OQ5M unknowingly demos RGO One modular transceiver kit

Boris LZ2JR appears to be making significant progress bringing his new modular transceiver kit to life. One of the RGO ONE prototypes seemed to be doing a fine job in November's LZDX contest working, among others, fellow blogger Franki ON5ZO/OQ5M at the 00:30 mark.

I emailed LZ2JR a few months ago inquiring of the progress of his project and was assured that he intends to bring it to market, although progress has been slow. It is a good-looking radio and it will be interesting to see how it performs.

Boris, if you need a CW-oriented beta-tester, I'm here for you buddy, friend, amigo, приятел...! Like my father told me decades ago (on an entirely different topic) - it never hurts to ask ;-)





  1. Geez what surprise to see my callsign prominently as the first word of your latest blog post. It took me a few seconds to figure out what was going on.

    How cool that you spotted this. I always wonder if my signals are out there on Y/T. Turns out they are.
    Did you see how far the S-meter moved? Loud in LZ HI


    1. Hi Franki - I had the same surprised reaction when I heard your call in the video. I've been following progress of this rig for some time now and was glad to see news and a new video posted. When I heard your callsign, I immediately realized, "Hey, I know that call!"

      73 and yes, congrats on being loud!
