Hi Colin,

I did read the QEX article last summer, unfortunately the developer has decided not to take it into production. See the top right paragraph on P.39:
"it seems unlikely there will be a significant production run..."

Absolutely no surprise there --

It would have been a legendary receiver in the late 90's -

but its time has come and gone... as has most of SW Broadcasting...
for now... :-)

There are many amateur radio transceivers that perform well --

Like my ICOM 703+ or Kenwood TS-480SAT
