There wasn't, IMHO, that much exciting in the issue.
The review of the MXM Transceiver, of which I have two,
was complimentary to the rig but not much meat.

On page 45, there are two photographs of W8MVN!!! and
his setup. For those of you who didn't work him, at
least you can see what he looks like. :-)

The 15W transmitter is for 15 meters uses a 74HC240
for an oscillator. Don't know about you guys, but I
just can't see generating square waves for output
to a 7 pole Cheby filter to go to an antenna. It's
just not spectrally within the FCC requirements for
harmonic supression. I'll do the analysis and put
it in the K5FO Newsletter. And the phrase (and I quote)
"The following ten meter circuit values should work,
but there may still be a few bugs to iron out".
Don't think that I'd publish anything like that and
hope that I never have to eat my words if I do. :-)

I have probably wasted too much bandwidth already and
I apologize.
