Re: KENWOOD TM-255



Another receiver choice is a kit offered by the Remote Imaging Group in the
UK.  The RX2 sells for 52 British pounds.  Its roughly about $85 US.  Goes
together relatively well, but does not come with a case.  You must be a
member of RIG to purchase it.  If you are interested in WxSats they are an
excellent source of information and hardware.  If you want to browse, the
hardware URL is:
