We're all on a budget mate, sign of the times I'm afraid.
Best to save a bit longer and get something with a good reputation. That way your not looking at getting something else in 2 months cause your not happy with it.
Just my opinion of course.

Re: Advice On Setup?


Luck Is NOT Going To Come Into My Purchase Just Because This First Time I Am Setting Up Once Again Doesnt Mean That I Will Be Buying a New Radio Because There Has Been Problems With My First Choice.

This First Radio I Will Purchase Will Only Be Temp Radio, As I Intend Later This Or Even Next Year To Purchase A Bigger Radio (Icom Ic Radio) Of Some Sort And Beam Antenna.

I Am Not Exactly In a Rush....

Re: Advice On Setup?


So after spending quite some time thinking about a new radio i have decided to go with this.

Kenwood TS-450 SAT HF Transceiver.

Image

Going to cost just around £450 but the down side is i will have to wait for a month before getting the rest of the setup.

Aluminum Pole, Antenna, Brackets, Bolts, Cable, Power Supply.

However i am prepared to wait and in the mean time i would appreciate some suggestions on a suitable power supply to compliment the radio. emoticon

Was this the HF radio on ebay with faults as you previously posted spac3monk3y ?

I use a Watson as below

but it depends on what else you might plan to run from it, you may require something bigger, checkout the following thread below you may pick up some ideas.
