Hi  Tom  and  the  group...In  my early  days  of  Ham radio  in Bangor
Maine  a bunch  of  guys  used  the 10 meter  version in our CD drills and
xmtr  hunts   along  with  some  guys  using  the Gonset Super 6
copnverter...We  were all  rock  bound on 29.520   CD  Fqs   The Transcom's
always  worked  well...
