Title: What rig(s) have a video port for an external band scope display?
Post by: KD0ZGW on July 14, 2019, 02:52:58 PM
Contemplating a new rig purchase and would like a bandscope.  Less than perfect vision means a larger display for a band scope is advisable.

Wondering which of the current generation of mid-priced rigs, if any, have a video port allowing use of a computer monitor for the scope.

thx in advance to anyone offering advice.

Not "mid-priced" ($3,500) but the Kenwood TS890S has a DVI-I connector for outputting either digital or analog video to an external monitor.

Also not "mid-price" ($3,100) but the Icom IC-7610 also has a DVI-D connector for an external display.

looks like I'll have to wait a while until an external video port becomes a standard feature.  thx for comments.

An external video port is a great idea for the next ic7300, that would be a great feature to stir up sales.
