2e0bvj working special event station TM60ANT in France on 20 metres with the Xiegu X6100. 10 watts into my home brew fishing pole vertical mounted around 10 feet above ground level..
Listening to a short QSO on 40 metres with the new Xiegu X6100. Be aware this is a pre-production version and not all features are available in these rigs..
A rather longer video here, i was trying to work RZ3DW near Moscow in Russia. Patience finally paid off after waiting so long.. FFWD to around 7 minutes if you want to see the the actual QSO.. Thank you for watching and 73 for now from 2e0bvj
WHAT’S NEW FROM X5105 TO X6100?
1. Analog – SDR Radio
Software-defined radio (SDR) system uses software for the modulation and demodulation of radio signals. Processing via a computer or other digital devices with software, the X6100 can provide you more info in real-time, complete complex operations and process data faster.
2. 5W Upgrade to 10W High Power
From 5W to max 10W, the Xiegu X6100 is a more powerful RIG than the X5105. In general, a higher wattage allows for greater range. Working with the XPA125B power amplifier, the X6100 can meet your long-rang talking requirement.
