    Yup.... hate the darn thing. SELCAL checks are a royal pain with 10 airplanes trying to do it at the same time on one frequency.

    Icom makes a classy 150 watt ssb unit, or, in these days of poor propagation which will last a few years, JRC has a 500 watt unit that'll set you back 15 - 18k, also a fine radio.

    Just saw a Dorian post, Barometer Bob in the Abacos monitors SSB 18 hours a day. Good intel for those that have SSB's and use it. Good site for the Bahamas.
