Video: Josh’s Lab599 TX-500 Deep Dive & Review

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Don (W7SSB), who notes that Josh (KI6NAZ) at Ham Radio Crash Course has just posted his final TX-500 video. If you’ve been considering the TX-500, it’s very much worth your time:

Josh is actually sending me this very same TX-500 for review in The Spectrum Monitor magazine and here on the SWLing Post.

Please comment if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them while I have the unit here at SWLing Post HQ.

Thanks for sharing this, Josh! The TX-500 is certainly a unicorn in the world of field-portable QRP radios since it’s designed to be weather-proof.

lab599 has confirmed that they will dispatch a TX-500 loaner unit for my upcoming review.  I’m looking forward to see how it plays in the field and might compare with other QRP rigs in my arsenal!
