Any other Xiegu G90 owners amongst us ? Having just received my own G90 must admitt I think it’s superb for what it is.

I did look at them but decided on the Yaesu 450d and glad i did.
But then again i never tried the Xiegu so it will be interesting to see what others have to say about it.

Okay thanks Alan have the Icom IC746 here for regular HF and 2 mtr work but it caught my eye and having sold a few items lately and one comming up for sale decided to give one a try, love it, yes it’s tiny but must admit it works a treat and the waterfall and built in atu as well as swr sweep for me make it a keeper. They bring out FW updates for it every so often which really does improve any niggles. 6 Mars would have been a bonus on it but again so glad I gave one a try.

Is this what you're after John. Looks easy enough to open up the frequencies.

The more I see or read about the G90 the more I want one they look like a cracking little rig.

Thinking about one myself Paddy. What puts me off is there is no FM unless you buy the GSOC Controller @ 550 Euro's.
Probably better to ask Nick Black Spirit if he could fit an FM board.  Very Happy Very Happy

Paul good news mate although I have not used it myself Fm mode was added in the very latest FW ! Tested on rx only and seemed all okay with the few stations I heard on uk40fm.

Certainly does Paul. It’s great to see a company who listens to there buyers and tries to keep improving the radio with requested updates. Loving mine ! Picked it up including the optional fan unit as well as the ct19 break out box for £290. Was only about 7 months old.
