comments by BG8HT on the X1MKII:

新机进入新阶段。
这个项目真实庞大,其复杂程度超出我的预料,还好进展顺利。
等新机发布后,预计短时间内不会再做这样的便携机了,说不定未来几年之内都是行业标杆。

Below is my translation:

The project turned out too be very big. The complexity is beyond my expectation. Luckily turned out quite smooth. I expect not to do any project on a portable rig like this after the release of the product. It (X1MKII??) could the standard in the industry in the years to come!!

New X1M MKII Qrp Transceiver - Available by end of year.
20 Watts kit or assembled.
http://www.kightradio.com/X1M-MKII-20-Watt-QRP-SSB-CW-Transceiver_p_319.html

A kit would be very sweet, even SMT.
(Now that Juma is no longer with us......)

There is a 50w external PA currently available:
MX-P50A FT-817 HF POWER AMPLIFIER
http://www.kightradio.com/MX-P50A-FT-817-HF-AMPLIFIER_p_315.html
Only $279.95 (plus shipping of ?)
(Actually says $359.95 minus “your savings of $50.00")
Wonder if ya gotta buy the transceiver to get the $50 discount??

Says “For the FT-817”. Probably just a marketing tool.
Interesting developments.

I think I'll stick with my K2 until more units
have been sold and more reviews written,
on any of this companies products.
I wish them well, though.

Interesting, but for one thing... 500mA receive current draw.

Hmm.  All the photos show a backlit display.  On many QRP rigs cutting the backlight can often reduce the rx power draw in half.

BG8HT just posted pictures of the X1M export models. Inspite of the Chinese contents, "pictures worth thousand words". You might see them at Dayton:

BG8HT calls the export version "platinum". The final is still rd06hvf1. Display is OLED. Slight modification in the circuit. Note the ant connect is BNC.

From the operator manual:

"Frequency Range RX & TX .1 - 30 MHz
5 ham Bands configured separately with optimized filters."

What about bands without "optimized filters" - how does a band like 17M perform?

Are there CW filters or just the same receive bandwidth as SSB?

Just got back from Dayton last night (Saturday night).

I bought the X1M and hooked it up this morning about 1/2 hour ago. I worked a CW ragchew on 40 and worked Cuba on 17 meters CW. So far, seems to work FB.

This rig has no CW filtering. No way to adjust your received bandwidth.

I thought you said this was a weak signal mode ? I HAVE a weak signal and he still didn't hear me.

FWIW: My callsign is AB8KT

$300 even.  Picked mine up and have hooked it up.  Bands terrible today - too bad.
