I been looking for info on it myself and found no updates. I did note 4 new videos on YouTube in the last two weeks. Just put 'X1M QRP'   in search and sort by new, there videos of the X1M Platinum Version and Regular Version.

I found a Aussie site called 'spook tech engineering' that is selling the X1M Platinum radios for $350 AUD Pre-order (I am not connected to the site...just passing out info).

I had indeed seen the videos. One of my concerns is the number of DOA's on some of the first shipments.

 Yes reliability is an important consideration. It appears the Youkits have generally been well received. Maybe the X1M will be the same?


I think there is still a gap that needs to be filled. Something self contained with batteries, tuner, power supply , (usb port like the IC 7200) and whip antenna like a Manpack type of radio that will do QRP and up to 20 watts if needed.

 A cross between the SGC 2020, IC 703, FT 817 and Elecraft KX3, built like a tank yet relatively light weight.  Something like the VX 1210 by Vertex but at half the price.
