Photos: Xiegu G106 now available - $320

eBay link updated - see below.

 .

I first learned of the G106 from Thomas K4SWL's blog.

I'm not interested in this radio but I do like to follow the development of ham transceivers from China just to see what they get right and what they don't.

 

The photos on the eBay ad reveal one important fact - unless it's stealthily hidden, there's no USB jack. Therefore, there's no internal sound card. To operate digital modes, at least two cables will be needed from the PC: audio and CAT.

Unless there is no CAT control, as is the case with the "Optimized for digital" FX-4C.

There is a "DE-19 digital adapter (optional), it can be easily connected to the computer and complete FT8 communication."

The G106is now available via eBay for $320.
