The IC7200 has an IF DSP and a built-in sound card and USB support, which is why I recommend it over the TS480SAT. If you need an antenna tuner the LDG IT-100 ($160) is fully compatible with the IC7200 and operates with the radio's tuner control circuits.

Sometimes wonder whether I should have just stayed on CB or 11m free banding. They certainly appear to be having more fun with radio here on 11m in the UK than amateurs do. There certainly seems to be more than a fair share of miserable old gits in amateur radio and I hear the same or worse DQRM on the amateur bands in comparison to 11m.

Woke up at 3 AM, couldn't get back to sleep, and found you guys on 40 meter phone.  Good signal here in TN, easy.  Spent most of the day working on a new wire beam for Tromelin, but hopped on just now for 17 meter CW too.  Hope to pick a few more bands later on.  It's an ATNO for me.  Thanks again.

All three of them did not raise an eyebrow and when it was over one of them pulled out his cell phone and said this is all the ham radio I need! No excitement or interest was shown... I was so upset not so much that they did not find it exciting but that to me our younger generation has lost that wondrous spirit... Then I asked myself is this hobby really going extinct?"

Welcome to my world. My nephew couldn't care less about ham radio. I've done the same thing.

But to play the devil's advocate, are any of us "excited" about light bulbs or running water or the wheel? Isn't it sortof the same thing? If technology advances far enough what came before isn't fascinating any longer.  Sad

WS3N,

It saddens me to have to say that I personally am giving up on this thread.
I write it off as hopeless from here onward.
Perhaps you may agree with my assessment that a couple guys just seem to be incapable of a real conversation in spite of AA6YQ's consistently stable posts.

In your post#286 directed to KD8MJR...

I simply don't understand why you take this so personally, even going so far as to say you will follow him on every forum to "make sure to tell people exactly what kind of person you really are."
I wondered at length about the same thing and, from where I sit, the only way I see it is that envy towards AA6YQ's success seems to be the driving force.
Sort of like an electronic form of "road-rage" is at play here, hum?
What has this to do with ham-radio?
That's not why I took up the hobby; that's why I find this so distasteful; that's why I'm leaving this thread.

In your post#291 again directed to KD8MJR...

I have my disagreements with Stan but at least he seems willing to "man up" when it's called for.
To his eternal credit, I agree with your writing about K9IUQ.

I was licensed in 2009.  YK was not even on my radar in 2010!  Am I going to jump off a bridge because of it?  No.  I'm letting YK age a bit like a good wine should Grin

That is so true, I remember in my first year and the only thing that I was interested in was distance Grin  If I had heard Navassa I would have probably spun the dial to once again try for China.  I was such a Dx boob back then  Grin

I don't mind SSB pileups but I dread CW pileups.

I was just like you not too long ago.  Now I'm a CW convert and believer.  Look for my PM.

73,
Jonathan W6GX

Ok I will look out for it.  Thanks Jonathan

Regarding my issue with HRDSoftware, LLC ---

The matter of my open Trouble Ticket is no longer an issue for this or any other thread on eHam or on any other amateur radio forum. After numerous emails over the past two days between myself and Mike WA9PIE, he now has a very clear understanding of the nature of my issue. Furthermore, he has apologized for the confusion and delay (I think I have been watching too much Thomas the Tank Engine with my grandchildren!) in resolving the issue. Furthermore, Mike has made himself the sole point of contact for this issue.

This all started when I looked at the Trouble Ticket and I noticed that the status had been changed from open to closed even though the issue was not resolved and that is when I flew off the handle and made the remarks I made in this thread. As it turns out, it was closed by mistake and the status has been put back to open.

Now that Mike and I have corresponded at some length, my respect for at least one person at HRDSoftware, LLC has changed immensely. Mike was dealing with a very angry and upset customer over the weekend but he never turned his back on me despite the tone of some of my emails. In the end, we even swapped a few really bad jokes!

I believe we are on the right track in terms of resolving my issue which, as it turns out, does not appear to be unique to my station configuration, my brand and model of radio or any "interfacing" circuitry between the radio and computer.

So I will end this post the way I opened by saying that my issue with Ham Radio Deluxe is no longer an issue for this or any other thread, whether you own or work for HRDSoftware, LLC or not. If you do own or work for HRDSoftware, LLC and are interested in resolving my issue, please communicate with Mike through your company's internal communication channels.

Dave said he was going to email them and find out the Truth. (still waiting)

I did send email, but received no response.
