Weekender Transceiver Kit by Martin M1MRB”? This isn’t the first time I’ve asked a question like this about the ICQ Podcast. It seems like the ICQ Podcast puts a “Tease” topic in the title, then they DO NOT provide a link to the actual product/topic! Is this supposed to get us to listen/download the whole Podcast in order to get the actual content they tout in the title? If so, it’s really lame. If not, it’s just irresponsible publication.
I believe this UHF/VHF Weekender Transceiver Kit is old news. It’s just a packaging of a DORJI818 type module from China(?) There are good and bad things about this module from what I’ve read in the years since it’s been out. Anyway here’s the Dorji link:
It seems you can buy the kit here (I dunno if this is the developer’s site) for around $72 USD:
Anyway, my rant isn’t about the radio, it’s about the ICQ Podcast. If you’re going to publish a Podcast, the for goodness sake publish a complete list of links that go with it!
