Looks nice...but  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have been a great admirer of Ten-Tec transceivers ever since I first used the Century 21. What a CW marvel. And I can say the same about the Argonaut 5 and its successors.

I must agree with ON6AB, what a disappointment the new Argonot VI is, no 12 meters in a QRP rig? In a way, it is OK that it comes without 6 meters, but the competition has it (even at a lower price!). Then, no 60 meters. Well, this is a bit short sighted, because it is most likely that we will get 5 MHz as a world-wide amateur band at the ITU WRC 2015 conference.

Regrettably, I will have to wait to buy the new model 539, until 12m and 60m have been included in this otherwise interesting QRP transceiver.
