Hello,

 Because of the mailing list server changeover, I waited an extra day to
post the results of the questionnaire. I hope everyone had an opportunity
to offer a vote and comments.
 Thanks to those who participated. Your good ideas and your help is
appreciated.

Voting Results of the INET Rig Questionnaire

1 Vote Count Topic
..................................................
 1 Should we copy an "older Production" design?
 0 Should we modify an "older production" design?
17 Should we design using modern techniques?
 8 Should the design be simple and uncomplicated?
 9 Should the design be complex with added
features?

MODE
 6 CW
 1 SSB
13 CW/SSB
 5 other (digital/RTTY)

BANDS
16 HF
10 VHF
 3 UHF
 3 Combo

*****

 The poll showed strong support for CW/SSB radio incorporating new
technology. (MODE both -13/new tech 17) CW takes second while
RTTY and/or digital modes hold third. (CW-6/RTTY*Digital-5)
  The numbers favor the HF band, with VHF a very close second place.
(HF-16/VHF-10)
  As the design scheme unfolds, we need to decide the
simple/uncomplicated vs more complex/added features question (8 vs 9).

So, here we go with the next step.
73, and thanks.
