From NA6DF - 21 December 2003
Just received a second hand '920 from a buddy, and am really enjoying it
a lot! Came with narrow CW filter, AM filter & FM board. I will upgrade
the filters with the INRAD products soon, but overall I am happy with
this radio. I am using a Heil Goldline PRO broadcast/studio mic fed
through a 600 ohm 1:1 transformer (bal to unbal) into the "patch" input
on the back panel of the radio. I have the internal TX DSP setting on "4"
(I think), the wideband "broadcast audio" setting. All of my usual 75
meter buddies tell me that it sounds very good, much better than the
stock hand mic, anyway....
I saw some comments about output power. I did notice that the power
meter on the 920 is *not* peak reading.(or at least doesn't react fast
enough) I have an external peak reading Palstar SWR/Wattmeter that shows
the true "peak" output, and it is as specified, even though the 920's
meter shows lower output on SSB...
Just a few thoughts, thanks for the great web site, I appreciate your
efforts providing all the info and user comments!
73 & Merry Christmas,
