Found this radio on MFJ's web site today for US$230. Tempting... So, tempting...http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Product.php?productid=MFJ-9296
Does it really include all these bands in this radio for the price?
How do you change band? Is there a knob, switch or button or do you have to manually change out band modules?
The MFJ-9296 could be (not sure) based on the MFJ-9200 radios (MFJ-9215, MFJ-9217, MFJ-9220, MFJ-9230, MFJ-9240, and MFJ-9280). Typically, you bought one of these radios for a specific band. Then you bought any additional band modules. To change band, you had to switch out band modules.
Yet, the MFJ-9296 includes all 6 bands.
Looks like MFJ is trying to compete with Hendrix qrpkits PFR3, Ten Tec/You Kits HB1B/HB1A, and Elecraft KX1.
Anyone bought one of these MFJ-9296 or MFJ-9200 radios?
