Another XBM80-2 QSO tonight

This evening I worked G6ALB 3kms away on the XBM80-2 60mW ultra-simple 80m transceiver getting a 599 report. Andrew was copied at 599 when he was using his 300mW TR6C4 simple valve transceiver which has a regen RX. Andrew also sent test transmissions using his signal generator and I was able to copy his signal when he was running 3mW output. So, the conclusion is, as AA1TJ has already proven, the design is quite a useful one and VERY simple.
