What do you want to do? The Jupiter is an older radio, but still very good. The Argo V is a newer rig, and is excellent also. The Jupiter is 100W, the Argo V 20W. They both cost around the same. (900). What type of operating will you do? CW, digital, SSB, etc. They are both firmware upgradeable. Both have excellent QSK, etc.

Excuse me?  They do not cost about the same.  The Jupiter is almost twice what the Argonaut V costs.

If you have a decent antenna...and  I am not talking about a yagi at 70 feet, the 20 watts from the Argonaut V will do quite well thanks. I have two of 'em and wouldn't be fooled twice.
