Re: RFC on handhelds supporting 2-meter SSB mode



Take a hard look at the FT-817. It's not a handheld, but not much larger. In my opinion you'll get MUCH more bang for your buck buying an 817 than any of the 2m ssb handhelds or something like the 202.

See the last AMSAT journal for an article on operating FO-29 with an arrow and 817....

Subject: [amsat-bb] RFC on handhelds supporting 2-meter SSB mode

Along the same lines as a previous post about Full-Duplex handhelds, I would 
like to ask about any handhelds supporting SSB mode(s).
I am especially interested in any handhelds which could be used as an IF 
with a transconverter on the S-band.
I would believe most would be 2-meter radios, but I don't want that to be a 
limit on comments.
By googling, I get a couple of radios that might qualify, most quite old --
    Icom IC-202S
    Santec LS-202A
    Mizuho MX-2S

The IC-202S seems to have been used quite often as an IF for L and S band 
and some reference indiate it was used is such on AO-40.
My wish is to stay with handlheld radios, and not with mobiles (although 
from the pictures of the IC-202S it sort of straddles the two types).

Thanks for any comments & 73s
